Madrigal Brewery – Wheatear North Devon Wheat Beer 4.3%
This is a golden coloured ale, with a sharp passion fruit and mango/geranium aroma. It has a light taste of sharp fruit.
This ale bears no resemblance to a German weissbier. It is a light ale with a fruity aroma but lacking a strong flavour. It is brewed with a hint of coriander seed and ginger but is unlike a Belgian white beer.
This is a dark chestnut coloured ale, with an initial strong sweet chocolate turning to a strong coffee aroma, smokey note. It has a strong roasted coffee taste with a short bitter taste and Smokey notes.
This is another of the Gran Riserva series from Peroni. Pura Doppio is a golden coloured ale, with a sweet aroma, with vanilla and sweet biscuit notes. It has a stronger hop bitterness from the start, carrying through to the finish and aftertaste, with a sweet malt backing.
This is a dark red chestnut coloured ale, with the aroma notes of malt and prunes. The taste is rich in malts, plum and prune notes, with the warming backing of barley wine. This is a warming ale equally suited to winter and summer.
Brewed by the London Brewery this is a stable mate of the famous London Pride.
This as a new ale from Peroni, adding to its Gran Riserva range. It is a red chestnut colour and a toffee vanilla aroma. The taste is malty but not a barley wine taste like the Malto Doppio, with a bitter hop finish. A pleasant strong ale.
This is brewed by Perino, now owned by Japanese Brewers Asahi Breweries.
This is a golden coloured ale with an aroma of fresh green hops and resin notes. It has a strong hopped bitterness, with green wood notes, running through to the aftertaste.
This IPA is not as strong as some and its well hopped bitterness avoids excessive citrus notes. It is described by the brewery as a session IPA. This is a stable mate of the excellent lager from Brooklyn.
