Beer Profile: Admiral Tiberius by Junction Craft Brewery

Posted on Posted in Beer Profiles

ABV 5.2% IBU 47

 

It’s back to Junction Craft Brewery for a treat in this week’s beer profile. I’m a simple man with simple tastes for the most part. My favourite beers tend to be English styles. Admiral Tiberius is an English Pale Ale featuring Admiral hops.

Junction Craft Brewery is one of the few breweries in Toronto’s Craft Beer scene that brews a regular rotation of UK style beers. Flagship beers, seasonal, and one-offs all dabble in various UK styles and many of these styles aren’t being brewed by Ontario Craft Brewers.

Admiral Tiberius pours a nice clear and pale golden colour with an ample white foamy top. The aroma is fruity and floral, typical of English yeast varieties. The flavour draws you in with a subtle biscuit malt up front. As the malt flavour fades, a hint of fruitiness slides in with a dry bitter finish.

I really enjoyed my Admiral Tiberius. At first sip and sniff, you think you’re in for a nice pale ale but it just keeps getting better. Admiral Tiberius has a well-balanced bitterness and the flavours are spot on. Admiral Tiberius is one beer I won’t pass on, whenever I’m in Junction Craft Brewery.
