Wylam Brewery Bróðirblóð (6%)

Brewed in collaboration with Northern Monk this is a Red Rye and Juniper infused Nordic Ale.
Personally, I don’t care what they call it when it tastes as good as this does.
Pouring a deep cherry red, the aroma is honey and gin, clean and crisp and invitingly sweet.
Taking a swig you find a big earthy pumpernickel malt, some toffee biscuits, a little runny honey and a hit of green herbal hedgerow hops.
And then there’s the Juniper that wanders all over the beer adding a deliciously clean gin fruitiness, crisp and clear and as dry as a bone, it makes for a long satisfyingly bitter finish.
Super.
