Northern Monk - Ice Cream Pale 26.02
Northern Monk Brew Co
As we enter summer, our patrons series tour with Sarah Harris takes us to the Scarborough coast. The sun is in the sky, the fish and chips were fresh and salty and all that is left is to complete the perfect day is to head down to the beach, picking up a double cone ice cream (with flake) on the way! This double ice cream pale is designed to replicate that taste of the seaside in delicious beer form. We built the beer up over a base of silky flaked oats and mouthfeel-building chit malt as part of an extra pale malt grist. To bring out the creaminess we craved, we combined lactose milk sugar and Madagascan vanilla to bring out the most classic of ice cream flavours. For our second scoop, we went with 100g/l of strawberry puree during fermentation and finished off with the all-important flake, with a late addition of milk chocolate.
