Blimey, there’s a lot of toffee in here.
And a set-your-teeth-on-edge metallic twang too.
Crimson Pirate is a dark amber Bitter with a weird wire wool and plum aroma, like soft fruit on a mechanic’s work bench.
The malts are hefty slabs of toffee and prunes, apple cores and bran flakes, all served on a tin tray.
And the hops are autumnal, red and crisp, with lots of hedgerows full of brown twigs and leaves.
But although there’s lots of good things going on in here, I can’t escape the weird wiry hum that has given me the same feeling as rubbing aluminium foil against my fillings.
