keg, special
This beer is certainly not for the faint hearted and most definitely packs a punch or two. Sponsored by Stewart Brewing, the recipe was created by James Hardacre, a keen and experienced home brewer, who succeeded in winning The Southern’s home brew competition.
With an extensive array of six different hops, FWP is the hoppiest beer that Stewart Brewing have ever produced. Brewed with Oat Malt, Crystal Rye.

Bottle shared at the Cad’s 10th Anniversary Tasting - CBC Clerkenwell, London. Thanks to the Scotland crew for giving me this one. Pours unclear, rich gold with a foamy, white head. The nose holds pale bread, citrus fruits and crackers. Light to medium sweet flavor with dried pine bitterness, hay, some lemon rind. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish with more crackers, white bread and citrus rind. Just fine overall.

chinchill (2905) - South Carolina, USA - APR 28, 2015
From a bottle in Edinburgh. (new and improved version says the brewery rep.) Clear copper body topped by a good head. Mild-moderate input from the Belgian yeast. Well matched hopping. Good complexity with multiple fruit notes over a bready base and a light spiciness. Very good balance and mouthfeel.

teorn88 (3585) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2014
Backlog rating. 50cl bottle from trade thanks to McNeill. It pours a hazy straw color with a s large white head. Aroma is hoppy and lightly yeasty with notes of grapefruit, kiwi fruit, citrus peel, pine cones and peppery spices. Some grains and hay. Taste is medium dry and lightly bitter and grassy, with more citrusy hops, notes of ripe apricots, esters, black pepper, bread dough, grapefruit. Finishes lightly estery and quite dry. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, very tasty, but the original homebrew recipe had more yeast prominence
