Angel and The Sword seems like an odd name for a peace offering, but hear us out. Sometimes you just have to blend cultures. Toledo, Spain is an UNESCO World Heritage Site called “the city of three cultures” for the continuous coexistence of Jews, Christians, and Muslims since ancient times. They haven’t always gotten along, at times horrendously so, but they do their best. Iron sharpens iron, as their good books say. An area famed for sword production, our favorite monument remains Juan de Ávalos' "statue of peace" outside Alcázar fortress, representing a winged female holding up her sword to the sky. Here is a great craft beer which IS NOT IPA. A departure from true-to-style brewing, we put a little bit of everything we've learned into this uniquely inclusive expression. Biscuity and bittersweet, familiar and unfamiliar, way more going on than its light color and alcohol content would suggest. Let us raise our goblets to the sky in one accord.
COLOUR: Clear golden amber with white foam
BJCP STYLE: Who knows? Maybe 23. Maybe 11C. It actually doesn't fit neatly into any one BJCP category. It's English Yeast, English Hops and our favorite malts from all over the world. It's a hybrid of sorts!
NOTABLE INGREDIENTS: Diverse US and UK malts, timeless Fuggles & Goldings hops, ale yeast.
This was the best American made ESB I have found. The aromas and flavors were spot on for the style. I wish I has easy access to this - I would drink it all the time. A must try from Civil Life.
We send out the beer every week in an email as well - some people like that more than having to go through the website or checking our facebook. So join up!
