Beavertown are fast becoming one of my favourite breweries and I am always on the look-out for more of their beers to drink. Over the past few weeks I’ve been able to grab a couple of their more limited releases so thought I’d note down my thoughts on each of those here. They do not disappoint!
Bloody ‘Ell | Beavertown
One of my favourite beers this year, this blood orange IPA is another fantastic release from Beavertown. At 7.2%abv it’s not exactly a session beer but the flavours make it incredibly easy to drink! The nose is full on citrus, orange, grapefruit and hops. The taste is of deep orange peel and the hops come in late with a sweet, tart like finish. A fantastic beer.
Earl Phantom | Beavertown
A fantastic lemon Berliner Weisse sour infused with bags of lemon zest & juice and then hopped with fresh Earl Grey tea. It shouldn’t work, but it really does! Brewed at 4.5% this beer is an ideal session beer and is hugely refreshing. It pours like a cloudy dark lemonade with loads of lemon and tannins on the nose. It opens with a bitter lemon taste, tangy mouth feel with light carbonation. The finish is sweeter, like limoncello and hints of the tea tannins linger. It tastes a bit like an alcoholic San Pellegrino limonata.
Quelle | Beavertown
A dry hopped saison by the guys at Beavertown brewed at 4.1%abv. This is a really light, refreshing beer with a lot of fruit at the forefront of the aroma. It pours light straw in colour with a frothy, white head. The taste is primarily lemon zest, clean citrus and the hops come through toward the finish, which is pleasantly bitter with grape notes and some white wine notes. This is a great summer beer and yet another top notch offering from a great brewery.
