Beer Recipe: Thirst Trouncing Wheat Beer

A clean, crisp wheat beer with a deliciously dominant display of hop aromatics.
The top quality wheat malt crates a creamy texture, with the Torrified Wheat adding a mellow zingy mouthfeel which is backed up by a chewy, almost bready Pilsner malt backbone.
A trusted English caramel malt imparts a touch of sweetness and colour. The clean wheat flavour pops its head through the citric-dense hop aroma. Pours with a wispy creamy wheat malt head – and you’ve got yourself a quaffable and refreshing beer perfect for Summer.
