WHITEHOUSE, YK – Yukon Brewing has recently made two new seasonal brews available for growler purchases, and has a third following later this week.
Now on tap are English Mild and Yukon Crude Stout, which are described as follows:
We once read a statement that the English Mild is “readily suited to drinking in quantity”. While we always encourage responsible use, we get where the author was coming from! This beer is a rich brown in colour, but light in body with a slight malt accent, and only enough bitterness to provide a bit of balance. If a darker beer scares you, try this one… it will cure your fears and might even turn you into an advocate.
Yukon Crude falls into the category of Dry Stout, although the alcohol content is most definitely at the high end of the range. We used a bit of oatmeal for body building (yes, beer requires body building, too), but not nearly enough to be an Oatmeal Stout. True to the style, we used a portion of roasted, unmalted barley, which accounts for a good deal of the dryness. The use of Chocolate and Black malts delivers a secondary note of cocoa, which lasts into the finish. The word that best describes this beer, we think, is sumptuous.
Set to join these two on Friday is Yer Gallus Scottish Export Ale, although no further details or tasting notes have been announced.
