On tap at the black sheep. Appearance: murky rusty red with a one finger thick eggshell yellow head. Aroma: a little pumpkin spice. Some dark berries, malty with a hint of ginger and rye. Flavour: malty at first making way for some rye and some great ginger and pumpkin spice, a little hoppy too with a delightful pumpkin spice and rye finish. Quite good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle from Bradley’s, enjoyed in a thistle glass at home on a nice wintry night. Pours a ruby amber with a one finger off-white head that lasts a while before slowly dissipating, but leaves a clinging 1mm head. Lovely lacing too. Aroma is buckets of gingerbread, cake, some nutmeg and a hint of fig. Taste opens with a medium spicy sweetness, mainly ginger, before transforming into the clean, crisp rye bitterness. Overtones of blackberry too. The ginger creeps back in to leave a nice light lingering sweet aftertaste. Not too dry - they got the hops/rye balance right here. Soft smooth carbonation but good medium body. An absolute delight of a beer, probably the nicest spice beer I’ve ever tasted. Great to see such good beer coming out of such a small operation in Donegal.
