Gahan Brewery - Island Red Ale
Pours slightly cloudy garnet colour with a thin white head.
The aroma is bread dough, hay, and a touch of fruit and spice.

The feel is quite full and creamy.
Taste is fairly complex, dough and hay with quite a dry finish. A hint of black pepper lingers in the dry finish.
Some hints of caramel and dark toast with a touch of cherry show up in the middle and become a bit more pronounced as the beer warms.
It's not a bad beer at all but the very dry finish puts me off a bit.

Gahan Brewery - Island Red Ale
Thin white head on a garnet colored brew.
Dough, fruit, hay and a hint of spice make up the aroma.
Full, rich, creamy mouth feel.
Slightly burnt caramel and fruit to start with a clean crisp citrus finish but that is spoiled by a pepper after taste that clouds up the nice flavors that came before.

Beer Quote of the day

Life isn't all beer and skittles, but beer and skittles, or something
better of the same sort, must form a good part of every Englishman's

— Thomas Hughes

(Englishman? Quit hogging. Beer is universal. Who cares about skittles anyway?)
