Round of kolf anyone?
The early Dutch settlers in new Amsterdam now known as new york didn’t just bring their advanced brewing skills. They also brought ‘kolf’ with them – a ferocious precursor to the civilised game of today. Eventually, it was banned on account of the damage it caused to windows, limbs and pride. Luckily, there was ale for consolation.
We envisaged a beer so refreshing and zesty as a lemon drizzle cake. With our love for citrus we wanted to show that life can give you more than lemons or lemonaid.
ZESTY CITRUS WITH SLIGHT BITTERNESS & A MALTY FINISH
A distinct citrus- sweet flavour with a hint of raspberry. More bitter and less acidic than you’re your average orange, the blood orange peel gives our pale ale that little kick.
Grapefruit adds a mild tangy tropical sweetness and slight bitterness to our pale ale and makes it a crisp and highly sessionable beer.
Native to the new amsterdam area sumac is a must have botanical in our pale ale. This exotic spice has a citrusy, well-balanced tartness that gives our pale ale an extra layer of flavour.
BREWED WITH BLOOD ORANGE, GRAPEFRUIT & SUMAC
In search of citrus we couldn’t ignore sumac. Native to the New Amsterdam area it is a must have botanical for our Pale Ale. This exotic spice has a citrusy, well-balanced tartness that gives our Pale Ale that extra layer of flavour.
Originated as a horticultural accident, grapefruit has a distinctive and slightly bitter overtone. It adds a tangy, mild, tropical sweetness to our Pale Ale, which makes it a crisp and highly sessionable beer.
Bloody Blood Orange
There si just something special about the blood orange flavour. The smell is intoxicating in a nice way and the intense sweetness is balanced by a breeze of bitter and sour. It gives our Pale Ale that little kick.

ABOUT BOTANICAL BREWING
Want to find out more about brewing with botanicals?
The Lowlander approach to beer and food pairing is simple: beer is even better with food and food is even better with beer.
The zesty citrus flavour with a malty finish of our Pale Ale perfectly pairs spicy Asian dishes. But also grilled or fried gourmet fast food is a good choice; the elevated carbonation levels, alcohol content and citrusy flavours cleanse the palate.
It’s time to expand your horizons if you tend to only drink beer straight from the bottle. There’s an exciting world of beertails waiting to be explored.
The Lowlander beers are all about bravery and botanicals, so are the Lowlander beertails. They combine the best of both worlds: liqueur and beer – win win. The result is a smooth, brave blend of beverages, perfect for anytime, really.
