JAMES BOAG’S WIZARD SMITH: THE DINNER ALE
The easiest way to match your kitchen creations to the right beer is to mirror the flavours of the food with those found in specific beers. It’s important to ensure that the flavours are of a similar strength so that one does not overwhelm the other. The good news in this case is that pale ales pair wonderfully with just about any cuisine, so you will find it hard to stray too far from the path with James Boag’s Wizard Smith.
Wizard Smith is crafted with quality imported hops, Superpride, Pride of Ringwood and East Kent Goldings, and is an ESB or ‘extra special bitter’, a style known for its balance and interplay between malt and hop bitterness. The light caramel pour, perfumed with floral, lavender, spice, citrus and grassy scents open up a world of flavour-pairing options, so don’t be afraid to hone in on one flavour element in the beer and make it the hero flavour of your meal.
