A beautiful evening. In the mid-20s, with a gentle breeze. Time for some beer.
It’s Curious Brew, a lager from UK winery Chapel Down. (See www.curiousbrew.com.) Made with East Anglian Malt, Saaz and Cascade hops, and then refermented with a Champagne yeast, and given a ‘dosage’ of lovely Nelson Sauvin hops.
It’s a gold colour, and is aromatic with nice exotic hoppy notes. Well balanced with refined fruity flavours and delicious bitter hoppiness. It’s a lager with real flavour, and a hint of American IPA about it, no doubt from the Sauvin hops. I’d rate this at 8.5/10.
