Smooth red ale. Cakey malt with a nice balancing hop bitterness. Super drinkable.

Rooster's Brewing Co by Baby-Faced Assassin

Caoimhin D. is drinking a Baby-Faced Assassin by Rooster's Brewing Co at Jolly Butchers

I've tried hard with this highly regarded brewery but I don't get it. This time somewhat cloyingly sweet, confused hops, and a bit thin.

Clouded Minds Brewery by LUPPOL

Fresh 'n' tasty pale, lots of Cascade & Summit as advertised, but nicely balanced. Really enjoyed this.

Saltaire Brewery by New World Red

In good condition, a very fine example of this style which seems hard to nail. Super malt character, offset by a pleasing hop blend.

Tiny Rebel Brewing Co by Cwtch

Right proper red ale. Aromatic, fruity but not overly sweet, with plenty of balancing hop bitterness. Smooth, just like the cask version.

Gun Brewery by Red Ale

This was lame from an otherwise impressive producer. No head, nondescript malty sweetness & vague bitterness. Been on too long I suspect.

Brew By Numbers by 18|05 - Farmhouse - Rye Saison

Caoimhin D. is drinking a 18|05 - Farmhouse - Rye Saison by Brew By Numbers

Aroma promised something - but there was nowt. Just a lifeless diluted apple/lime juice with no discernable body. 6.2% evaporated.

Hop Stuff Brewery by Four Hour Session

Caoimhin D. is drinking a Four Hour Session by Hop Stuff Brewery

Too cold, thin, harshly bitter, no apparent malt & an odd savoury overtone. Their worst beer by miles.

Volden by Juniper

Caoimhin D. is drinking a Juniper by Volden at Leyton Technical

Their most interesting Ale, to me like a rye. Not sure what Juniper tastes like, but I get a not unpleasant whiff of weed.
