What makes it special?
Brewed for the first time in 2010 as a festival special for FyneFest, Jarl is a full on citrus experience and a cracking session beer. Jarl is single hopped with Citra, a vibrant and powerful American hop that gives the beer a very distinctive citrus flavour and aroma. Jarl was born out of an experiment with Citra, which was a rarely seen new variety of hop at the time, after our former Head Brewer Wil Wood got a tip off on its unique character and flavour profile.
Fyne Ales was one of the first breweries in the UK to use Citra in a brew and the results were fantastic. Jarl is now is our best selling beer and has won a number of prestigious awards, including being the current Champion Beer of Scotland. The area of Argyll is shrouded in Viking folklore and the name Jarl refers to the name of the Norwegian Earls (Jarls), who claimed many of the surrounding lands in the 12th century.
