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.

Heritage Black Currant Rye Beer

A short lived, thin tan head which leaves a light lace on a deep garnet red coloured clear beer.
The aroma is fairly faint, I found some dark berry and bread notes.
Feel is quite full and dry.
The taste starts with a tangy bitter currant taste followed by some grassy rye bread tastes. I found a faint earthiness and a touch of brown sugar as well.
The finish is quite dry with a lasting berry-citrus tingle.
I enjoyed one of these but I would not want to try more than one at a time, more of a special treat beer than a session beer but the dryness was quite appealing.

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?)
