Autumn beer selection – We have selected a few choice beers which we think you should try this autumn. It’s a beer review, like Top Gear but with beers.
Wild Beer Company
ORIGIN: Somerset, UK
Created with a passion for flavour and a lust for hops — this is a frisky, fragrant pale ale. Whilst consistency is (rightly) the benchmark of most beers, Wild Beer Company have gone Wild and thrown away the rulebook on this one. Every six months, they source some of the most interesting hops from the northern and southern hemispheres, which means two hop harvests and two excitingly different hop profiles giving you the same beer but different every batch.
Vedett Extra White
Vedett Extra White is meant to be cloudy and while this highly refreshing Belgian white ale may be hard to see through, it is a beer you can enjoy with all your other senses! Revel in the refreshing citrus aromas with touches of coriander and flavours of orange and banana.
ORIGIN: San Francisco, California.
BEER TYPE: dark beer
With deep black colour, a thick, creamy head, rich chocolate, toffee and coffee flavours, and full-bodied smoothness, Anchor Porter is the epitome of a handcrafted dark beer. A blend of specially roasted pale, caramel, chocolate, and black malts, along with our top-fermenting yeast, creates complexity without bitterness. The brew is hopped at a high rate, and naturally carbonated. The result is dark in the glass, but surprisingly light on the palate.
Bristol Beer Factory
ORIGIN: Bristol, UK
BEER TYPE: IPA
This American-inspired IPA is powerfully hopped with Cascade, Centennial and Simcoe hops packing it with tropical fruit aromas and flavours. Attractively amber in colour, it is a big strong beer to balance all those hops.
Harbour Brewing Company
ORIGIN: Cornwall, UK
BEER TYPE: IPA
Harbour Brewing Co’s Antipodean IPA is called so because its an IPA style beer using pale malts and Galaxy and Victoria secret hops from the antipodes – Australia and New Zealand. The galaxy hop was named because they were thought to create flavours that are ‘out of this world’ and create pleasant citrus and passionfruit flavours and aromas whereas the Victoria Secret hop gives a longing piny flavour that compliments the galaxy hop beautifully.
