Avast ye scurvy dogs. I be the Dread Pirate even-star and this fetid hive of scum and villainy be The Beer in Review. ARRRRRRRRRR. Today's Essex craft beer review is for SX Smugglers from Hope Brewing Company.

Share It!

Squee! A new one from Hope! It seems ages since I've had a new one from them. And this one was definitely their most experimental one I have had.

Here are some more awesome Hope beers from 2015. Click on the name to read the review!


SX Smugglers was a clear amber bitter full of tropical fruit flavours. Fruit punch, rum, cherry, papaya, and coconut! But in like a beer-y way. It actually reminded me a bit of a Wadworth beer I tried once that had actual rum in it. I think is was called Swordfish. It was a little too sweet for me to absolutely fall in love with it but it was so interesting.
