Cheshire Craft Beer Review: Hop Sepia from Sandiway Ales

Welcome to the Shed. I am even-star and this is The Beer in Review. Today's Cheshire craft beer review is for Hop Sepia from Sandiway Ales.

Share It!

Hop Sepia was a cloudy amber. Very fruity. Plums, peach, sweet guava nectar. Nothing citrus, which was interesting, little bit of astringency and tannins.

I sometimes wonder if people actually taste the beer before they order the pump clips. If I had been paying attention I would never even have tried this beer. I really dislike liquorice. And there was absolutely no liquorice in this whatsoever! And there have been loads of beers like that.

Personally, I wouldn't put a discription on the pump but rather provide the pubs with tasting notes. What do you think? Have you ever been put off trying a beer because of the pump clip description? What beers have you had that bore no resemblance to that description? Tweet me @even_star.
