Caledonian Brewery steadily releases a seasonal guest ale each month for the on-trade and it’s July and August line-up includes ‘Road to Rio’ a 4% ABV ale.
The beer has been created to feed the excitement of the biggest sporting event of the year, Rio de Janeiro’s Olympic Games.
The limited edition beer is brewed from a mixture of both English and southern hemisphere hops and is a very suitably gold coloured brew with both “soft fruit aromas” and “a generous hint of lemon and a gentle maIt finish.”
Craig Steven, Caledonian’s Beers Manager and Beer Academy Sommelier, says, “We wanted to create an ale that feeds into the excitement of the biggest sporting event of the year. Brewed using hops from England, New Zealand and America, the result is a soft, fruity ale with a punchy citrus finish. Available to the on trade throughout the competition, Road to Rio is the perfect complement to the variety of sport we’ve got ahead of us!”
