I discovered Grain Brewery almost by accident in 2010 when I made my maiden voyage into learning about beer while cycling around Norfolk & Suffolk. I arrived announced but was shown around the former dairy barn by the very warm & welcoming Phil (cofounder & brewer).
Since my visit Grain has gone from strength to strength winning a string of awards including two gongs for this Redwood Red Ale 4.8% abv.
Here are my notes…
Eye- Lovely bright copper red
Nose- Sweet corn, malted caramel & lemon peel
Palate- Sharp, clean, fresh peach, pithy, creamy malt texture and a nutty orange zest finish
Verdict- Definitely worth it’s CAMRA & SIBA awards this one. A great session ale for a sunday lunch or warm autumn evening
You can also watch me taste their Grain IPA in my very first video beer review here.
