COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.
Colour: Copper
Hops used: Cascade, Galaxy, Nelson Sauvin, Saaz
Style: Darwin’s Origin is an eclectic mix of hops from across the world but this blend produces a beer that offers something to everyone. Crisp, tart, fruity and refreshing but also with a juicy malt background.
History: The brainchild of Debbie here at the brewery, Darwin’s Origin is the most recent addition to the Salopian core range in both cask and bottle. It was brewed to celebrate Shrewsbury’s most famous son Charles Darwin. Like most additions to the permanent range of beers, Darwin’s started off as a monthly special and the reaction of our customers and staff saw it replacing Abbey Gates.

Cask at GBBF. Clear dark orange with a bubbly white head. Aroma is strong orange and lemon. Body is medium, smooth. Taste is grapefruit, watery fruits…ultra-drinkable. Woah this is a good cask ale. I wouldn’t call it a bitter but, whatever it is, it’s good.

Pikkio (11) - ITALY - JUN 8, 2014
an incredibly balanced ale with a medium body and a cloudy Amber/Brown colour, a very nice aroma and a complex and satisfying taste. There are hints of fruits, flowers, caramel, some grassy hops and sweet malts. It’s incredible how much is going on in this beer and how well everything is balanced.

Beerheart65 (1000) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 31, 2014
Clear amber, slight sparkling, big off-white frothy head that leaves bit lacing. Mild aroma (having flu) is crisp with spruce and grass, malt also, bit soapy. Light to medium body, light palate, slight bitterness that stays to drying finish, sweet fruity notes also, floral notes. Easy to drink, tasty.

500 ml bottle. Clear dar golden colour, dense white head. Sweet aroma of fruits, berries and toffee, some woody notes. The flavour is sweetish malty, with citrus, berries and a nicely dry, a little woody, bitter hoppy finish. Very tasty.
