The Latest Shipment from The Flavour Merchants

Hawthorn Brewing Company's new Amber Ale

‘The Flavour Merchants’ – aka the Hawthorn Brewing Company – are proud to announce the release their second beer, a full-flavoured Amber Ale. The Hawthorn Amber Ale follows the successful launch of the company’s first brew Hawthorn Pale Ale with a third release still promised for later in the year.

The Victorian based Hawthorn Brewing Company is the dream of three friends – Peter Willis, Hamish Reed and Darren Milo – on a quest to bring flavoursome brews to the thirsty masses. This latest release looks like it will bring them closer to their goal.

Hawthorn Amber Ale is a rich malt flavoured ale, presenting itself as dark auburn coloured potion with hints of red.  Described as “more British than the Queen’s corgi’s” Hawthorn’s Amber Ale is meticulously brewed to the true Northern English style.


The inclusion of the world famous base malt – Maris Otter, ensures a lovely rounded body, whilst a small addition of Chocolate Malt in the grain bill delivers a warm bittersweet roasted caramel flavour. Mild English hops balance the sweet malt nicely, and plenty of dry hopping after the fermentation infuses a floral and spice aroma.
