Barrel aged beers have become increasingly popular in the craft beer fraternity and by beer aficionados the world over. Beer aged or served from wood is not a recent phenomenon by any means. In the past, beer was kept in wooden casks and vats until the advent of first aluminium and then stainless steel casks.
The big difference between that and the barrel aging technique is the use of barrels from another drinks industry to add different character to a type of beer, sherry, bourbon, scotch, rum, wine and other barrels have all been used to great effect. Part of the art of barrel aging is creating beer that has both the character of the barrel and the character of the original beer.
Young's have melded together the character of a strong American ale, heavily toasted oak barrel and Rum to create a triumphantly aromatic and complex beer that suits contemplative drinking studying the myriad of overlaid flavours and aromas.
What does American ORA Taste Like?
Young's ORA pours a deep ruby red with a lovely creamy fluffy head. Oak and deep toffee caramel dominate the aroma of this beer, there are hints of rum that promise further delights. On the palate this beer has a complex array of flavours. All at once it is malty, has a strong vanilla and oak character and has a subtle sweet rum character that over-arches the beer and holds it all together. It is delicious.
