Bone Idol

October’s guest ale is a dry hopped seasonal treat

 Just in time for Halloween, this month’s guest ale from Caledonian Brewery strips brewing right down to the bone. Brewers at Edinburgh’s last remaining original brewery have taken a step back to craft their new limited edition Bone Idol dry hopped ale this month. In addition to the traditional method of pouring sacks of fresh, full leaf hops into the boil, extra hops are added at the end – giving the ale a depth of hop aroma and flavour.
The 4.6% Dry Hopped Ale is a rich copper beer, with fresh citrus aromas, soft malt and a dry and dusty finish. This American pale ale is well suited to a wide range of food pairings for the colder evenings, including steaks and burgers.
Craig Steven, Caledonian Brewery’s Beers Manager and Scotland’s first beer sommelier explains: “This dry hopped ale is perfect for drinkers seeking a rich beer to welcome in the darker evenings and colder weather, especially with food. Centennial and Cascade hops combine to create a classic American pale ale that will have your customers frightfully excited and coming back for more – we can’t wait to hear what you think.”
Bone Idol is available to order on draught nationwide from 25th September 2015 and throughout October.
