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.

Headstrong Munich Lager

Thick off white head, Dark amber beer.
An aroma of flowers, grass, and citrus with hints of honey and chocolate.
The initial taste is citrus and grass, quickly followed by a nice combination of chocolate, coffee, molasses, and honey. Some berries come through as it warms slightly.
Berries and (predominantly) citrus linger nicely in the aftertaste.
A much fuller flavour than any mainstream lager, almost ale like, compared to most lagers. It shows you what a lager should be, and is in many parts of the world.

A great summer beer. I will buy this one again.

Headstrong Munich Lager

Thick, clumpy white head on a dark amber colored beer.
Aroma of citrus and hay with a hint of flowers.
First hit is of hops immediately followed by the sweetness of the malt. It has a creaminess reminiscent of an ale. Full mouth feel. Finishes with a citrus tingle that begs for another sip.
This is not bad.

Beer Quote of the day

Of doctors and medicines we have in plenty more than enough... what you may, for the Love of God, send us some large quantity of beer.

To not send is cruel and unusual!
