Small Gods X Gladfield X Freestyle X Froth / The Care of The Reaper Man - 6% 440ml 4 Pack

$35.00 NZD
From dusk till dawn, in the freezing cold and the blazing heat, the reaper man works tirelessly. In the fields of Canterbury the crops are coaxed from seed to sack, through malting floor and kiln to bring us the freshest, most characterful malt. In the towering hop gardens of Nelson, stringers work high in the air to provide fruitful pathways for the bines to climb, while on the ground the cones are rubbed and sniffed by experts to select harvest dates with care. In a meticulous Wellington lab, yeast wranglers strive to provide the optimum conditions for their yeast with applications of sugar and oxygen. If not for the care of the Reaper Man, there would be no harvest, and your glass would be empty, so raise it up in salute.

This NZ Pale Ale exists thanks to the care of dozens of people. From fields, gardens, kilns and vats our growers, pickers, fermenters, stringers, scientists and maltsters work hard to deliver the highest quality NZ ingredients.
Gladfield American Ale malt uses Autumn Barley, kilned for a clean, vibrant base, paired with Supernova, a malt made with lightly roasted winter barley to impart a nutty, toasted character and a hint of sweetness.
From Nelson’s Freestlye Hops come new season Motueka Hops. Carefully chosen from late in the harvest to bring out rich, tropical papaya character.
In a Wellington Lab, Froth have nurtured a culture of their Buddy ale yeast for a clean ferment leaving just enough residual sugar to provide a rounded smooth finish.
