Umbel Ale - A Floral Twist on an Amber Ale Classic
If you're looking for a refreshing and satisfying beer that's full of flavour, look no further than Nethergate Brewery's Umbel Ale. As one of our oldest recipes, this craft beer has been winning awards and tantalising tastebuds for nearly two decades.
At the heart of Umbel Ale is a rich amber ale that's complemented by a subtle hint of coriander. This delicate floral ale is created by toasting fresh coriander seeds and adding them to the brew during the boil, creating a festival of flavour and aroma that's hard to resist. The result is a beer that's perfect for quenching your thirst and indulging your senses.
Umbel Ale's unique flavour is created by combining traditional brewing techniques with a blend of Challenger and whole leaf hops, Maris Otter and Crystal malts, and that special touch of coriander. It's a blend that's truly a class apart, with a taste that complements everything from pub grub to spicy curries.
How Does It Taste?
If you're a beer connoisseur, Umbel Ale is a must-try for your tasting list. Get ready to savour the smooth, silky texture of this amber ale, which is followed by a slightly spicy taste and a subtle floral aroma. As you sip, you'll notice the rich malt notes that give way to hoppy hints of citrus and grapefruit, creating a complex flavour profile that's never overwhelming. But beware the big, sharp yeasty aftertaste that will leave your taste buds tingling.

Our skilled brewers have crafted this unique ale using a blend of Challenger, Nugget, Cascade and Ekuanot hops, which are added at just the right moment to create an unforgettable taste experience.
