REVIEW – Milk & Honey
BEER NAME: Milk & Honey
BEER STYLE: Ale / Bitter
BREWERY: Mitchell’s Brewery
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.
- 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
