Red ale, 4.1%

A hoppy red ale, with well controlled malt characteristics, and a fresh floral finish. The appearance of this beer is what you’d expect, a tan to red with fine white head (but little retention). The immediate flavours are from the malts, which give a rich sweetness without dominating the palate. This then yields to a spicy hop finish, with the American hops (Yakima valley apparently, hence the name), giving only a touch of bitterness. Aftertaste is a little peppery, with the malt sweetness remaining in the undertones. The net effect of all of this is a clean beer, which packs plenty of flavour without feeling sticky of overwhelming. An excellent ale.

Overall score: 7.5/10
