We touched on some styles in this unit (we'll get more in depth in later units) but try to identify the style based on the clues below:

17.) Recognised for its distinct hop profile which consists of grapefruit, pine, citrus and spice character. Expect a good balance of malt and hops. _______________________________________
18.) This lager is pale in colour. It has a fabulously clean malt profile that is balanced out by spicy/floral noble hops with a lovely balancing bitterness. ________________________________________

20.) This style of the India Pale Ale is most known for being hop-forward with assertive bitterness which generally present citrus, pine, floral and spice characteristics. It is medium-bodied with a moderate maltiness and a clean, dry and lingering bitter finish. ________________________________________

In recent years, alcohol-free beer has become a real trend in the beer market here in the UK. More and more big beer brands and small craft breweries are starting to brew it to the delight of non-alcoholic drinkers. However, there are many questions about this kind of beer.
We’re back for the second edition of ‘Must Try Kegs’. Last week we spotlighted three fantastic kegs from our MultiTRY range and this week is no different. From a personal favourite lager of mine, to a couple of flavour sensations, take a read through why we think you have to try these three.
