The third beer released as part of the Bridge Road Bar Series, where the Beechworth brewers invite members of staff from top beer bars across Australia to come up with a beer and brew it with them. The Cecil is the work of the team at Freo’s Norfolk Hotel and was designed as a Red Brewed with a combination of Cluster, Sauvin, Zythos and Falconers Flight hops, the outcome wasn’t quite as red as intended – “a lesson to be learnt for us here at BRB,” says head brewer Ben Kraus, but makes up for it with big orange marmalade and citrus hop aromas familiar to lovers of West Coast US IPAs. Unsurprisingly, those hops are back in the mouth too, with the malts playing a chewy, toffee backup role. “Damn tasty!” says Ben. Limited draught release at participating Bar Series venues.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
An excellent Red IPA. Aroma is fruity, hoppy, slightly floral and citrusy. Appearance is a bright clear red colour with a nice white head with some yellow tinge. Taste is a bit like the aroma, but more subtle: citrusy, hoppy, floral, fruity and sweet. Palate is lovely and hoppy. Great IPA overall!
