I think it’s a bit dangerous to use the word Special on your beer label.
You’re almost inviting criticism.
It’s a bit like me putting Ever So Groovy on my band’s record covers.
And this beer proves my point.
Terror Of Tobermory is pretty good as it goes.
It pours a nice dark amber and has a digestive biscuit, apple and damson compote smell.
You get a very nice biscuit base over which there’s more stewed fruits, a lick of honey, the slightest hint of ginger and some marzipan sugar thickness.
The hops are floral with a little dry roadside cowslip greenery that leaves a pleasant finish.
Good indeed, but special’s pushing it a bit.
