5/9 Lightning Amber Ale Cask

Lightning American Amber Ale is Jim’s take on the English Extra Special Bitter. This recipe has been brewed largley unchanged for upwards of 25 years while the head brewer was still in graduate school. This version is hoppier, more malty, and has a higher ABV than its British cousin, but retains a suprising balance and drinkability. A tall cream-colored head tops off this gorgeous dark amber beer. Cask conditioned firkin release, May 9th at 3pm!
