Your favourite Star will be shining at a lower abv!

Adnams Sole Star 2.7% abvSole Star Pale Amber Ale is Adnams' most popular lower abv style and it'll soon be changing to an even lower alcohol content. Sole Star will be reducing its abv from 2.7% to 0.9%. A drop of 1.8% abv might not sound like much, but it’s tricky to achieve. Our brewers have trialed many different recipes and fermentation methods to make sure we can achieve a low alcohol content without losing the fresh citrus flavours that Sole Star customers love. Adnams Head Brewer, Fergus Fitzgerald, comments, “To achieve an even lower abv for Sole Star, our aim was to maintain as much flavour as possible, but to brew the beer with less resulting alcohol. To achieve this, we’ve used malts that are naturally low in sugar, we’ve added layers of hops, which help support the aromas and flavours, and we also restricted the fermentation. This has enabled us to develop Sole Star further as a true low alcohol beer.” This means that Sole Star will be even more accessible to customers wishing to reduce their alcohol consumption, but who also enjoy the taste of a flavoursome beer. Sole Star will still be shining brightly, it's just going to be a little lower over the horizon! The new version will be launching on Friday 7th April in our stores and online.
