Good Monday at work after a busy weekend down in Plymouth, lots of physical labour, but also put my noggin to use as well. My girlfriend also swung by the @beercraftbath taproom after work to see my face...she's a sucker for punishment.

Following from a Davin recommendation, this can was a bright and vibrant yellow with the famous teddy bear on the front and the beer name surrounded by psychedelic colours, really eye-catching.

Aboard the train it was a poor can opening again, but I was still rewarded with a smell that was really light and citrusy with airy hops coming through, very fresh. Then the taste...and I was really pleasantly surprised. For a red ale I was expecting too much of a malty or bitter side for my liking, but it was actually a very smooth and gentle taste. There's certainly a light bitterness and soft malty background to the drink, but the strong hoppy and fruity punch to it is really enjoyable.

Have to say this was a fantastic train tipple and I can see why it is such a classic, if you haven't had one already make sure you have a nice, cosy 'Cwtch' as soon as you can.

Hope you had a good Monday and catch you tomorrow.

Cheers!

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.
