O’Hara’s Barrel Aged Leann Follain 8.1% & Winter Star 5%
Joy to the brewers! The festive season is in full swing at O’Hara’s, with the launch of their latest Winter Star brew. Winter Star is a spiced rye pale ale bursting with flavours of cinnamon and orange zest, with a natural spiciness from the addition of rye malt. A festive favourite in its own right, Winter Star also appears alongside other favourites in the O’Hara’s Christmas gift pack, where it lines up beside their other well-established favourites – the Irish Pale Ale and the Irish Stout.
Hot on the heels of Winter Star is the seventh edition of O’Hara’s much-loved, multi award-winning Barrel Aged Series. Incorporating some of the finest techniques in Irish brewing, this rich, full-bodied stout is aged in oak Irishman Whiskey barrels from Walsh Whiskey in Bagenalstown for three months, where it picks up the flavours of whiskey and oak casks. After ageing, the beer is then bottle-conditioned to give a gentle carbonation, bringing out the best of both the stout and the whiskey.
This is one to enjoy slowly over your Christmas dinner…
