Here we have Revelry from Bishop Nick at 4.5%. The smell of this one did a real transformation. It started off like Cornish scrumpy cider which changed through to hopps. Or maybe i’m just losing the plot. It’s stated as a golden ale on the bottle so I was kind of expecting something average and light. I was pleasently surprised when this wasn’t the case. The taste also changed after the first few gulps. What started as an impressivly sour smack lead to a calmer though still sour hoppy taste. It’s one of the few i’ve noticed over the course of the calendar to have a lot of sediment in it (though I probably just poured it poorly).
The label talks about the different kinds of hopps used. While it does taste hoppy the fruit flavours of the Rakau (passionfruit) and British Archer (citrus) hopps just didn’t come across for me. So overall, its an enjoyable beer but not essential to seek out.
