Fyne Ales - New Seasonal ale JARL

To be Launched at the Beer Fest, Saturday 19th June

To celebrate the Beer Fest, Fyne Ales are launching a new seasonal beer - Jarl.
This is their first single hopped beer (using the same hop for bittering as for aroma) and it is produced with the latest American hop Citra. They recently tasted it from their fermentor, describing it with a fantastic aroma, with LOADS of tangerine and tropical fruits. At 4.0% abv it should be easy drinking too.
The reason for the name (pronounced Yarl) is that this beer is replacing Somerled in their seasonal line up. Somerled as you may know was one of the rulers of their part of Scotland in the dim & distant past, and the Jarl's were the Viking Earls who were contenders for power at the same time. They thought they'd see how they stacked up against each other........
