4.5% you say Wimbledon brewery?
So why oh why whilst gently sipping this brew and reading the info put forward on the tin can I not actually make out what you guys have written?
- Am I too drunk? I’d say no after two sips, though it has been a very long week
- Have my eyes just gorn generally nowadays?
- Have you just printed the abundance of information way too small?
The answer is 3.. (I hope anyway).
Also, when it came to the packaging generally it got me in a wonder as to why I didn’t particularly like it… considering I quite liked it! After a fair bit of musing I worked it out. It was the copper section around the top of the tin. Disaster stuff. Without that this pin striped packaged Red Ale would look super classy but as it is… it doesn’t.
A final thought on the external, the griffin like being rising from what I hope is a hop is great! However the regurgitation of an over sized sprig of rye is disconcerting to say the least.
Anyway, let us get the internal external.
Oh no, I’m off straight back to the tin design. Reason being is it’s such a shame that Wimbledon Brewery stuck the copper at the top of the can thus reducing the class of this brew…. Because on tasting Copper, this sucker is oooozing class!!
It’s so so soft and delicate. Super light to drink and just great. There isn’t a huge flavour hit or anything complex going on but that doesn’t matter as this is just such a tidy, smart and neat brew. Well worth a try I have to say.
Wimbledon Brewery you have done a smashing job with this American Red Ale, just have a word with the team who are in charge of the upper 20% of the tin design yeah?
