As King, duty requires you to find good in any situation. Complicated matters require time for reflection. Time for an ale worthy of a king, or queen such as yourself. This beer mimics a classic dessert – royalty cake – which is made with almonds, vanilla and cardamom. What news from the North? It’s similar to an English bitter, but with an extremely exaggerated malt body. Secret plans shall reveal how this is achieved to expand your future kingdom. With an abundance of flaked oats and barley, and an army of Golden Naked Oats, which is held dear by Scotland… And the trouble with Scotland is it’s full of Scots! Toasted almonds, vanilla, and fresh ground green cardamom should drive your enemies South. If we can’t get them out, we’ll breed them out!

SRM = Standard Reference Method. This is a measurement method to calculate the colour of beer where 2 SRM is super pale yellow and 40+ SRM is pitch black.

IBU = International Bittering Units. Another measurement, used to determine the level of bitterness in the beer. Something like a standard light American lager has about 8-10 IBUs, and a super hoppy double IPA can have 90+ IBU.

ABV = Alcohol by Volume.
