Craft Beer Review: SX Dark from Hope Brewery

Welcome to the Shed. I am even-star and this is The Beer in Review. Today's craft beer review is for SX Dark from Hope Brewery.

Share It!

I had to go back and check my history as I was fairly certain SX Dark was one of my 2015 reviews already. I have had Dark Demon and SX Demon from Hope this year but not SX Dark. So it was a bit of a bonus new one for the week.

SX Dark was a red malty bitter. It was red fruits and also red grape-y in a strange way. A thin body and a kind of fermented fruity tanginess that wasn't really to my taste.

Not the best beer I've had from Hope but I had this at a pub that has gone a bit down hill in their beer handling (in fact it was one of the reasons we stopped going there about a year ago and thought we should try it again) so I might give it another chance if I see it on elsewhere.

The Beer in Review is a blog about beer. Mostly British beer because that is where I live. I post a review every week day. Make sure you check in on Friday which is when I reveal BEER. OF THE. WEEK! You can contact me with comments and questions on twitter or facebook.
