Even gloomy days are great for a nice beer outside.
Today’s tipple is a milk stout brewed in England and winner of the silver medal in the Dublin Craft Beer Cup 2016. What is a milk stout? The style only describes one thing, that there has been an addition of sweet and unfermentable lactose.
Colour: Deep brown/black. Medium fluffy brown head.
Aroma: Roasted malt, soft coffee aroma, light hint of citrus and caramel.
Palate: Medium bodied with a creamy texture. Oily, liquorish texture, earthy chocolate, herbal bitterness with a long lasting sweetness.
This beer is a velvety experience totally recommended for condensed milk fans. It pairs perfectly with deserts and creamy cheese. 6/10
Today’s beverage comes from North Cornwall an area with majestic landscapes and excellent water for brewing beer.
This brewery started up their business in 2012 and as stated on their webpage:
“We approach all our beer design in the same way, drawing on the vast gamete of styles and techniques used worldwide. We then use this as a foundation to build upon, but that doesn’t always mean straying too far from the original, more evolution than revolution.”.
Colour: Deep Gold. Medium foamy white head.
Aroma: Fresh tropical fruits, pineapple, mango, mandarin and a hint of peach peel.
Taste: A first explosion of tropical fruit aroma invites you to a cereal taste on the palate leading to a perfectly light balanced sweet bitterness.
This is definitely a well rounded session IPA perfect for summer. Easy to drink with a velvety character and a long lasting delicate hop bitterness.
