A beautiful beer fermented with WLP644, un unusual yeast that provides tropical flavours with a slight tart note that works really well in this beer. It is a high attenuator too, creating a dry, sparkling beer. High carbonation in the sample i had, the bottles have continued carbonating slowly over time apparently. A great beer IMO. Yeast info...

What's this Simpsons imperial malt all about? Sort of amber malt?

IMPERIAL MALT

A massive malt with depth of colour, flavour and aroma.

Beer Styles:
Light Ales, Brown Ales, Porter and Stout
Malt Flavour:
Biscuit Dry Sweetness (Honey/Plums), Bread Crust
Usage:
Up to 20% in Light Ales to enhance flavour, Up to 50% in Brown Ales & Porters, Up to 80% in Dark Beers & Stouts

Our Imperial Malt imparts a full-bodied flavour and biscuit aroma. The warm brown notes it adds to the wort intensify the depth of colour, without compromising enzymic activity.

I was put onto it by truman’s zephyr, a lovely London brewed amber ale that’s all orange peel pithy bitterness.

It’s a nice rich malt, munichy, I guess that adds a touch of colour and depth of flavour. I like it a lot, used it in a few brews that were all reasonably good. Including a zephyr clone attempt.

I've got some, but not used it yet. About 50ebc I think, so will add a fair bit of colour.

It’s quite red though at 200g didn’t add much colour to the tropical
My zephyr was a lovely copper colour, used much more

I wouldn’t use biscuit with this yeast
I love it in a bitter but can’t see it marrying here
Not used amber
I’d be tempted to leave both out

I would use Munich but don't have it. Vienna might work well.
