Beavertown Brewery - Bloody 'Ell

Beavertown Brewery - Bloody 'Ell

Bonus addition today as it's Canadian Thanksgiving Weekend, so I thought I'd crack this one open with the other half while she's cooking up a treat.

The can is certainly psychedelic and pretty freaky with an orange skull giving me the eyes and I'm pretty sure trying to hypnotise me to buy more Beavertown beer....it's working at the moment!

Opened the can over the kitchen sink just to be safe, but everything was blessedly smooth this time. A light citrusy smell came sweeping up with a massive hop scent that already gets the senses tingling. The first swig then gives more of the same with those powerful Citra and Amarillo hops exploding on your tongue, before a solid citrus and blood orange taste finishes just behind. The blood orange hit isn't quite as hard as I'd expected, but that doesn't take away from the drink in anyway, as I really like the huge hops that come through with that noticeable orange fruity tingling on your tongue at the end.

I can see why this is a classic, so if somehow you haven't had this already just make sure you do quick.

Happy Sunday, and cheers everyone!
