Multi-platinum selling Manchester band elbow designed their ‘build a rocket boys!’ beer after a series of tastings at Robinsons Brewery in Stockport, a stone’s throw from elbow’s Manchester heartland.
Band members sampled a range of Robinsons’ ales to shortlist their preferred style of beer, taste and colour before deciding on a golden ale with a rich rounded body, smooth bitterness, subtle tang of malt and fruity aroma. elbow’s ale is a premium session bitter at 4.0% ABV

On cask at The Haymarket. Pours a golden colour with a decent white head. Aroma of biscuity malt, yeast and caramel. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation and a creamy mouth-feel. Quite dry to finish. Not bad. Lingering Weetabix and mildly bitter. Very drinkable with just the faintest hint of apple seed to finish.

Cask by handpump at State Bar, Glasgow (11 Jan 12) - brown ale with a creamy off white head and malty and fruity aroma, dry biscuit with toffee aftertaste, leaves a bitterness at the back of the throat
