Pirate Life Port Lager, 355ml Can, ABV 4.5%
A super clear and bright yellow lager with a tight, fluffy white head that leaves pretty lacing all down the glass. It’s kept simple and clean, combining the sweetness of the Vienna and Pilsner malt with herbaceous, earthy and spicy flavours from the Spalt and Perle hops, finishing super dry and encouraging the drinker to return for more of its thirst quenching goodness.
Pirate Life Mosaic IPA, 355ml Can, ABV 7%
A kaleidoscopic journey through tropical flavours. Somehow, Mosaic finds a way to impart every delicious flavour you ask of hops, all on its own. Backed by a clean, light malt bill it’s the beer equivalent of a fruit punch juice box. The Mosaic IPA is quite light on malt profile, allowing the hop to shine, there’s a “super late” hop addition mainly into the whirlpool, making it a lot juicier and leaving only a mild bitterness.
Pirate Life Açai And Passionfruit Sour, 355ml Can, ABV 3.8%
The nose is passion pulp driven and clean, picked lemon, raspberry sherbet, each bubble bursting to release a suggestion of the tartness to come. Palate strikes fresh, lemon rind, stone fruits, tight acidity, a whisper of wheat malt leads to a clean, dry finish. Perfection!
Pirate Life OG Stout, 355ml Can, ABV 5.8%
The mouth is full of chocolate, like every mud cake you ever scoffed, rum and raisin, cocoa nib, hot chewy continental loaf. Espresso like bitterness fades in time with a stylistic dry finish. Oats here play the part of the youngest sibling at a family get together, they help to mediate and smooth things over.
Pirate Life Pale Ale, 355ml Can, ABV 5.4%
The brief Pirate Life gave themselves for their flagship beer was that it should be able to be sent to any bar in San Diego and to stand proudly alongside the many great Pales produced in, and around, the west coast of the US. The schematic for a West Coast Pale Ale is bucket loads of big US hops, full malty backbone and a characterful yeast. That is what this Pale Ale is all about.
