Looking forward to baron rating Mallinsons single hopped ales

Mallinsons have been very kind to the baron in the past and dropped off a selection of their fine ales as they were passing through Ormskirk. Tara got in touch with me last week to be saying that they would be passing through at the weekend so she would drop off some of their new single hopped ales including a bottle of Stella:


The Mallinsons branded glass is awesome, I love the fluted shape it's really comfy to hold and looks much more stylish than a regular pint pot. There was also a tshirt for me and in my size as well! (medium if anyone else is interested in sending me branded clothing...)

Mallinsons Brewing Company
  • Bramling Cross - 3.8% golden ale with light blackcurrant fruit nose. Bitter fruity light blackcurrant taste and a fruity tart finish
  • Brewers Gold - 3.8% golden ale with a fruity fresh hop aroma,hoppy bitter citrus taste & finish
  • Citra - 3.9% very pale ale,amazing grapefruit & light mango nose,bitter hoppy citrus taste with a bitter grapefruit & light passion fruit finish
  • Eye Pea Ay - 5% very pale blonde ale with a citrus hop aroma,tart bitter taste & a long lemon citrus finish (note: not part of the single hop range)
  • Stella - 4% very pale blonde ale with hoppy floral notes and a slight spiciness on the nose. Taste is bitter & hoppy with a bitter, dry finish
I don't think there's any need to write my baron ratings other than provide the score as Tara has done a great job of describing these beers already! I really like it when brewers describe the flavours you should get from the ale rather than just putting "a tasty refreshing balanced ale"...

Look out for 'baron ratings' for these Mallinsons beers soon, and a big thank you to Tara (@Mallinsons) from Mallinsons Brewery for handing these over to me!
