Skew Sunshine Ale begins its nurtured life when we carefully sow the barley seed during early spring in the light chalky soil of ’Skew Field’. The south-facing slope of the field ensures that every hour of sunshine is captured to produce a plump golden grain. Grain so admired by the Institute of Brewers that it has been awarded the ’Best Spring Barley in the South-East of England’.

Alphadelic (2164) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 13, 2009
A pretty bullshit nose. Cereals and metal really. Smells and looks a lot like piss. Too much horrid bitterness and stale cereal to really make anything else of it. Not a fan.
