COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask and bottle: Special - Spring 2011.
NOTE: Some of the production was allocated to Kernel brewery, where it was bottled as The Kernel London Brick Red Rye Ale with Dark Star and Redemption overprinted on the label.

A special brew amongst friends. Brewed for the 21st Aniversary of the Brighton Beer Fest, as requested by Evening Star landlord Matt Wickham. Brewed at Redemption brewery, with many talented friends: Mark Tranter from Dark Star, Evin O’R, from Kernel, Simon S, from Zerodegrees, James from Brodies, and Angelo and Steve from BrewWharf. This is a big hopped rye ale. Shades of red/amber, over nearly 30% of the grist being Rye. Then hopped in a DarkStar/Kernel/BrewWharf way, with a ton of Simcoe, Centennial and Cascade. Some 18ks went into 10 uk Brewers barrels. Read more about the beer at Mark Tranters blog: http://darkstarbrewing.co.uk/marks-blog/a-great-result-from-white-hart-lane/

Thanks to Evin and Toby for this unexpected treat! Cloudy amber red beer, short lived creamy tan head. Slight soft palate, moderate carbonation. Fresh hops on the nose. Creamy smooth malt with a whisper of lacto caramel sweetness. Trace of rye spice. Fresh piney hops turning to a little marmalade and then a bitter grapefruit kick. Some orange citrus underneath. Semi dry smooth finish with long lingering bitter aftertaste. Superior!

harrisoni (13156) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2011
Cask gravity at Planet Thanet BF 2011. Clear mid brown with thin off white head. Grapefruit American hop aroma. Unbelievably good. Its like a really good American style amber ale. Good drinkability. Some spicy rye and some lovely bitter fresh hop. Good biting grapefruit. Just beautifully drinkable with juicy fruits in yhe mouth and a finish that lives and lives. Best beer of festival so far

Leighton (10419) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2011
Cask at The Bree Louise, London. Dark gold pour with a thick, foamy eggshell head. Beautiful nose, piney hops and grapefruit come piercing through. Damn, this is really, really good. Flavor holds toasty malts, honey, caramel, huge bitterness of pine, grapefruit, tangerine and earth. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sticky, dank hop finish, lingering pine, earth, and lighter citrus. Some faint sugar maltiness helps balance things out. Wow. Excellent beer.
