It's time for the return of The Craig, with Goat brewer Craig back for his third annual release. First time around, he brewed an American Pale Ale before opting for a nitrogenated English style Red Ale second time around in 2012. Last year's beer found favour with many, including judges at the Australian International Beer Awards, so this year he's sticking with the tried and tested. Carbonated using nitrogen rather than CO2 to give it a fine bead and a dense, rich foam, it's being tagged an ESB (Extra Special Bitter) and boasts floral, grassy hops up front and soft caramel flavours and a hint of roastiness at the end. Rich and creamy, it should make for a lovely transition into the cooler months.
