Pouring a warm gold with a soft fluffy head, Hollyrood smells of lemons and grapes and straw.
The malting is demerara sugar coated oaty biscuits, honey and a little boozy heat that tempers the sweetness and stops everything becoming cloying.
On top of this there’s a bunch of hops that are all grapefruit and lime, lychee and green grape skins.
This perhaps doesn’t sound like the most exciting drink in the world, and it’s not.
But it’s a very well made beer that I would happily happily make a regular.
