Essex Craft Beer Review: Lumberjack from Brentwood Brewing Company

Welcome to the Shed. I am even-star and I did the lumberjack pun last year so all you get is: this is The Beer in Review. Today's Essex craft beer review is for Lumberjack from Brentwood Brewing Company.

Share It!

So it is kind of interesting this year because I am seeing beers I had last year and get to compare my impressions. This is what I said about Lumberjack last year:
Lumberjack was a dark brown, fruity, medium bitter. Loads of flavour with cherries, malts, coffee, and bitter dark chocolate. It was smooth and kind of creamy without descending into dessert beer territory.
This is what I thought this year: Lumberjack was a dark copper bitter. Very bitter edge but fruity at the back. Warming and boozy with cherry, raspberry, and grapefruit pith bitterness.

So different colour, more bitter, and more fruity with less coffee, chocolate, and malts.

Still a very good beer!
