The Ship Inn Brewery Indian Summer Pale Ale (4.8%)

Indian Summer Pale AleWriting about something, whether it be beer or food or music or anything, sometimes means having to say things that are negative.
It doesn’t make me happy to write a bad review, but then it doesn’t make me happy to buy something and be disappointed with it either.
So, here we go.
This is not a good beer.
It may be micro brewed at The Ship Inn, Northumberland, and when drunk fresh from a cask in the pub it might be OK, but this bottle is just a badly made home brew.
A Pale Ale with a frothy head but a smell that’s closer to lemon washing up liquid than anything edible, there’s a droopy sweetcorn and fudge malt and some weak and feeble watery lemonade hops.
Sugary, slightly citric, but altogether flimsy.
I poured this away.
