As much as I love the idea of Abbeydale providing drinking vessels made of Sheffield steel, it really didn’t lend itself to a good drinking experience and so, after a photo shoot and a coupe of mouthfuls, I decanted this new version of Voyager into a glass.
This latest iteration of Voyager is crammed full of woody tobacco bines, hedgerow undergrowth, sappy redwood, lemon sherbet, grapefruit zest and mandarins.
There’s a big bunch of steely herbal leaves as well, and all of this is underpinned by a soft and sticky caramel and wafer malt that adds a gentle but much needed sugar syrup sweetness to the edges of this bold and bright bitter hoppy hit of a beer.
Watch out for a full interview with the brewery coming soon.
