Kea Porter (5.2% ABV, bottle)
This has always been my favourite of Stuart Woodman’s portfolio. Very, very deep red with a light tan head, the kea plums essential to the brew are right there on the nose, along with a light woodiness. On the palate, it’s slightly tart, very fruity, but with a sweetness in the background, even a little smokey. Quite vinous, the beer has a nice hedgerow quality. There’s a lingering fruity bitterness on the finish.
Buy it: It’s available on parent company Goodh Brewing Co’s website.
