Canopy Beer Co. are based a short walk from my old Charmenko office on Spenser Road, Herne Hill (before it relocated to Istanbul).
Right on the edge of Brockwell Park, it’s a bit of London I know well and that will always have a place in my heart.
Brewed with Belgian yeast, this is a rather good little Amber Ale.
Pouring with an enormous billowing head, the smell is bread dough and spiced orchard fruits.
Taking a swig you find a sweet sticky caramel and brioche malt and a good spicy herbal hit from the hops – Saaz and Styrian Golding, if you were wondering.
But the star here is the yeast with its earthy spiced fruit loaf doughiness.
This is a fresh and zingy beer, an easy drinking beer, and I like it very much.
