Jacobsen Velvet Ale has an aroma similar to white wine and champagne but has its roots in the beer world in terms of taste and refreshing character while containing minimal hops to avoid any bitterness.
It is a clear, golden beer with a fine sparkling head. The aroma has notes of citrus-like acidity, passion fruit and a distinctly winey character. The taste is initially sweetish with a hint of acidity but almost no bitterness. The body is round, mild and subtle. The aftertaste is short and fresh.
The bitterness content of Velvet Ale is roughly one fifth that of a normal pilsner. At the same time, the beer is enhanced with rich notes of tropical fruits from the hop’s natural oils.
