COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.
Colour: Copper
Hops used: Cascade, Galaxy, Nelson Sauvin, Saaz
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.

MrHangover (4349) - 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.

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.

SlackerMads (3283) - DENMARK - JAN 23, 2015
Cask. Light hazy chestnut brown with a small off white head. Generously hopped; flowers, citrus. Some wooden notes, light toffee, grain, brown sugar. Hops dominate all the way through to the finish, with quite a bitter punch mid taste. Mild sweetness, long medium bitter finish. Sure is a hoppy bitter. Ok.

JohnandDenise (18) - Runcorn, Cheshire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2014
Must admit I am a fan of big hoppy brews, and this is not a big hoppy brew, but nevertheless I love it. This beer is packed with loads of fruit, not to citrusy, but plenty of gooseberries and mango. A fine brew, refreshing and particularly moreish.
