The Tipsy-Train Beer Blog with Buxton Brewery's Spa

Buxton Brewery - Spa

Tough Monday at work being on my feet all day, but got a nice surprise from my girlfriend who met me after work, and I decided to round things off with a Buxton Brewery Spa Special Pale Ale as my 2nd companion. This Derbyshire based brewery has got a great reputation and this 'Roman Spa' beer simply had to be tried.

Actually got a table seat on the train, so spread myself out with the other half and cracked open my can. Not as successful and smooth opening as usual for me, but quite a light aroma from the can with feint hops in the background and citrusy overtones still drifted over.

Upon first taste there was definitely a stronger hoppy hit which carried a fruity flavour to enjoy. It's still a light, zesty and pleasurable beer to drink though with little bitterness, which is sometimes a nice change from all the wacky and eccentric tastes that can swamp the market and obscure a good pale ale. At 4.1% and 440ml it's solidly enjoyable drink that won't blow you away, but that you should definitely give a go.

Train seems to be delayed as there's some renegade kids on the track, so I guess I'll catch you all tomorrow.

Cheers!
