When life's deck of cards seems predictable, toss in the Joker and watch the table turn. Introducing the "JOKER AF" – the rascal of beers crafted for those who love to have the last laugh. A cheeky nod to its alcoholic sibling, this Alcohol-Free IPA is nothing short of a game-changer. Vegan-friendly, gluten-free (tested below 20ppm), and wickedly hoppy, every sip challenges the notion of what an alcohol-free beer can be.

Thiolised yeast takes the stage in this act, unveiling a fruit flavour symphony that dances harmoniously with the beer's bitter-sweet bite. The deck is further stacked with a blend of hops like Cascade, Chinook, Citra, and Mosaic, ensuring that each mouthful is a winning hand.

Gaze upon its yellow hue with a light haze reminiscent of a summer's day. Let the aroma whisk you away to tropical paradises, complemented by notes of cedar, caramel, and a citrusy zing. And as it touches your palate, the biscuity undertones paired with fruity, herbal, and piney notes ensure this Joker is no jest.

All of this flavour is wrapped up in a 440ml can, ensuring that even when you're holding the Joker, you're holding a winning hand. The JOKER AF promises a chuckle with every sip, and even better? It guarantees you'll be smiling the day after. Here's to the rebels, the jesters, and those who rewrite the rules - this one's for you!

Understanding Gluten Free

Gluten, found in wheat, barley, rye, and oats, is avoided in gluten-free drinks to cater to those with coeliac disease or gluten intolerance. In the UK, drinks labelled 'gluten-free' must have less than 20 parts per million of gluten, aligning with European Commission Regulation (EC) No. 41/2009 standards for safety.

Tasting notes

Williams Bros The Joker Tasting Notes:

Appearance: A radiant yellow hue with a soft, light haze that invites the drinker in for a closer look.

Aroma: A tropical medley is the first to greet the nose, bringing forth lush memories of sun-kissed beaches and exotic fruits. This is followed by the woody charm of cedar, a hint of rich caramel sweetness, and a zesty duo of orange and citrus that adds a refreshing spark.

Taste: A multi-layered flavour profile takes the centre stage. The foundation is built on a biscuity malt backbone, reminiscent of freshly baked bread. Fruity notes, evoking thoughts of juicy orchards and summer fruits, play the middle notes. Herbal undertones give depth and complexity, followed by a piney resonance that evokes the serenity of evergreen forests. The finale is a delicate dance of bitter-sweet, a testament to the beer's hoppy character and its delicate balance.

Mouthfeel: Smooth with a medium body, the beer gracefully slides over the palate, leaving a lasting impression of its rich tapestry of flavours.

Finish: A long and lingering finish with a pleasant bitterness, like the memory of a well-told jest.

Overall Impression: JOKER AF is a masterclass in achieving harmony between opposing elements. Bitter meets sweet, tropical greets woodsy, and all the while, the essence of the beer remains clear – it's a Joker with a serious commitment to taste.

Food Pairings

    Williams Bros The Joker Food Pairings:

  • Starters: Vegan spring rolls drizzled with a light sweet chilli sauce or fresh guacamole served with crunchy tortilla chips.
  • Main Course: Grilled tofu steaks seasoned with herbs and a touch of lime, or a colourful mixed vegetable stir-fry with hints of lemon and ginger. These choices not only match but elevate the beer's citrus and herbal undertones.
  • Side Dishes: A zesty quinoa salad with mango and avocado or roasted sweet potatoes with a sprinkle of rosemary.
  • Desserts: A refreshing citrus sorbet to echo the beer's tropical notes or a light mango and passionfruit tart for a sweet finish.
  • Snacks: Lightly salted cashews or almonds, or perhaps some spiced popcorn that teases the beer's hoppy character.

Serving Suggestions

Williams Bros The Joker Serving Suggestion:

  • Glassware: Enhance your enjoyment by serving The Joker AF in a pint or IPA glass. This choice highlights its aromatic tropical notes and presents its appealing golden color splendidly.
  • Temperature: Ideal when served chilled, between 6-8°C, to fully appreciate its complex taste and refreshing qualities.
  • Occasions: Perfect for any setting, from summer BBQs and relaxed weekend brunches to any moment you desire a non-alcoholic but deeply flavorful beer experience.
  • Tips: A gentle roll of the can before opening is recommended to reintegrate any settled components, ensuring you enjoy every aspect of its rich flavor profile.

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. It was here that 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 the adventure of reviving this almost-forgotten ale. The result was "Fraoch," a beer that paid homage to Scotland’s rich brewing heritage.

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

From these humble beginnings, the brewery grew in both size and reputation. Today, Williams Bros. Brewing Co. stands as 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 itself.
