Beer Tasting: Beavertown Bloody 'Ell
I hadn't had this beer for quite a while, so decided to revisit now that a fresh batch came out.
This really is a great beer. While the citrus character is not much more intense than you might find in a well constructed, juicy IPA, the citrus character is mighty. Lots of orange, tangerine, also some melon and papaya. The juicy sweetness is balanced out almost perfectly with nips of orange rind and oily pine. There's an interesting citric note in the aftertaste.
Beavertown have really been in the groove for a while now, and this beer is further evidence that they brew some of the best beer in London.
