Ursa Major Barley Wine (9.5% abv) was created back in February when Shawn Moen and Garrett Pederson of 9 Mile Legacy visited Nonsuch for a brew day. Patiently aged since then, it’s described as follows:
Pop the cork and you’ll be met with a rich bouquet of sweet malt, light alcohol, citrus, and grapefruit aromas rounded out over soft caramel notes. Pour this moderately carbonated barley wine with confidence into your favourite snifter-style glass and allow your hand to warm the beer and reveal its true character. With a thick, rich mouthfeel, this clean-tasting barley wine opens on the palate with mildly roasted caramel notes from the Midnight Malt alongside citrus notes from the Falconers Flight hops. Sweet alcohol notes will also make themselves known before a mildly bitter finish and a pleasant warming sensation from the elevated alcohol.
Ursa Major is available now via the Nonsuch Brewing online store.
