Coach House Brewing Co. Post Horn (5%)

Post HornThis is a “Premium Ale” brewed in Cheshire that doesn’t excite me very much I’m afraid.
Pouring a light straw colour with a frothy cream head, the smell is bruised apples and hay bales.
There’s a fruit shortcake malt that comes with sultanas, some bran flakes and a little toffee burned at the edges.
The hops are a bit indistinct, a light, almost gone out, hedgerow thing, but there’s just not enough presence to really give you much joy.
As a result the finish is watery and thin, sticky sweet honey but with nowhere near enough bitterness.
Not great.

    Never had anything much good from Coach House, either in bottle or in cask. But they’re still going after 20-odd years, so they must be doing something right.

    I disagree with your “expert”–I ENJOYED posthorn bitter as did my fellow walkers and disappointed when my local pub stopped selling it.Can you let me know the pubs in Cheshire that have it in stock.

    • We all taste things differently.
      One man’s meat is another man’s poison and all that.
      Sadly I can’t tell you what pubs have it on the bar, but I’m sure if you contacted the brewery via their website they’d tell you.
      Cheers.
