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.

Cool Beer - Stonewall Light

I should never have taken this off the shelf. No head on a very light amber colored brew with lots of lace and there is where it ends.
Clear bottle = skunked. Behind the skunk, (which is not a good place to be), is just a hint of something. It might be a bit of citrus or not.
Mouthfeel is quite creamy if you can get by the taste.
My word! If you're going to spend all that money to have a custom label put on a beer you're better off spending less and put just a plain label on a dark colored bottle. As the Kingston Trio said way back when: 'When will they ever learn."

Beer Quote of the day

I'd like us to deliver a little message to all the men still out there who think it's the '50s, and coming home simply means watching television with a beer.
