Myrica Gale, also known as Bog Myrtle or Sweet Gale, is an ingredient that was commonly used in brewing throughout The British Isles before the popularity of hops. It's leaves and branches give a distinct spice and bitterness and, luckily for us, it's grows in abundance close by, in the marshland of Shapwick Heath, near Glastonbury.
Battle Flute has been brewed with water steeped with bog myrtle branches,
boiled with it’s leaves and fermented with our Fermhouse cultures,
so you can expect a subtle acidity and fruity esters,
alongside spicy and herbal notes.
All of these flavours have been balanced upon a relatively sweet,
golden base beer, with a touch of smoke and for a beer of 7.2%,
it's dangerously drinkable.
