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.

Hoppy nose, but unfortunately with some isovaleric acid, flowers and caramel. Clear amber color. Fruity, estety, malty taste. Good for a bitter.

Cask at the Star and Garter, Bromley. Amber pour with a white head. Bake apple, citrus and light spice aroma. Stewed apple, light bitter citrus, malt and vanilla flavour. Nice, easy going brew.

BenOver (339) - SLOVENIA - MAY 15, 2017
Pours hazy amber to golden colour with almoat no top. Aroma is absent? Slightly skunky and fishy? Expected an awfull beer, but then the taste is pronounced carbonated, a little acrid and bitter. Hoppy finish, nothing special.
