Internationally recognised beer writer Melissa Cole visited us last month to brew an exciting new speciality beer with Matthew Otley. The beer a 4.6% abv golden speciality ale was officially launched on Friday 11th June at the GWBCF in Cardiff International Arena. Melissa named the beer at the unveiling as Thai Bo, a respectful nod to its influences that inspired it.
Infused with Lemongrass, lime leaf and galangal it has been described as having the aromas of a Thai green curry in a glass. The flavours make this an ideal summer beer as the clean refreshing flavours cut right through to quench your thirst and tickle your palette, it has been a big hit also with female drinkers as they describe it as being a beer that they like to drink. We think this beer will be making a return soon as a new monthly seasonal, but if you fancy giving it a try, hurry, we have a limited amount of casks available from this single brew, so call us to secure one of the most striking beers to come out of our brewery this year.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Straw golden body, no head. Thai-like spices and herbs to the nose. Rather unusual taste of rise, curry and ginger, and some earthy malts, too. Dry hoppy ending. Very unusual, indeed. Nice, if not a great favourite. Cask, half at The Rake, London 16.07.2010.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16th July 2010. On tap at the Rake (thanks to Mario for the info). Hazy gold beer, little white head. Light palate, semi dry. Lovely fresh herbally lemon from the lemon grass is immediately striking. The galangal is there but subtle. As the beer draws to a slightly bitter hop (and semi dry) finish some lime blends in seamlessly. Aromatic tasty and refreshing beer. If it is done again I hope they up the galangal a little.
