Brass Castle Sunshine India Pale Ale

So from the village of Tockwith just to the west of York, my mini tour of Yorkshire breweries takes me to Pocklington to the south and east of that city, and the Brass Castle Brewery.

The bottle tells me that Brass Castle is a nano brewery and like others that I’ve acquired, Sunshine India Pale Ale is bottle conditioned (so I made a mental note to pour carefully).

This 5.7% ABV light ale is a light copper colour and pours without any discernible head (so once poured, this ale as it quietly bubbles away resembles a glass of a well-known and traditional energy drink).  There’s a faintly floral and fruity aroma, and the flavour is a surprise:  orange with hints of caramel, almost sweet, with a bitterness that hits the tongue only after all the other flavours have made their presence known.

This has been an interesting experience, and I’ve got three more beers to try from this small Yorkshire brewery. Can’t wait.

    Glad you enjoyed the Brass Castle. I hope you have the Bad Kitty. As vanilla Stouts go, it’s a corker!
