Essex Craft Beer Review: Enigma from Elephant School Brewing Company

Welcome to the Shed. I am even-star and this is The Beer in Review: Today's Essex craft beer review is for Enigma from Elephant School Brewing Company.

Share It!

So many familiar faces back on the pumps this week. Today we have Enigma from Brentwood Brewing Company's Elephant School brand. I had a shaky start with ESBC but was converted earlier this year with some very strong offerings. A couple were even beer of the week I think.

And Enigma nearly took the title this week but was beaten by a very small hair.

It was a very clear light orange beer. A pleasant citrus with orange zest. Right in between bitter and sweet and with a bitter finish that was grassy and bit savoury like asparagus. Really enjoyed this one.

A single hopped beer is one that is flavoured with a single kind of hops. There are hundreds of varieties of hops and they all impart different kinds of flavours to the beer. Brewers usually mix different kinds of hops to create a flavour profile but sometimes you get varieties that can stand on their own. Enigma is a special Australian variety which has been used in this beer. If you want to see just how many flavours they can produce spin the wheel o' hops

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.
