Brewster’s Pale Ale (5%)

What a super little bottle of beer this is.
It opened with a lovely hiss, poured with a smell of sweets and sugar candy, and is sitting in front of me all bright and sunny and wanting to be drunk.
As for the way it tastes, well, I’ll need a minute to take it all in.
It’s really rather good you know.
First up is a wash of maple syrup and pine resin which is quickly followed by a runny caramel laced with grape skins.
I’m also getting a big helping of peach flesh and I like that a lot, it’s all thick and pulpy and pleasing.
Using the usual descriptive words about grapefruits and lemon just doesn’t do this beer justice.
Yes those things are there but there’s such a depth f flavour at work here that it really moves this pale ale onto a completely different level.
And the finish?
It’s a huge blast of fresh flower petals, dandelion leaves, green stems and dry and sexy garden leaf litter (bet you never thought you’d see those words put together in the same sentence) that leaves the most lovely and lingering peppered afterglow.
I really need to try some more Brewster’s beer.
If they’re half as good as this I’ll have found another brewery to fall for.
