Style: Darwin’s Origin is an eclectic mix of hops from across the world but this blend produces a beer that offers something to everyone. Crisp, tart, fruity and refreshing but also with a juicy malt background.
History: The brainchild of Debbie here at the brewery, Darwin’s Origin is the most recent addition to the Salopian core range in both cask and bottle. It was brewed to celebrate Shrewsbury’s most famous son Charles Darwin. Like most additions to the permanent range of beers, Darwin’s started off as a monthly special and the reaction of our customers and staff saw it replacing Abbey Gates.

tombyars (1790) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 1, 2017
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) on the 8th January 2017. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear pale amber in colour with a thin white head. Strong green hop notes present in the aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt delivers a full bodied digestive biscuit base with strong juicy pink grapefruit flavours unleashed in the mouth. Fresh dusty hop resins give a good counterpoint to the malt element and add complexity to the balanced bitter aftertaste. Finish is hoppy with tart citrus pink grapefruit still evident in the mouth. This is a decent session Bitter and I can see why people highly rate it

Vladivostok (491) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2016
Cask. Liked this. Mid-amber with plenty of citrus in the profile but a good malty backbone prevents it from dominating and becoming too astringent. Very more-ish and sessionable.

kwik-lime (2117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2016
Cask at the Prince of Wales in Farnborough beer festival. Great citrus aroma, nice balance of caramel malt and some dry hop with good citrus in the taste. Good bitter.

ndburns (190) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2016
500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours a clear brown-amber with a minimal off-white head. Aromas of floral and grassy hops, malt and summer fruit. Taste is similar, sweet and fruity up front, with dry floral hoppy notes, only a touch of bitterness, despite the hop flavours.
