Albino Pheasant(7.7% ABV, can)
Black black, with a rich tan head that stays well. There’s an aroma of molasses and a hint of bitter coffee. Very full body, lovely and smooth. On the palate, roasted mburnt malt, molasses, treacle, coffee, chocolate, and a little oakiness. Complex yet easy drinking, this is beautifully made. Absolutely love it!

Verdant Albino Pheasant

Alternative Currency (5.8% ABV, can)
Ooh, look a Verdant dark beer. Few and far between, always enjoyable, and this is no exception. It’s very dark with a ric, thick tan head. There are big roast malts on the aroma, vague notes of coffee, and a hint of rich berry. Very faint smokiness, too. On the palate, it’s rich and full, but not too overwhelming. Roast malt, berry fruit, coffee, vailla, hint of almond, with a satifying dryish finish. Yes, really enjoyable!

Combined Whimsy (4.7% ABV, can)
Hazy straw, with a white head that stays well, there’s a quite a bit of pineapple on the aroma, and a little coconut. The palate is very light and crisp. Pineapple, mango, lychee, some gooseberry. Nothing big and bold. There’s a hint of dry dankness on the finish. It’s gentle, refreshing, and rather lovely. If it was an actor, it would be John le Mesurier.

Verdant Combined Whimsy

Intimately Spaced Pylons (6.5% ABV, can)
Sandy/golden and very hazy, with a white head that stays well, the flavours in this brew meld together beautifully. The aroma is all about punchy pineapple, and that’s on the palate, too, along with grapefruit, lychees, and white grapes, with some biscuit malt balance. A lovely body, as ever with Verdant, and gentle bitterness on the finish.

Buy it: I bought mine from Johns off-licence, St Ives. You may find it on the Verdant website, depending on stocks.

Welcome U-Turn (8% ABV, can)
A barnstormer of double IPA, this. Hazy gold with a thick, foaming white head, there’s a huge amount going on aroma-wise. Pine, resin, and a whole heap of juicy citrus and stone fruits. On the palate, hops, hops, and more hops — not unreasonable as it’s a collaboration with Simply Hops. There are herbal notes and heaps of raw hop flavour.
