West Kerry Brewery, nestled in the picturesque landscapes of Ireland, is a beacon of traditional brewing. With a history that intertwines with the very fabric of the region, this brewery has always been about crafting beers that tell a story. The Vintage Ale is no exception.

This ale is a tribute to the time-honoured traditions of brewing. It's not just a drink; it's an experience that evolves with every sip. The complexity of this beer comes from the meticulous selection of six different malts, each bringing its unique character to the brew. From the rich, earthy tones to the subtle sweet notes, the malts lay down a foundation that is both robust and inviting.

But the malts are just the beginning. Five different hops are introduced into the brew, each adding its distinct flavour profile. This results in a beer that is both harmonious and contrasting, with each ingredient playing its part to perfection.

Tasting Notes:

  • Appearance: Deep mahogany with a hint of ruby, crowned with a creamy off-white head.
  • Aroma: A rich bouquet of roasted malts, caramel, and a hint of dark fruits.
  • Flavour: A delightful blend of sweet caramel, toasted bread, and a touch of dark chocolate. The hops add a subtle bitterness, balancing the sweetness perfectly.
  • Mouthfeel: Smooth and medium-bodied, with a velvety texture that lingers on the palate.

Pairing this ale with food elevates the experience to a whole new level. The roasted malt flavours complement smoked meats and fish, creating a harmony of flavours that dance on the palate. And for those moments when you crave something sweet, the Vintage Ale's subtle sweet notes make it a perfect partner for desserts and chocolates.
