4 Pines Autumn Ale

4 Pines (AB InBev)

Released March 24th, 2013

Inspiration for a new 4 Pines beer can apparently come from many different sources. It can, like their stout - the 'Certified Space Beer' - spend years in continual development and involve aeronautical engineers and zero-gravity flights. Others, like this one, have a rather more straightforward genesis. The story goes that 4 Pines brewers Andrew Tweddell and Chris Willcock were chatting with the bar supervisor, Chris Moore, when the conversation turned along the lines of:

Chris W: We need to brew another Cask Ale for after St Pat's Day.
Andrew: What should we brew?
Chris M: The Summer Ale was popular.
Chris W: Yeah, but it's not summer anymore.
Chris M: Autumn Ale?
Chris W: Makes sense.
Andrew: Autumn Amber Ale?
Chris W: Brilliant!

And so we have the 4 Pines Autumn Amber Ale, which the brewers have described as 'a pretty typical American Amber style, with a toasty malt sweetness and rounded tropical and grassy hop notes�. Those come from the Mosaic hops from the USA which were used to experiment in bittering, aroma and in dry hopping. We've been told that's it's drinking perfectly from the hand pump and at the current rate won't last more than a couple of weeks.
