Here’s a smooth-drinking amber ale with a nice balance of maltiness and hoppiness. (by the way, order tramadol online when I typed ‘hoppiness’ it got auto-corrected to ‘happiness’ which seems reasonable!)

We threw the dark malts in at the end of the mash, in order to grab their colour but not too much of the flavour. It worked and we ended up with the ruby red colour we were looking for with just a subtle degree of dark-roast flavour.

This recipe costs £18.
