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 flavour 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.
