Exit 33

The new special from Exit 33 is called Lightweight. At just 3.8% this pale ale may be small on strength but it’s big on flavour. It has a moderate to high hop flavour, showing a citrusy hop character, the balance being towards the late hops of Chinook & Simcoe.

Also brought back for this Month is Citrella at 4.8%.  ‘We are asked for it all the time so we brewed it one last time for this year as both Citra & Ella hops are in short supply’ Last year’s harvest in the States was poor due to bad weather and Ella is hard to come by as one merchant now has a monopoly on all Australian varieties.

The return of dark nights’ ushers in dark beers and it will be soon time to release our two limited edition oak barrel aged specials. Nut Brown whisky cask is a robust 6% old style ale heavy on malt flavour and has been maturing in oak whisky hog’s heads since February.  Next up will be 7% Nicaraguan Rum Cask Stout, which is about as good as it gets for stout lovers.  Our regular 5% oat stout smiles at you, this beer is winking!
