EPOCHAL Blue Label - 375ml
It pours golden amber with mountains of tight foam. There are aromas of lemon peel, pink grapefruit and rose water from the Cascade and a pronounced stone fruit character from the Simcoe, with notes of orange, apricot and passionfruit curd. Aging in whisky casks on their third use brings a botanical oak leaf note which adds depth to the beer. On the palate, it’s full but light with candied apples, pine resin and a supple, mouth-coating bitterness. Scottish pale ale fermented in oak casks, hopped with Cascade and Simcoe

EPOCHAL BARREL-AGED BEERS - Epochal brewery makes beer with a sense of place. Whether through use of local barley, unique house microflora, our special Scottish water, the impact of climate on the aging process or inspiration drawn from local brewing traditions, Epochal beer is particular to Scotland and to the brewery itself. All of Epochal’s beer is fermented with our house Saccharomyces culture in open fermenters before a long, slow fermentation in wood with our house Brettanomyces strains. This process creates inimitable, complex, delicious flavours which were once common in Scottish beer.
While Scottish brewing history provides us with much inspiration, we are just as inspired by modern craft beer, contemporary brewing science and our creative curiosity as by the beers of the past. Our beer is modern and our own, but with roots in Scotland’s brewing heritage. Epochal specialises in barrel fermented stock pale ales, table beers, porters, stouts and Scotch ales. Some of these we’ve released already, whereas some haven’t arrived yet - when you’re fermenting them in wood, these things take time. They’ll be good though.
