Pink Lightning

A Bottled Lightning Co. collaboration brew

Young Henrys x BLCo member Matt Cobb


Style: Elderflower and Hibiscus Pale Ale
Strength: 4.4%
Malts: Golden Promise, Rolled Wheat, Carapils and Acidulated malt
Hops: Kohatu, Centennial and Ella
Additional: Elderflower and Hibiscus Flower

This winter ’15 collaboration pours a vibrant pink colour due to the late addition of hibiscus flowers in the fermentation process, also adding high floral notes to the aroma. The Elderflower added during the boil give balanced tannins to the palate, the acidulated malts add a slight citrus tang while the rolled wheat adds depth to the complex mouth feel. At 4.4% this pale ale is pretty, delicate and a great session beer.
