Beer Friday. World Top Yorkshire Brewery, Scarborough Fair IPA
Writing this two days before Christmas and I've just spent the last two days Christmas shopping. Oddly enough I didn't find the crowds all that bad this year. I was waiting for those serial killer vibes to enter my anger rinsed brain but felt nothing. In fact, I felt jolly. The highlight was sitting in Starbucks overlooking the ice rink in West Edmonton mall watching the skaters. The Christmas spirit finally hit then but I sadly lost it since that moment. I'm not sure how I will get it back.
Scarborough Fair is a gluten free beer. Perfect for those who are celiac or who choose to live a gluten free lifestyle. World top Yorkshire Brewery is located in... What..? Really? What is with some of these English places and their bizarre names? I'm not even going to try to attempt to write that. It's in England. Close to Manchester (we think.) Who knows, maybe it's in Ireland. To the owners and employees of this place, I apologize.
The pour was done and we admired a dirty golden coloured beer with very little head. Is this a gluten free thing? A small crowd of foam did hang around the top though looking tempting. Looking sexy. I was tired of the Christmas rush and was ready for this one. I took the glass to my nose and was rewarded with fruity hops. I could almost tell by the smell that this IPA was truly going to be hoppy.
Hoppy it was but not what I was expecting. Maybe this would score low points on the hoppy richter scale. Hints of fruity hops with a trace of grapefruit round it out. As for a gluten free beer it fared quite well and would strongly recommend if that is what you need. If not, look elsewhere. Compared to other IPA's this one didn't deliver.
This beer gets 2.5 suds out of 5.
