Give a child a toy, and he'll undoubtedly play with it.
Give a man an experimental brew kit... and you can bet he'll brew you a beer.
Not just any beer either:
This beer has been produced with hops from America, Australia and New Zealand, but as we know it takes more than shoving loads of tasty hops into a kettle to make a good beer, so what's it like?
Well, it has a very inviting aroma; I'm getting peaches and apricots, fresh straw with a lemony twist, sweet sugars, sherbet and orange with lime... it smells damn fresh too!
The beer starts like a fresh fruit salad. It has quite a bit of carbonation to it and when it rolls over your tongue, you get a great big smack of fizzy orange bitterness, which is intensely refreshing.. and rather awakening. It has a real zing about it which really hits all the sweet spots. Intensely fruity as I said, the flavour matches the aroma very well, and I'm also getting a good sense of biscuity malt in the background. Soft, floral and dangerously easy drinking for a 75cl bottle of 6% beer. It's balanced, and while it might have a sense of subtlety and restraint about it, to the keen taster, it's a real master-class in beer production.
I don't think the brewery could have been put in better hands.
Fantastic beer, great story and overall feel about this beer, I can't wait to see what the guys come out with next.
