Kees Bubberman continues to brew his tasty creations from his new facility in Middleburg, in The Netherlands. This one is perfect for the European summer, and it goes alright any time of year over here.
Pale Ale Citra is a tasty little beer of 4.6% ABV. And who isn’t a fan of Citra hops? It has to be my favourite of all the hops.
For the home brewers, the beer uses Maris Otter and Cara Munich malts for a solid biscuit and caramel malt backbone. Just enough to support the big doses of Citra and Summit hops. (No – this beer is not a single hop.)
The beer is then dry-hopped with Citra to ensure it is bursting with loads of lemon citrus, fresh cut grass, tropical fruits and a little resinous pine.
The beer finishes quite dry, with a definite lingering bitterness.
