Temple Soba Ale (Retired)

Temple Brewing

A beer that first made its appearance as a specialty brew for the Shinobi Japanese Garden at Beer DeLuxe early in 2010, it became the fifth member of the Temple permanent range when the brewery opened its doors in December 2011. A tweaked recipe for the beer based on the traditional German altbier style has led to a firmer bitterness thanks to generous lashings of noble European hops. As you might expect from Temple, there's a twist, in this case the use of Japanese buckwheat as part of the malt grain, resulting in a unique nutty, "salt cracker" character. That said, it's ultimately a very clean, very beery beer.
