BEER NAME: Milk & Honey

BEER STYLE: Ale / Bitter

BREWERY: Mitchell’s Brewery

REGION: Knysna

ABV 5.5%

INGREDIENTS: Barley, hops & water

BREWER’S NOTES: In 1983 Mitchell’s opened its doors in Kynsna, a little town we like to think of as the land of Milk & Honey. As a dedication to our birthplace, we brew this handsome golden Ale to be full-bodied and big on hops. During careful maturation, the signature flavours of Knysna’s early goodness, balanced with hints of sweet maltiness begin to develop, making it the Brew Master’s choice.

TASTING NOTES:

  • APPEARANCE: Deep amber, fairly dense cream coloured head which holds up well
  • AROMA: Toasted malt and sweet caramel with fruity hops
  • FLAVOUR: Slightly malt-forward, with a caramel sweetness, notes of bread, coriander and a fruity hop bitter ending
  • MOUTHFEEL: Full-bodied, subtle carbonation and super easy to drink.
  • OVERALL: When the brew master manages to get a full-bodied Ale to balance well between maltiness and bitter, fruity hops, that’s when you know you have a winner. Milk & Honey is no exception, they got it right with this one, no major overstatements, just good hearty flavour, certainly a beer that most would enjoy.
  • PAIR WITH: Pork, lamb, steaks, turkey, tex-mex food and spicy food
