Would you believe that even though this beer has been around for quite a long time I’ve never tried it before?
And what’s more, I rather like it.
Umbel Ale pours a very nice bright orange with only a simple ring of bubbles for a head and smells of green leafy herbs.
But being brewed with coriander it would, wouldn’t it?
There’s a really good and rather delicate malt that has a nice caramel stickiness and burned sugar bitter sweetness along with some sea salt and brown bread crusts.
The mix of Challenger and Fuggles hops gives a super leafy crunch, all bitter crab-apples, blackberry leaves and hawthorns, and the coriander adds a spicy sweet herbal edge.
The finish is very dry and very bitter and lasts for ages.
I like Umbel Ale a whole lot.
