Midlothian Craft Beer Review: Musselburgh Broke from Knops Beer Company

Midlothian Craft Beer Review: Musselburgh Broke from Knops Beer Company real ale pump clip
Welcome to the Shed. I am even-star and this is The Beer in Review. Today's Midlothian craft beer review is for Musselburgh Broke from Knops Beer Company.

Share It!

Musselburgh Broke is a red beer. Very fruity and light flavoured. Plum, strawberry, black current and cherry with a finish of bitter liquorice. Thin bodied with some effervescence. I warmed up to it in the end. Started out a bit hard going but would be nice with a meal like duck or hot steaming game pie.

Musselburgh is a place that has a race course in Scotland. Just in case you were wondering what all the pump clip was about. I would have to say that this is an example of regional branding that doesn't quite translate. Someone from Scotland MIGHT get this reference but to a Londoner it is kind of obscure. Some breweries do it better by adding some information to their clip that will make a regional reference clearer.
