COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask and bottle: Special - Spring 2011.
NOTE: Some of the production was allocated to Kernel brewery, where it was bottled as The Kernel London Brick Red Rye Ale with Dark Star and Redemption overprinted on the label.

A special brew amongst friends. Brewed for the 21st Aniversary of the Brighton Beer Fest, as requested by Evening Star landlord Matt Wickham. Brewed at Redemption brewery, with many talented friends: Mark Tranter from Dark Star, Evin OR, from Kernel, Simon S, from Zerodegrees, James from Brodies, and Angelo and Steve from BrewWharf. This is a big hopped rye ale. Shades of red/amber, over nearly 30% of the grist being Rye. Then hopped in a DarkStar/Kernel/BrewWharf way, with a ton of Simcoe, Centennial and Cascade. Some 18ks went into 10 uk Brewers barrels. Read more about the beer at Mark Tranters blog: http://darkstarbrewing.co.uk/marks-blog/a-great-result-from-white-hart-lane/

Tasted from the bottle, bought @Dram Shop, Sheffield, on 04/11/2012. Pours of muddy reddish brown color, with a lovely creamy head, which quickly dissapears. Aroma is extra fresh, having floral, citrus, grapefruit and a bit of a pine notes. Taste is delicious, having many different citrus fruits upfront, following by some tropical notes mixed with a good sweet character. Aftertaste is longlasting and mostly zesty&piny, surprisingly just a tiny bit bitter. A well balanced, delightful beer. Recommended. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tropical fruit on the nose courtesy of all the simcoe. Some resin. Picking up a little rye. The malt character comes through in the mouth with tropical fruits and pine. Lovely stuff
