Radical Road

Brewery: Stewart Brewing

ABV: 6.4%

Bottle Size: 330ml

Taste:

Strong flavour of hops, slightly sweet with a lingering bitterness

Colour:

Clear amber

Aroma:

Hoppy with tropical fruity tones

Final Verdict:

Radical Road came to my attention in a local supermarket, and I just couldn’t leave it behind. The name, description and bottle labeling drew me in and intrigued me.

The pour was excellent, the golden amber colour and the the lasting creamy head was enticing. The aromas are beautifully hoppy, something which has become increasingly preferable. The hops are offset with a lovely aroma of tropical, slightly citric fruits. The taste reinforces the aromas, with lovely hops, balanced with fruity tones and an aftertaste which lingers but doesn’t overpower.

Looking further at the beer and researching after the tasting, it’s clear that this is a high quality pale ale. The list of awards it’s received is rather impressive, and it’s evident that quality hasn’t diminished by the bottling of this beer.

I’m mightily impressed by what I considered an impulse purchase, but I’m glad I took a chance on this one. Now I have to track down some of the other Stewart Brewing beers, which could prove tricky in Plymouth!
