Beer Writer and Expert – Tim Hampson’s Top Tips
Sussex brewers – Burning Sky and Harveys – have produced a collaborative brew in memory of CAMRA Brighton and South Downs branch member Ruth Anglezarke, who was the brewery liaison office for both breweries. When Ruth died earlier this year the brewers decided to combine their skills to produce a beer in “memory of a dear friend”. Anglezarke’s IPA, at 6.6 per cent, has a juicy malt base of Maris Otter barley, oats and Cara malts support the rich aromas of spiced orange and mango.
Kingstone 1503 Tudor Ale, at 4.8 per cent, is brewed to a 500-year old recipe. Markedly different from modern beers, 1503 is deep chestnut red, lightly hopped, yet full of chocolate, coffee and malt complexities.
Black Sheep’s Holy Grail, at4 per cent is the official beer of Monty Python, full flavoured it has a bitter finish.
For people who are keen to sample a sour beer one wot look out for is Tiny Rebel’s Mojito Sour, at 3.9 per cent. A new sour beer, it is flavoured with mint and lime to give it a punchy Mojito flavour.
