A Spooky Brew
Perfectly timed for Halloween, Greene King has released Gangly Ghoul beer. Gangly Ghoul uses some crystal malt in the recipe as well as a special brewing sugar. These ingredients give a warming toffee character to the beer with the special sugar adding an extra rich fruit cake note. Challenger hops add a fresh ‘dry hop’ or classic ‘English hop’ flavour often described as herbal. The First Gold hops in the recipe contribute a touch of orange peel citrus and some spiciness. All of these ingredients together contribute to an easy drinking beer with enough complexity to maintain interest.
