TYNE 9

3.9% ABV HAND CRAFTED BLACK LAGER

Tyne 9® is a black lager and this has caused some confusion with drinkers’ expectations. It will not taste or present  like a dark version of a fizzy pint of keg lager. Tyne 9® is a traditional lager beer, more akin to a Munich Dunkel lager or a Schwartzbier. De-husked dark malt has been used sparingly to give the colour and introduce some coffee notes as delicately as possible, a small proportion of medium kilned grain adds maltiness; it is these flavours and the colour that convince some that it is a light stout or porter; however those tastes are also desirable in this style of lager and are intentional – we are delighted that this cask lager has created so much healthy discussion and interest.

 

Tyne 9® is best served in its presentation glass to deliver a black and white pint sensation, and allow the drinker to celebrate the football heritage and theatre; from Milburn to Shearer and on to present day; of the magnificent Newcastle United Strikers’ shirt and number.
