Background and objectives
The Kissmeyer Garage series is meant to be a ‘no-nonsense’ take on the best, traditional beer styles. ‘The best’ according, of course, to my own preferences and the interpretations of these styles in the Garage series are on one hand in full respect of their heritage and virtues, but at the same time with that little personal twist that make them stand out from the rest. My aim has been to make very accessible versions of the styles, as that is the way I like them, and a harmonious balance between the malts and the hops, accentuating fruity and aromatic aromas and flavours. Eagle Kiss is my take on the positive, relatively new trend involving session beers – beers with lots of aroma, flavor and taste but with very moderate levels of alcohol. Eagle Kiss is a session IPA, so it is very hop driven with a robust bitterness. The hops are all New Zealand varieties that give an intriguing exotic fruit character to aroma and flavor.
Bright, pale golden coloured with a rich, white head.
Very fruity and floral hop aroma with exotic fruit characters and only a hint of malt.
Very dry, noticeably hoppy, boldly bitter and with a short, crisp aftertaste.
Light body, dry for style.
Fish and seafood, chicken, salads, pizza, ‘hot’ Mexican or Asian dishes, lighter cheeses.
A very light, dry and crisp beer with lots of fruity hop character. Meant to be very refreshing and effervescent – the ideal thirst quencher! However, ‘The Eagle’ is also surprisingly versatile with respect to food matching.
