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.

Unibroue - Ephemere Cherry
 
Pours pink with a very full and slightly pink coloured head.
The aroma is of cherry some spices and a bit of straw.
Feel is rich creamy and full.
It's quite a dry beer with a strong cherry flavour and just a touch of pepper. A solid grassy malt base and a lingering dryness which comes across as very clean.
The cherry flavour is more like maraschino than the wild cherry I was expecting. Fairly sweet.
I like this one a lot, It would be great to spend an afternoon on a patio with this.

Beer Quote of the day

I've often been asked what do you do now that you're retired?

Well, I don't have much of a chemical background but one of the things I enjoy the most is turning beer into urine!
