Metalman Windjammer- New Zealand Hopped Beer

IT’S BACK! – WINDJAMMER

It’s July so we thought we would bring back Windjammer!

Windjammer is a pale amber beer, hopped exclusively with lots of New Zealand varieties. An antipodean extravaganza, lightly carbonated with a soft bitterness from a combination of Southern Cross and Pacifica, leading into tropical fruit flavours of pineapple and mango, with the wonderful addition of grapes from Nelson Sauvin hops – a delightful summer beer!

 Metalman Windjammer

Appearence: Deep amber in colours with a persistent white head.

Aroma: Tropical fruit aromas from the new Zealand hops, with caramel notes in the background.

Taste: A luscious, full-bodied mouthfeel with toffee and caramel flavours, leading into tropical fruit flavours of pineapple and mango, with the wonderful addition of grapes from Nelson Sauvin hops.


Malts: Lager, Ale, Cara Munich 2, Cara Munich 3, Cara Amber

Other: no funky stuff in this one, just water, malt, hops and yeast.

Bitterness: medium-high – 4/5

Sweetness: medium-low 2/5

Pairing: Windjammer will drink well with roasted or BBQ’d meats, which will accentuate the caramel malt flavours, while the bitter finish will cut through greasy foods to leave the palate cleansed and ready for more.

Fun Fact: A Windjammer is a class of Tall Ship. We first brewed this beer in 2011 ahead of their visit in July 2011. Can you believe that was 6 years ago?

This one is only available in kegs at the moment, but hey you never, we might can it soon.
