Simple Things Fermentations Big Ideas Series 08 Scottish Export Simple Things Fermentations
Style : Scotch Ale ABV : 5.5% Bottle Size : 330ml In this contemporary take on the classic Scottish 80 Shilling style fresh pine aroma hits as you raise the glass, evoking thoughts of woodland wanders. The malts provide a luscious caramel-toffee sweetness and spruce tips contribute soft resin citrus notes. There are hints of vanilla and cinnamon that recall Coca Cola or apple crumble along with just enough rounded bitterness to ensure a clean, crisp finish. This beer is about everyday opulence; polished but superbly drinkable.
Simple Things Fermentations Big Ideas Series 10.2 Pale Ale Simple Things Fermentations
Style : Pale Ale ABV : 5.6% Bottle Size : 330ml Our Pale Ale (5.6%) is the latest version of the first beer we released. It's full-flavoured and fruity, brewed with European hop varieties selected for their punchy citrus, berry and tropical aromas. Hallertau Blanc and Mandarina Bavaria from Germany combine to give tropical and citrus fruit with notes of gooseberry and cassis, which is complimented by French Barbe Rouge - the greatest hop no one's ever heard of - from which you get loads of strawberry and raspberry and a touch of citrus. For this latest incarnation, we've swapped to a cleaner yeast strain to let the hops really shine.  This beer has improved with every version we've released, and this is the best one so far, for sure. It's a really tasty and well balanced Pale Ale that's a bit different, but not too different.
Simple Things Fermentations Big Ideas Series 12.1 Table Beer Simple Things Fermentations
Style : Table Beer ABV : 3.0% Bottle Size : 330ml Light in colour and in alcoholic strength, yet full-bodied and full-flavoured, this is a crisp, citrus smasher. Generously hopped with Lemondrop, Centennial and Kazbek hops and brewed with a healthy dose of oats for a satisfying mouthfeel, this cheeky 3%-er is a small beer with big ideas.
Simple Things Fermentations Big Ideas Series 20 Wheat Wine Simple Things Fermentations
Style : Wheatwine ABV : 9.0% Bottle Size : 330ml A richly textured sipping beer with expressive fruity and hoppy notes. Light amber with a golden/orange tint and some haze, topped with a tight white head that clings to the side of the glass. It’s like inhaling Christmas cake mix; a big, fruity aroma with orange, banana, toffee, candied peel, sherry and dried fruit. Half of the grain bill is wheat, so there’s a bready-honey sweetness that’s balanced by a firm hop bitterness from English First Gold and Bramling Cross hops plus a dash of Mandarina Bavaria. Orange peel and boiled sweets mingle and there’s a sherry-like finish in which tannins, resin, citrus fruits and clean light alcohol notes linger long. Needless to say, it's amazing with cheese and will age well.
Simple Things Fermentations Big Ideas Series 21 Golden Ale Simple Things Fermentations
Style : Golden Ale ABV : 3.8% Bottle Size : 330ml A super refreshing, sessionable Golden Ale brewed with Centennial and Amarillo. Golden in colour with a snowy white head. Sweet and delicately malty at first, with Maris Otter and Cara Gold providing the perfect base to showcase the floral, slightly earthy, orange-grapefruit hop aroma. Mouthfeel is smooth with the characteristic soft Champagne-style bubbles of bottle conditioning. Then comes the balancing bitterness and you’re lining up your next sip with the crisp, dry finish still lingering in your mouth. 
Simple Things Fermentations Big Ideas Series 22 Bretted 80-/ Simple Things Fermentations
Style : Scotch Ale ABV : 7.2% Bottle Size : 330ml Ageing a robust Scottish Export with wild yeast evolves this humble and too-often overlooked style into a deeper and more complex experience. Layers of malty sweetness are gently deconstructed and enhanced by the brettanomyces over the course of a year to create a truly exceptional and refined beer.  Pours dark amber/mahogany in colour with a persistent off white head and good lacing. The aroma is fruity funk with clear wild ferment aromatics; raisins soaked in sherry, sour cherries, blue cheese, earthy in a refined, floral way. There’s an underlying smooth malt sweetness, as you’d expect in an Export, but chocolate, caramel and toffee flavours are now part of a much broader flavour spectrum. Moderate bitterness and a dry, tangy and slightly salty finish
