Thornbridge Brewery Shelby (5%)

The official beer of the “Peaky Blinders” television series, Shelby is a decent little IPA.
Though more Pale Ale than India Pale Ale, it is reportedly brewed to reflect the beers of the inter-war period that the TV show is set.
There’s a solid malt body of Weetabix and brown bread, honey and caramel, plus a little background saltiness from the yeast.
The hopping brings a lick of lemon zest and some hedgerow greenery which adds a snap of colour to the clean crisp finish.
A beer brewed for Peaky Blinders fans rather than beer fans, this is still worth watching out for when it hits the shelves.

    You mean it’s not unbelievably sweet? Blimey.

    Bloody virus has left me with no sense of smell/taste. Not brilliant given all I want to do is drink beer…
