In the realm of craft beer, the quest for a non-alcoholic brew that doesn't compromise on flavour has led to remarkable innovations, among which Williams Bros Caesar AF stands out. This alcohol-free Lager/IPA hybrid is a masterclass in brewing, offering the depth and complexity expected from a full-strength beer, with the added benefit of being nearly alcohol-free.

Brewed using traditional techniques and a carefully selected blend of hops and malts, Caesar AF delivers a robust hop aroma and flavour profile that rivals its alcoholic counterparts, combined with the clean, refreshing character of a lager. The use of specialty malts provides a solid foundation, ensuring the beer maintains body and texture, often lost in non-alcoholic variants. The hops are chosen not only for their bittering properties but also for their ability to impart a spectrum of citrus, pine, and tropical fruit notes, creating a multi-dimensional taste experience.

The brewing process for Caesar AF is meticulously crafted to reduce the alcohol content without sacrificing the beer's integrity. Advanced techniques allow for the retention of essential hop oils and aromas, ensuring each sip is as satisfying as the last. The result is a non-alcoholic Lager/IPA hybrid that is both refreshing and full of character, suitable for any occasion where beer is desired but alcohol is not.

Whether you're a seasoned beer enthusiast or new to the world of non-alcoholic craft beer, Williams Bros Caesar AF offers an exceptional drinking experience that bridges the gap between traditional and non-alcoholic brews. It's a testament to the creativity and dedication of modern brewers to provide inclusive options that cater to all preferences.

Tasting notes

Williams Bros Caesar AF - Alcohol-Free Lager/IPA Hybrid Tasting Notes

Appearance: This non-alcoholic lager/IPA hybrid showcases a vibrant amber hue, topped with a dense, frothy head that leaves elegant lacing along the glass, inviting you to dive in.

Aroma: The nose is struck by a blend of traditional lager crispness and hop-driven IPA aromas. Expect zesty citrus and pine from the IPA side, complemented by clean, grassy notes typical of a lager. Tropical undercurrents such as mango and passionfruit add complexity to the scent profile. 

Taste: The taste offers a unique marriage between the light, refreshing qualities of a lager and the robust, hoppy character of an IPA. Initial citrus and grapefruit notes give way to a more subdued, crisp maltiness, typical of a lager, with slight hints of stone fruit in the background.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium-bodied with a smooth texture, this hybrid maintains a lively carbonation, enhancing its thirst-quenching properties. It finishes with a less pronounced dryness than a typical IPA, appealing for another sip.

Overall Impression: Williams Bros Caesar AF represents a pioneering achievement in alcohol-free brews, merging a lager's and an IPA's distinct qualities into one seamless beverage. Its complex flavour profile, marrying hoppy bitterness with clean, refreshing lager notes, ensures a satisfying and multi-dimensional drinking experience. Perfect for those seeking a lighter, alcohol-free alternative without sacrificing taste.

About Williams Bros.

The Tale of Williams Bros. Brewing Co.

In the heart of Scotland, the story of Williams Bros. began not with a grand brewery but rather with a family-owned homebrew shop in Glasgow. A fateful encounter in the 1980s set the stage for one of Scotland's most innovative breweries.

A woman walked into the shop one day with a curious proposition. In exchange for help translating an old Gaelic recipe into a brewable formula, she would share with them the ancient recipe for "Leann Fraoch" (or "Heather Ale"). This brew, steeped in legend and history, was said to have been enjoyed by the Scots since 2000 B.C.

Seeing the potential and intrigued by the challenge, Bruce Williams, aided by his brother Scott, embarked on reviving this almost-forgotten ale. The result was "Fraoch," a beer that paid homage to Scotland’s rich brewing heritage.

Fraoch's success sparked a flame of inspiration. Williams Bros. began a journey of unearthing and reviving other historical Scottish ales. Each beer told a tale of ancient Scottish traditions and tastes, from the spruce-infused "Alba" to the elderberry-flavoured "Ebulum".

From these humble beginnings, the brewery grew in both size and reputation. Today, Williams Bros. Brewing Co. is a testament to innovation, dedication, and a deep love for brewing. While they have expanded their range to include contemporary recipes and styles, their heart remains rooted in the stories and flavours of Scotland's past.

In every sip of a Williams Bros. brew, one can taste not just malt and hops but the legends, landscapes, and lore of Scotland.
