Dark Revolution

Dark RevolutionAnother new brewery to us, Dark Revolution brewery from Salisbury. We’ve three of their bottled beers for you. Love the tasting notes on “Bone Idol” their barrel aged Imperial brown ale: “Pale, Rye, Crystal and Roasted malt. Oats. Wheat. Magnum hops. Long stretch in freshly emptied bourbon barrels. What more do you want? A cigar and a taxi?” There’s also “Lighten Up” – a Helles Lager – “Thought lager was bland and tasteless? Think again. This Helles-style lager balances full malt flavour with a crisp, dry finish. Lager as it should be.” and last but by no means least, their “Voodoo” – smoked chipotle porter, “Cherry wood smoked and roasted malts meet spicy chipotle peppers for a complex but balanced beer.”

Verdant Brewing

Verdant Brweing Co

….And yet more cans, this time from Verdant Brewing Co all the way down in Falmouth. The word ‘Verdant’ means lush, green with grass or other rich vegetation. Like hops maybe? ๐Ÿ™‚ We have two of their beers. “Light Bulb” Extra Pale Ale, 4.5%abv. As pale as a 100W light bulb but as juicy as an IPA. Session-able, quenching and totally addictive. Biscuity malt base with a hint of sweetness all drenched in fruity/dank hops. And then there’s “Headband” Pale Ale, 5.5%abv. We’ll let the brewery describe this one as we’ve never dealt with tasting notes with ‘stinky cheese’ in them before ๐Ÿ™‚ : “Glowing orange colour. A beautifully balanced beer where the pale, crystal and Munich malts really help amplify the hops juicy qualities. Layers of flavour: tropical fruit, citrus fruit, stinky cheese, caramel – all working together. Bitter and sweet. Lush.”
So…there you go then!

Fallen Brewing Co – cans

Fallen Brewing Co cans

Starting off 2017 with something new. The good people at Fallen Brewing Company have now got a shiny new canning line at the brewery, so it’s bye-bye to bottles and hello to some very pretty new cans. The beer inside is the same high quality stuff you know, love and drink gallons of. The new packaging should see the beer stay in tip top condition for longer on the shelf so that you get it in the best condition possible. They’ve started off with two of their beers, “Platform C” and “New World Odyssey” but eventually their whole range will go into cans. We’ve tried these over the holiday period and it’s a big thumbs up from us.

Odyssey Brew Co

Odyssey Brew CoTHE WAITING IS OVER! The last bottles from Odyssey Brew Co for 2016 have arrived – and what an army of belters they are.
There’s eight in total so we’ll split ’em into two groups. First, the hop monsters: “San Diego UnSession IPA” – amped up San Diego session IPA,More malt, more hops same fruity, juicy little devil with a complex, bitter finish. “Stimulant IPA” – Stimulating pale ale. Citra, Mosaic, Chinook Simcoe and Sorachi are used copiously. “Dream Brother V2” – an American wheat beer, vibrant and hazy it carries the aromas of Simcoe, Citra, Rakau and Mosaic hops through to the palate. Last but definitely by NO means least “Devil May Care” – This is not a beer of balance, this is a beer in which the massive New World hop additions dominate and are meant to dominate. Huge juicy tropical aromas lead to a powerful, deep and resinous tropical/citrus kick.

Odyssey Brew Co…..and now to the darker side. “Righteous Rye” – The rye brings a drying bitterness to the beer and accentuates the orange, grapefruit and tropical notes provided by the all American hop combo used. “Latte Stout Export Edition” – Odyssey Brew Co‘s “Latte Stout” was the beer that started it all for us at AleselA. Had a pint of it in Newcastle and knew instantly that we HAD to get this brewery’s beers up to Scotland. The ‘Export Edition’ has more coffee, more lactose, more malt – more everything in fact. “Grievous Angel” – an Imperial Oatmeal Brown Stout, and why not! This version is brewed with cacao, vanilla and coffee. and “Imperial Zombie Blood” – Odyssey’s final release of the year is something very, very special. Itโ€™s big, itโ€™s red and itโ€™s juicy, packed with Simcoe, Mosaic and Rakau at every stage of the brew. These fruity hops are accentuated by the sticky, red, malt base.
