Another interesting beers tested in a pub Old No.7.
Today breweries Buxton, Beavertown, Acorn, Colchester. Welcome to the relation.
Our local brewery from Barnsley – Acorn, is not idle. Another their limited beer went to Old No.7.
This time it was Black IPA named Thunder Struck.
Colchester Brewery is a brewery from South-East England, founded in 2011 by experienced professionals from the brewing sector. The first beer released in February 2012.
A characteristic feature on the labels of their beers is a viaduct from Victorian times – Chappel Viaduct. It has 32 arches, has 346 meters long and runs the monorail.
On his honour the building in which is a brewery named Viaduct Brewhouse.
From this brewery in the pub Old No.7 was present beer Red Diesel, which I decided to taste.
Another interesting beer comes from Beavertown Brewery, founded in 2011 in London.
The beer is called Quelle and is representative of the Saison style.
Beers in this style are pale golden colour or pale orange, with a high foam, if unfiltered: are cloudy, are sparkling and have a wealth of aromas and flavours due to the presence of fruity esters, they are otherwise very refreshing.
I have already had the opportunity to try here Saison beer style: it was Saison L’été from Burning Sky Brewery.
And yet (drinking the next day), two unusual beers from Buxton Brewery.
This truly craft, fond of experimenting brewery lies at the foot of the Peak District in Derbyshire.
What can I say, I tasted their two beers and… I fell in love.
Buxton Gold. In the brewing of this beer uses hops:
- Amarillo (American – for bitterness and aroma)
- Liberty (American variety – has a spicy profile (mainly cinnamon), gives notes of resin and slightly sweet. Used for aroma)
- Nelson Sauvin (hop from New Zealand – the name comes from Sauvignon Blanc grapes. Hops has a strong fruity flavour and aroma of freshly crushed grapes, gooseberries, some sense in it passion fruit, tangerine and grapefruit)
The second beer from Buxton is Axe Edge IPA.
We have in it following hops:
- Amarillo (see above: Buxton Gold)
- Citra (American hops used for aroma of tropical fruits and citrus)
- Nelson Sauvin (see above: Buxton Gold)
I must admit that, especially the last three beers, impressed me (from Buxton and Beavertown).
Extremely original and tasty.
Let someone now tries to say that the English beers are boring😉
