6 new beers debuting at Beerfest Asia this year

Adnams Broadside (6.3% ABV)
Exhibitor: Applehops 

This full bodied British beer is brewed with pale ale malt and First Gold hops. It’s got hints of conserved fruit and fruit cake. We think it tastes like licking maple syrup off bacon. Yum!

Young’s Double Chocolate Stout (5.2% ABV)
Exhibitor: Applehops

This decadent drink is a combo of pale ale and crystal malt, chocolate malt, Fuggle and Golding hops, real dark chocolate and chocolate essence. Not too sweet, though.

Blue Sky Brewery FNQ Lager (4.4% ABV)
Exhibitor: Vespucci & Sons

A 100% preservative-free, bright Australian-style lager. The hay-like German Hallertau hops give it its floral aroma, and it has a dry malty finish.

Thistly Cross Cider – Whisky Cask (6.9% ABV)
Exhibitor: Gan Teck Har

This dry Scottish cider sees six months inside a Glenglassaugh cask. As a result, it has an initial taste of a gentle whiskey, followed by a distinctive flavor of oak.

Palmbrau Das Original (5.2% ABV)
Exhibitor: Stuttgart Blackforest Boutique S-Café

Known for its specialty beers, the traditional brewery in Epping, Germany produces this naturally cloudy, light Pilsner-style lager made from organic malt and hops.

Engel Export Gold (5.4% ABV)
Exhibitor: Stuttgart Blackforest Boutique S-Café

This label features a strong, lingering malt body with a subtly sweet tasting note. It’s also pleasantly bitter and light.
