Description

Stout, a word that does double duty in England and Norway, originally denoted a strong beer. Either the darker, Porter Stout or the lighter, Pale Stout. Stouts used to be generally stronger than the regular, everyday ale. Nowadays the term tends to mean a dark, top-fermented brew. Here at Kinn, we take our history seriously, so we brew our Gamleguten "Old Boy" Pale Stout like a brown ale, with a taste that is darker than the pale hue would suggest. As a strong, relatively pale ale, it is a proud representative of the Pale Stout family. Gamleguten has a complex, though balanced, malt flavor with hints of milk chocolate, nuts, caramel, and a touch of coffee. To the mash, we add Pale Ale malt, amber malt, and caramel malt, with just the one-hop variety from East Kent Goldings. As with all our Anglo style beers, our yeast partner is Wyeast 1318 London Ale III. Gamleguten won a bronze medal in Barcelona Beer Challenge in 2016.
