This mid-strength probably isn’t what you were expecting. Is it an ale? Is it a lager? No, it’s a California Common, a hybrid style that uses a lager yeast, but fermented at a warmer ale temperature.
Although this is the lowest alcohol beer of the Felons core range, it’s also the darkest in colour. The Middy shines with lovely copper tones, thanks to the addition of some Carared malt in the grain bill, which also adds notes of caramel. While this style calls for gentle aromas and flavours, this beer still has interesting hints of fruitiness from the yeast-derived esters, and a tiny bit of roasty character in the aftertaste.
But this is all too much description for a beer that’s designed to be tasty, dry, and sessionable… and is exactly that.
