Umbel Ale - A Floral Delight in a Bottle

If you're looking for a quintessential English ale, look no further than Umbel Ale, our multi-award-winning amber ale. This delicate brew has been a staple of Nethergate Brewery for almost 20 years and continues to delight beer lovers around the world. The secret to its success? The subtle hint of coriander that gives it a unique floral aroma and taste. Freshly toasted coriander seeds are added to the grist and boil, resulting in a festival of flavour and aroma that will have you coming back for more.

But don't be fooled by its delicate nature – Umbel Ale is a real thirst quencher, perfect for those long hot summer days. It's also a fantastic accompaniment to a spicy curry, with its slight spice kick complementing the heat of the dish perfectly. Brewed traditionally with Challenger and whole leaf hops, Maris Otter and Crystal malts, and a trace of coriander, Umbel Ale is truly a class apart.

How Does It Taste?

Umbel Ale is incredibly soft, smooth, and refreshing on the palate. The late addition of coriander creates a slightly floral aroma and a slightly spicy taste that will tantalize your taste buds. The malt mainstay of the taste slowly draws out hoppy notes, becoming slightly citrus with a slight tang of grapefruit before big sharp yeasty fangs bite down bitterly. All the while, the hint (and it is a hint) of coriander lays low and draws out the ephemeral nature of the tastes, making it a truly unique and enjoyable beer experience.

Hops Used

Challenger, Nugget, Cascade, Ekuanot – these are the hops that give Umbel Ale its distinctive taste. The subtle interplay of these hops provides a balance to the coriander and malt, resulting in a complex and nuanced beer that is easy to drink. From the spicy notes of Challenger to the citrusy tang of Cascade, every hop used in Umbel Ale is carefully selected to bring out the best in this floral ale. So why not grab yourself a bottle or twelve and experience the wonders of Umbel Ale for yourself?

    Nice quaffable beer – tried it with curry as it says it goes well with spicey food on the lable.

    It most certainly does
