Cloudwater continue to impress with their Autumn Range, and this little easy drinking Red Ale is particularly good.
Sitting in my glass a deep amber, the aroma is peaches and redwoods, lemon and melon.
As you take a swig you find a complex malt bill that gives you sticky toffee, brown bread, biscuits and burned sugar glazed waffles, honey and crackers and a warm earthy spiciness that creates a strong body over which the hops are sharp and herbal, green and leafy, a dash of lime and a splash of lemon, some zingy zest and a pithy dryness.
All this and a finish that’s bitter sweet and superbly dry, Cloudwater currently don’t seem to be able to do any wrong.
