Who doesn’t love a Brown Ale? But why are there so few around? We think that the Australian beer landscape could do with some good Nut Brown Ales to fill the gap between lighter beers and stouts, so Duck’s Nuts is our contribution.

 

The grain bill for Duck’s Nuts is one of the most complex at Three Rivers. We use five different grains for this beer ranging from a pale malt all the way through to a black, chocolate malt. The great, nutty taste though comes mostly from the brown malt we use which is roasted in small batches by a Yorkshire maltster which has been operating for over 200 years. Eee By Gum... The malt flavours are complex because of this big grain bill, but look for caramel, a little chocolate and definitely a nutty and perhaps toasty taste. The hop bill is just as complex as the malt - three hops, two English and one American for a little twist and a bit of oily resin to the mouthfeel. Hopefully, though, there’s not a lot of hop flavour or aroma as they’re really there to counteract all the sweetness from the malts.
