The last beer that I had by the brewery was their Skull Splitter and I loved it.
I have to say that I love this too.
This beer is such a lovely deep mahogany wood red and it smells fruity with a slight metallic tang.
In fact it smells a little like tools left out in the rain.
Drinking this beer is all about mouthfuls of Scotland.
Does that sound weird?
What I mean is that you get shortcake biscuit and tattie scones hiding in a tin in the background, covered in rich peppery toffee it acts as a wonderful support to the piney redwood resins that taste like walking through red squirrel territory.
There’s a leafiness that’s more bracken than hedgerow, dry and delicious and more-ish, it has a spiky sharp quality like beery thistles that stab at your palate.
This beer is super.
