Tyne Bank launches new seasonal beer Dark Exposure
Tyne Bank Brewery has launched the third of its seasonal dark beers, Dark Exposure, to offer something different for summer drinkers.
The Byker-based brewery’s 4.2% “dark pale ale” aims to be both light and hoppy, but dark in colour, with roasted barley giving it aroma and body.
“Named with a nod to the art of photography, where use of light and colour for effect is hugely important, this light bodied, hoppy beer features all the characteristics of a pale ale, but with a twist,” said the brewery’s Sam Capper.
“A contradiction in terms, our new black pale ale, Dark Exposure, turns convention on it’s head with the use of a dehusked, roasted barley to add aroma, colour and body yet retain a light, smooth flavour.
“Inspired by an increasingly popular American beer style, Cascadian Dark Ale, this beer combines its dark appearance with the punchy US hops – Cascade and Centennial.”
Dark Exposure will be available from July until the end of September.
