I had a bottle of Avery Brown Dredge last night. We were in the Port St Beer House (freezing as usual) and Tyson insisted. And he paid, such was his insistence. I was expecting not to like it that much, as I thought somehow it might be a bit sweet and sticky given its strength, but I was delightfully surprised to find it just the opposite, being astonishingly clean (I like clean in a beer) and certainly drinking more like a five and a half percenter rather than the 7.5% it is. The hops come shining through after each sip and really showcase the Saaz hop; the malt balance was excellent and the finish had just the right length and hop flourish. It is a lovely beer with a great deal of elegance and sophistication.

So what else is there to say except, buy* it. It is really good.

*Better still, have it bought for you!https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/8629758183547510158-2483138551500554442?l=tandlemanbeerblog.blogspot.c om
