Wiltshire Craft Beer Review: New Forest Ale from Downton Brewery

Welcome to the Shed. I am even-star and this is The Beer in Review. Today's Wiltshire craft beer review is for New Forest Ale from Downton Brewery.

Share It!

New Forest was a cloudy amber bitter. Smelled like roses! Tasted very floral as well. Predominantly rose. But no sweetness. Very interesting! New flavour in beer for me. Some earthiness and a tang of something like cinnamon and turmeric.

Sadly, I only got to try this beer the once as it had run out by the next day. I wanted to see if my initial assessment held up. Never had anything quite like that in beer before. Especially the very distinctive scent of rose.
