I’ll tell you something for nothing, and it’s something I’ve told you before.
With this new range of beer – Automaton, Boomerang, Black Ops and now Kashmir – this little brewery from Shrewsbury is quietly becoming the one to watch.
Kashmir is a joyful hop bomb of a beer.
It begins with a smell that’s pink foam shrimps, iced gems, pencil shavings and fruit jelly.
Its a smell that you have to smile at.
The flavour is big and bold and sharp and fresh, with malts that are a supple and chewy dried fruit cereal bar coated in gloopy honey, and they’re the perfect platform for the Citra, Riwaka and Saaz hops to do their thing.
And they really do their thing.
Fizzy sherbet sweet shop fun, stinging nettles, gooseberry fool, woody resin and a good sharp grapefruit skin zestiness.
The finish is super dry and super bitter.
Kashmir is stunning.
