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.

Big-bubbled small white head. Clear amber. Pleasant malty and fruity hoppy aroma. Medium bodied, watery. Malty, bitter, dry.

Cask. Golden ale with a slight haze. White thick head. Smells of tangerines and fresh orange. Hint of fresh sweet grapefruit. Taste is fruity. Tangerine, gooseberry, honey and kumquat. Really nice. Like a sweet jam, with a bitter kiss.

500ml. No yeast at base, assuming not bottle-conditioned. Pours clear amber, thin white head. aroma: fruity hop. Taste: well balanced, fruity lingering hop. Mouthfeel: quite syrupy, lingering hop. Overall: First class beer. Well brewed, fruity and caramel taste..

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2017 Lovely fruity tarty flavour. Nice hoppy aroma.Strange mixture of hops and malt.Caramel and biscuit hints. Chestnut colour. Deceptive bite on the palate. Really refreshing and will drink again.

Wspaniale piwo pachnace perfumami kobiecymi, kilka chmieli, prestizowy zatecki, moj ulubiony Nelson Sauvin i Galaxy. Piekna piana o slimakowym wykonczeniu, spora i bardzo trawala, mocno zbita. Wyglad to jasny zolty kolor z lekka mgielka metnosci. Pachnace i smaczne piwo, z goryczka poterzna i wyraznym zaznaczeniu wszelkich profili chmielnych na jezyku,. polecam

Dark amber, white head, nose is lemon grapefruit citrous, grainy malt, touch toasted malt. Taste is a lightly toasty malty bitter with a kick of citrusy hops. Touch of pine in too. Grapefruit and lime rind on finish.

Cask. Pour is amber with a thin head, aroma is light fruity. Taste is bitter, earthy, minimally floral. Very nice

MrHangover (4617) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear dark blonde beer with a minimal amount of off white head on top, consisting out of big bubbles. Aroma is moderately malty, decent amount of some grassy, leafy hops and a crispy, citrussy note. Flavor is medium bitter, quite hoppy and fresh. Thin body, light moutfheel and very faint and short bitter aftertaste. A very easy going session beer.

Towey1989 (2947) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2017 Cask at The White Star, Stoke (Titanic) a clear pale amber colour with medium off white head. Aroma of tangy lemon, orange, peach, maybe apricot, some caramel, a hint of herbs and slight spicy hops. Taste again of tangy lemon, orange, apricot, some peach, slight caramel, a hint of herbs and subtle spicy hops. Light bodied and a slight oily texture. A dryish, tangy, spicy hop bitterness in the finish. Hoppy which I wasn’t expecting, with a citrus tang and a hint of sweet malts. Good.

mr_h (5644) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - FEB 7, 2015
Cask by hand-pump at The Raven, Glasgow - clear golden amber, good creamy off-white head, grassy, spiced aroma, excellent lacing, grassy, spicy, easy to drink
