Mallinsons Brewing Co. Transpennine Brown Ale (6.2%)

Brewed in collaboration with Pictish Brewing, I could drink this all evening.
It’s a big fruity, nutty Brown Ale with a lovely alcohol warmth and a big hoppy hit.
The beer pours a deep conker red with a creamy little head and smells of plums and honey and garden borders.
The malting is thick and round and rich, all gooey brown sugar syrup, walnuts, treacle tart and shortcake, it sticks to your sides and is pushed that little bit further by the boozy brandy snap punch.
The hopping is full of nettle tea and hedgerow greenery, lemon zest and a hint of aniseed that adds a bitter woodiness to the long sticky finish.
