Cloudwater DDH Pale review by cider loverrr, Davin

Coudwater DDH Pale Ale

Now im a fan of craft pale ales as usually the ddh IPAs are sometimes on the bitter side for me. 

But with a strap line like “bold & punchy” i thought id give it a go. 

Lovely thick pour, perfectly hazy, just as you would expect from cloudwater, although a slight orange tinge. Bright white head that disappeared quite quickly. 

Is that orange tinge giving subliminal messages and giving me a tangerine on the nose?  Add to that a bit of pineapple and even apple. 

The smoothness smothers your tongue. A really gentle bitterness starts at the tip of the tongue and slowly moves backwards as it develops. Its a long lasting bitterness, but its so light. Almost creamy, slightly peachy with the soft furry skin attached. 

Eating it with a curry, it had no problem cutting through the strong flavours and they worked really well together. 

Who’d of thought cold beer and a hot spicy curry would go so well?!

The people trying to preserve the idea of real ale are just trying to preserver an idea of their youth. Just maybe in 40 years time i will be an even grumper old man complaining about how craft beer is the real beer!
