A fellow Moate blow in was up in his native Donegal and he called up to our friends from Kinnegar Brewing and procured a bottle of the lesser spotted Brownknowe for me. This particular special is a Brown Kettle Sour. Somehow this beer made it in to my fridge which was probably a bad idea. Luckily I had a conveniently located open fire to let it warm by. When it was cold I got very little from it, but as the temperature rose so did the aroma and flavour. It had rather pleasant raisin and cherry like notes. ( Can I say that without sounding like a pretentious tosser? ) I liked the slightly sour flavour in the finish. It’s something different from one of the best breweries on this island. Pick it up if you see it. Sláinte!
How now Brownknowe?
