They have back down the bitterness within range of 20ish IBUs, because the dryness will accentuate the perception of bitterness. For the aroma additions, we add a healthy dose of New Zealand hops (Motueka and Wai-Iti), because it adds a nice soft tropical note to the beer. They intentionally steered away from Pacific Northwest hops, which may be a little too distracting and assertive in a beer like this. Expect stone-fruit, apricot, gooseberry and zesty citrus in this beer.

BREWLANDER Hope Summer Ale

BREWLANDER Hope Summer Ale. The key motivation behind this beer was to brew something which is perfect for Singapore’s tropical climate. I remember asking myself on different occasions what an ideal beer would be for watching sports games, cooling down on a hot afternoon, chilling by the pool, or having a barbeque.

I would be drawn to a beer that is under 5% abv, clean in malt profile, not too bitter with decent amounts of citrus and tropical hop aroma, and most importantly, it must be extremely thirst quenching and crushable (Drinkable)!

After having a general idea of how they envision the beer to be, they generally start on the malt department. In this case, they really want it to be clean and fairly neutral like a Blonde or Golden Ale but with a little more character instead of being “lifeless” or “soulless” like many commercial filtered lagers. They accomplish this by using a blend of base malt, with a low percentage of Cara-Gold from Crisp Maltings for colour.

To make the beer sessionable and quaffable, They have selected an ale yeast strain where fermentation byproducts are lager-like and low in esters, phenols, sulphur and diacetyl. This yeast stays out of the way and maintains a good balance between the malt and hop, producing a fairly dry and crisp finish.
