Brewed in collaboration with Marverine Cole, using Galaxy and Montueka hops.

Poured from a 330ml bottle into a Fullers snifter glass.

Pours a dark reddy/orange colour with a small head.

Smells of caramel like malts and fruity, citrusy hops.

Tastes very tropical, fruits like mango from the hops, and roasted caramel/toffee malts. An overriding bitterness from the hops and a quite a nice full mouthfeel.

Overall i'm quite pleasantly surprised by this brew. I wasn't expecting much from Brains but this is not only original but tasty too.
