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!

First whiff was a light coffee one with a light sweetness just behind, but you could tell there was something goid on it's way. My following swig was a thick coffee and chocolate taste that you could tell was just packed and full with quality. At the end was a sweet berry finish that just took the edge of the stout being too heavy and balanced...a perfect touch.

First smell is that classic floral and feint tropical one, very light. The following swig had that nice fruity flavour on a very lightly hopped delivery, but I just didn't get that blueberry hit. There was a subtle dab at the back of the mouth, but I could really barely notice it and was expecting a lot more punch. I'm not a huge blueberry fan, however I was interested to see what this can would offer....unfortunately, I'll be waiting for that blueberry beer experience.

The can has the classic Polly's drip on top of a luscious flowery background. First smell is a rich coffee and almost chocolatey vibe with a tantalising raspberry essence to finish. The following taste was a lot lighter than I expected, but still had a certain fullness to it...the bonus was a lot stronger raspberry hit that was really well balanced.
