A full bodied yet deceptively easy drinking strong ale with great flavour and length. Mallee Bull is brewed with a complex malt character that includes delicious biscuity and toffee notes derived from UK grown Maris Otter and enhanced through the use of Crystal and Chocolate malts supplied from the highly renowned Simpson's maltings in Berwick-upon-Tweed. In addition, a generous charge of Simpson's unique Golden Naked Oats adds a subtle nuttiness to the mid palate. So take the bull by the horns and watch out, it can kick!
Deeply amber coloured. Although designed to really show off the very best that British malts have to offer, Mallee Bull is well balanced through the judicious use of English Challenger hops in the main boil and a dual late addition of Goldings & Fuggles. The resulting bitterness is soft and juicy. Rapid top fermentation at a relatively high temperature leads to the development of soft fruit flavours that, along with a slight tartness, help to complement the full bodied sweet malt character. Delicious with most red meats, great to cook with too, or a simple ploughman's sanger with pickled onion. Alcohol 5.6%
