Category 12 Brewing Simplicity Ale Review Category 12 Brewing – Simplicity Ale Review

The category 12 brewing has taken a step back from their usual big, Belgian-inspired beers to make something a little lighter. The Simplicity Ale. From a bomber bottle this beer pours a colour of light straw and is topped with two thick fingers of dense and lacing head. From the beer comes a light, citrus infused aroma with a light floral note. A pleasant euro-hop tone adds a bit of extra oomph to this light and seemingly sessionable brew. The body is light and the flavour sessionable in a citrus, and lightly hopped way. Brewed with spelt grain a unique, somewhat wheat-like tone comes across leading into the extremely dry finish. A mellow bitterness lingers behind with the remnants of the spelt and citrus notes. The Simplicity Ale is not a typical beer that you will find from other breweries as it is a unique Category 12 take on a Belgian Saison.
