Ales Tasted:

Aaron’s Beer Suggestion:

  • Double Cone Ice Cream Pale by Northern Monk (Ice cream Double Pale) – 8.2% ABVThis double ice cream pale is designed to replicate that taste of the seaside in delicious beer form. They built the beer up over a base of silky flaked oats and mouthfeel-building chit malt as part of an extra pale malt grist. To bring out the creaminess they craved, they combined milk sugar and Madagascan vanilla to bring out the most classic of ice cream flavours. For the second scoop, they went with 100g/l of strawberry puree during fermentation and finished off with the all-important flake, with a late addition of milk chocolate.
