In the pub [5] – Acorn, Welbeck, Redemption, Marble, Primator

Welbeck Abbey is a brewery located in the beautiful area of Nottinghamshire. It was founded in April 2010. From the beginning the head brewer is there Claire Monk – not enough that this is one of the youngest heads of this branch in the country, it’s still on top of this is … the girl.

To Old No.7 went from there beer Porter Oak with a note in its name: Spiced Bonfire Ale.
Therefore, that I’m always willing to try to new porter or stout, the choice was obvious.

The distinct aroma of roasted malt.
Its taste is clearly perceptible roasted malt, further taste of dark caramel,
notes smoked and smoked fruit.

The next evening in favourite pub I started from beer Big Chief from Redemption Brewery.
Redemption is craft London brewery founded in 2010. For such a young brewery the number of awards and titles is impressive; look at themselves, it seems that the list is endless:

Big Chief IPA is packed with the New Zealand Kiwi hops that rather instead of citrus flavours (lemon, grapefruit) give aromas of tropical fruits (eg. Passionfruit).


Name: BIG CHIEF (India Pale Ale, 5,5% ABV)

Light-amber colour with an orange tint.
White foam, falling with lacing. Beer slightly cloudy.

Its taste citrusy (grapefruit, mandarin), tropical fruits.
Crisp bitterness, perfectly complementary to fruity body of this beer.
As for me – excellent ale!
