A Face With No Name

ABV:
6
Hops:
Centennial
Taste:
Toasty, Caramel, Resin
Is it an American Amber? Is it a Red IPA? Who really knows. An ambiguous blend of big toasty malts balanced out by carefully chosen spicey, resiny hops to give a beer packed with flavour. Biscuity, caramel notes with a touch of citrus and pine.

Winner of the Gold Award in American Amber Ale at Barcelona Beer Challenge

Back in the early days of the brewery, there wasn’t a lot of money to spend on whatever ingredients and equipment and whatever else Gavin dreamed of having. So looking at the ingredients they already had available, it looked like they could start brewing a pretty good red IPA. 

However as they started brewing with the malt and hops they had, it was more of a hybrid between a red IPA and an American amber. It started to be lovingly referred to as “Tempest’s Bastard Child”, but we couldn’t very well put that on a shelf so Gavin came up with “A Face With No Name”.

What you'll find is an unusual but very balanced beer packed with toasty, caramel notes, contrasted against raisin elements. It's a beer with big malt character, so the hops chosen give notes of resin, spice, and a touch of citrus to balance out the malt. 

Is it an American Amber? Is it a Red IPA? Who really knows. This ambiguity is what inspires the "Insert Style Here" on the front of the label, and the non-sensical Lorem Ipsum text on the side of the bottles translated back to English to make even less sense.
