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.

Saeglopur (1696) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - OCT 10, 2014
Bottle from AlesByMail.co.uk.
Clear, amber body, with a medium, frothy, light beige head, that dissipates quickly.
Aroma is floral, fruity and sweet, with citrus, tangerine, some berries, caramel, herbs, grass.
Taste with about the same aromas, but with a dominant, herbal bitterness
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation and it finishes bitter, dry, with herbs, grass and some fruity, citric notes.

Good. Nice citric and bitter, herbal hops, balanced by caramel notes. Overall nothing special and not a beer I would often drink, but surely a pretty beyond average Bitter.

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.
