Product Details - Bad King John

See below for information about this product:

Product Type(s): Alcoholic Drinks / British Corner /

ABV 5.8%

Outright winner of the "Sainsbury's GREAT BRITTISH BEER HUNT" 2011 BAD KING JOHN is the partner beer to Ivanhoe. Where Ivanhoe is all about balance BKJ is all about crispness. It looks like a stout or a porter but BKJ is in fact a black burton ale. It's what you get when you make a dark beer using the really hard water and brewing techniques of a Burton Pale Ale. This kind of beer has a flinty edge to it from the high sulphate content of the water in the same way that some French wines like Chablis do. Very distinctive and not like the soft rounded nature of a porter or stout. Hops are just used for bitterness in this kind of beer and there is very little in the way of hop aroma. The aroma is mostly from the fermentation. Use of a high fermentation temperature and an ale yeast produces a lot of fruity ester character. Ripe plums and very ripe sweet cherries.
