Winter is here and so is Coopers highly anticipated 2019 Coopers Vintage Ale recipe pack. As always, the brewers at Coopers love to introduce a new hop variety into Vintage Ale, and this year the star of the show is Mosaic. They replicated the brewhouse process, by adding Mosaic and Cascade hops at both late hopping and dry hopping stages. Providing enticing aromas of apricot, citrus fruits and pine, these set the scene for a palate of roasted malt, nuts and toffee. Expect to enjoy a clean bitterness and a smooth, velvety finish. If lovingly cellared, this strong ale will develop sweet malt flavours, soft toffee undertones as the hop characters mellow, rewarding those who can resist temptation.
Recipe contains English Bitter, Wheat Malt Extract, Dextrose, Crystal malt, Mosaic and Cascade hops, Nottingham yeast
