BREWER: Stewart Brewing, Midlothian
STYLE: Pale Ale
VESSEL: 330ml bottle
Quite how you combine Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch and end up with an open chested hop popping pagan pigeon as the focal point of your packaging is beyond me. But we are where we are.
I also have to bring up the brave use of the word Radical in the name. Pretty sure the last time MOBJymi used that word I was chatting to a girl in a bowling alley in the early nineties dressed as a Ninja Turtle…. but we are where we are.
Have to say I was pushed for time a little when testing this Triple Hopped Pale. So when I turned the bottle and was told I was going to be having a Grapefruit – Marmalade – Pine – Bitter/Sweet experience I was pretty chuffed. From the description at least, this beer had a chance of being a goodun’.
Pressure was on to deliver Stewart Brewing, as a bad brew reviewed in a hurry is not going to work out too well.
Tell you what, we are darn professional over here at Muse on Booze.
Well, this is a very pleasant brew. There is an initial hit of orange and pine that is pretty intense but this Pale then softens and allows the drinker a bit of room to absorb that hit. This is then followed by a pretty intense (almost too intense actually) grapefruit finish which hangs around a long time I have to say. It’s a good beer this, there are elements I’m not too sure on and the over grapefruit and strength of this pale means not too many would be had before moving on but as said… ‘tis a good beer.
Anyway, I’m off…
