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/

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2011
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of madmitch76. Pours amber with a slight haze and a dense beige head leaving a pretty lacework. Fat, juicy and somewhat greasy peachy hops. Solid body, caramel, a little roast, and loads of dusty, peachy hops. A solid bitterness. Very well made. 141111

Bottle from the brewery. Poured dark red/brown with little head. Excellent malt base with lots of rye flavour with a hoppy finish. Excellent.

Leighton (19188) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2011
Cask at The Bree Louise, London. Dark gold pour with a thick, foamy eggshell head. Beautiful nose, piney hops and grapefruit come piercing through. Damn, this is really, really good. Flavor holds toasty malts, honey, caramel, huge bitterness of pine, grapefruit, tangerine and earth. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sticky, dank hop finish, lingering pine, earth, and lighter citrus. Some faint sugar maltiness helps balance things out. Wow. Excellent beer.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 20, 2011
Bottle at Craigs. A dark brown beer with a lacy light tan head. Aroma of leather, coffee and caramel. Flavours of coffee, passion fruit, dark malts and barley. Foamy mouth-feel with a fair CO2 prickle from the moderate carbonation.

Bullit (4488) - Burgos, SPAIN - AUG 14, 2011
Bottle @ JohnMurdoch. Amber colour, off-white head. Nose is pine, grapefruit, some malts. Flavour is malty, fairly bitter pine. Ok stuff, but a bit watery and one-dimensional.

Bottle from Beermerchants.com. Spicy hoppy aroma. Dark medium brown colour, good head. Hoppy flavour. Quite smooth. Slightly disappointing copy of a classic American IPA.
