Red Herring Smoked Ale Brewed by Green Jack Brewing - United Kingdom

Red Herring Smoked Ale Brewed by Green Jack Brewing - United Kingdom   

There are few smoked beers being made in the UK, and this one – hailing from a brewery that was a former herring smokehouse – is a gem. Wittily named, a red herring is something that distracts attention from the real issues; supposedly, escaping criminals would drag strong smelling red herring across a trail to make pursuing blood-hounds lose the scent.

Green Jack Smoked Ale

Red Herring a 5% ABV smoked ale is made with pale ale malt, wheat malt, crystal malt, chocolate malt, and sugar, with UK Challenger hops to complement the smokiness of the grain. The resulting ale is fruity red with a bonfire smoke smell, a balanced plummy taste, gentle bitter finish, soft carbonation, and a beautiful, pillowy mouthfeel. Very easy drinking and comfortable ale. Wow! 30 liter KeyKeg only.

This smoked ale is a yummy, plummy, smoky treat with ham, smoked cheese, kippered herring, and nuts  while reading novels by Dorothy Sayers, Agatha Christie and Patricia Cornwell.

The Green Jack Brewing Company
Originally founded in 1993 in Oulton Broad by Real Ale enthusiast Tim Dunford, The Green Jack Brewery Company temporarily ceased trading in 2001 after a split with business partners. However, in 2003, Tim and Lee installed a purpose-built 2000 litre plant behind The Triangle Tavern, therefore making it the UKs most easterly Brewery. Since then a much larger brewery has been built in Lowestoft to compliment the micro brewery and this exciting new brewery started brewing in early 2009, making Green Jack one of the largest real ale brewing companies in East Anglia. Tims Ales have won numerous CAMRA Beer Festival Awards over the years including best winter beer in the land!

Green Jack ales are well-known for their “hoppy character”. With locally malted wheat and barley, traditional English cone hops are blended with hops from the New World in generous proportions to give the ales floral, citrus and fruity aromas. Green Jack ales are a testament to Tims taste, skills and commitment to individuality and quality. The move to large purpose built brewing premises in Lowestoft is the dawn of a new chapter in the Green Jack success story and we hope that we can continue to increase our national presence as one of the finest real ale breweries in the UK.
