New Seasonal Cask Beer – Koru

What’s in the name?
Koru is a spiral shape based on the appearance of a new unfurling silver fern frond. It is a symbol in Māori art where it symbolises new life, growth, strength and peace. ‘New life’ very much epitomises the month of March with the start of spring. Why a Māori symbol? Koru is a nod to the family (Hodgson family at Great Newsome) connections to New Zealand, with Uncle Al being a proud kiwi.

What does it taste like?
A 4.7% golden beer, Koru is a perfect balance of fruity hoppiness and malt (we grow malting barley here’s the story). Brewed with a blend of traditional British, Northdown and New Zealand, Wai-ti whole hops give this excellent balance. The light malt base is combines with heady peach and apricot aromas, with a well rounded bitterness.
