Carlow Brewing

O'Hara's Irish Red

And a happy Friday to one and all! This is a splendid traditional amber coloured Irish Red Ale. Aroma of caramel/toffee. A moderate bitterness with a caramel and toffee finish. Medium-bodied and smooth mouth feel. A lovely pint from an independent craft brewer from Ireland. 🇨🇮 •4.3% ABV• February 16th, 2018. — 4 years ago

Batemans

Dark Fruits Porter

9.2

This was a treat. First time I have had this from the traditional brewer Batemans. Lovely fruity aroma with sweet black and red berries to the fore.

Tastewise, it is rich but with the expected porter like consistency, and a nice tan head with light carbonation that gives a lovely sweet but very fruity taste. Certainly cherries and berries perhaps a little apple that are supported by the malts. I didn't get the nuttiness the brewer and others suggest, but no loss there for me.

Overall, a delightful fruit porter that was nice on a late summer evening and will be just as good in deep dark January.

Hilliard Bruce

Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay 2012

The 2012 Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay from Hilliard Bruce is quintessential Greg Brewer Chardonnay. Jay McInerney describes them as “almost paradoxical in their juxtaposition of ripeness and acidity, of voluptuousness and bone structure—in other words, wines that speak French but also know how to shake their booty on the dance floor.”
Almost a caricature of what a White Burgundy from California is... Lemon and rocks on full blast, and backed by the rhythm of floral infused butter and d’Anjou pear.

Cry Wolf Black IPA

GV
9.0

This is a new beer launched to market on 6th June 2022 by the Black Sheep brewery.

It is a very pleasant black IPA looking like a porter or stout but with a strong hoppy presence.

The brewer says "Black malt, chocolate malt and flaked oats join Maris Otter pale malt to add roasty caramel and chocolate notes and gives the beer an intense dark appearance. Masses of Cascade, Columbus, Chinook and Citra hops create woody pine, biting citrus and bright tropical flavours".

To drink, it was as they say above. I thought the malt and hop balance worked well making sure the citrussy hops didn't overpower the malt flavours.

Hilliard Bruce

Sky Pinot Noir 2012

I only needed to know that Greg Brewer was behind this label to take a chance. He is crafting Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir and Chardonnay for husband and wife John Hilliard & Christine Bruce, who are former artists and master gardeners who relocated from Houston to Santa Rita Hills in 2002 and purchased a 101 acre property with 21 acres under vine. Their 2012 Sky Pinot Noir presents high octane black cherry splashed across a myriad of earth tones that yields a juicy, yet savory style. In the secondary, citrus pith and floral notes juxtapose against loam and sandalwood. — 5 years ago
