COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & bottled; Regular.

Southpaw is disarmingly punchy. An amber ale with a mouthful of malt and hops, it comes out with fruit, citrus and refreshing balance, backed up by a corner of bitterness.

SilkTork (5888) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2017
Day 8 of the Honest Brew Advent Calendar. 330ml brown bottle, unfiltered. As with all the others, this is hoppy. At this point I have to accept I bought from the wrong place for my taste in beers. I would have liked more traditional Christmas beers - barley wines, old ales, some Belgian Christmas Ales, etc. Instead they have put in hop forward beers which are not my thing. Still, it's fun to have a surprise beer advent calender! (Though the beer surging everywhere yesterday was bloody annoying!) Anyway, back to the beer. There's some tannic notes from use of crystal malt. There is not a lot here for me to like, but it's not too offensive.

The aroma is full of hops, malt and wet clothes after some hard rain (very weird). The color is like amber...duh it's an amber ale. The taste is full of hops, malt and small notes of toffee. Decent but not impressive although I'm looking forward to taste some more stuff from this brewery.
