I love rye beers and this one is particularly good.
Leaping from its can a glowing amber with a big frothy head and a treacle and vanilla ice cream aroma, Reeb sits in my glass fizzing with life.
The malting is big and bold and gloopy, with lots of Daim bar praline, toffee popcorn, malt loaf, vanilla and pumpernickel.
The rye adds a rich round earthy spiciness that’s flecked with black pepper and sea salt, and if all this wasn’t enough the hops are sticky with redwood resin and woody pine nuts, along with orange marmalade, mango, lime zest and fresh green herbal leaves.
All this makes for a finish that’s long and sharp, bitter and dry but with a delightfully chewy honey background.
