Gypsy Hill Brewing Co. Southpaw (4.2%)

Southpaw - 1Southpaw is Gypsy Hill’s Amber Ale and it’s not half bad.
Pouring a rich amber with a nice frothy head, the aroma is toffee and balsa, peaches and matchboxes.
Yes, really.
There’s a rather good toffee brioche and crumbly honey biscuit malt that feels flaky and crunchy it’s glued together by sticky honey.
And there are hops.
Lots of them.
I lost count at loads.
They’re sharp and stinging, all English woodland walks when you veer off the allocated path.
You know, too many nettles, blackberries and hazel, doc leaves, dandelions, a touch of elder.
And all this with a hip flask of freshly prepared lemonade that cuts across the beer and adds a zippy freshness as you head towards the long dry finish.
Very good.
