Jonathan Adnams' brewed a total of 40 bottles of j.P.A. to celebrate his 60th Birthday. This 5.5% abv Pale Ale has been brewed with East Anglian Pale Ale Malt and Rye grown from Jonathan's own Rye fields. The hops used are Jester and Amarillo which were added late to the brewing kettle and used to dry hop the beer. It has a citrus orange nose and is dry on the palate. This unique beer would make a great Christmas gift for the person who has everything, and with a best before of 28th February 2017, it’s certainly one to enjoy over the festive period.
