Crumbs Brewing

Bloomin’ Amber Lager (4.8% ABV, bottle)
Gold/amber with good carbonation, and a very slightly off-white head that lasts well. On the nose, well, it’s bready, as it’s made with leftover loaves, specifically Surrey bloomers. A little glrassy hop and light citrus on the nose. In the mouth, a more malty lager than many wil be used (but then I’m a Brooklyn Lager fan with its lovely Vienna malt). As the label says, it tastes like a lager/ale hybrid (buzzword alert). Clean and refreshing, with a good body and a nice, gently bitter finish. Good work, Crumbs!

Crumbs Bloomin' Amber Lager

Rye Coffee Porter (7% ABV, bottle)
Very dark, with red-tinged light around the edges and a beige head that falls away quite quickly. It smells rich and inviting, somewhere between espresso coffee and bitter dark chocolate. There’s a slight leatheriness, too. So rich on the palate, giving an impression of barrel ageing, although there’s none mentioned on the bottle. Rye loaves and spent coffee grains are among the ingredients, and both make themselves known on the palate, but there’s also rich dark chocolate, a little Christmas-time spiciness, and a suggestion of booze-soaked dark cherries. Love this!

Crumbs Brewing Rye Coffee Porter

Rye Ruby Ale (5% ABV, bottle)
A proper autumnal ale, drunk as meteorological autumn gets under way. It’s a lovely red colour, with a thick, foaming, off-white head. There’s beautiful maltiness, with berry fruit, hints of red apple skin, and toffee. The aroma is quite malty (bready, of course), with some burnt toffee. Good bitterness on the finish.

Crumbs Rye Ruby Red Ale

Sourdough Pale Ale (4.2% ABV, bottle)
Bright and deep golden with a thick white head that stays well. On the aroma, there is that sourdough note, rather than just straightforward bready malt. Also, some spicy, slightly herbals hops. On the palate, there’s a slight tartness, perhaps in this instace from both the bread and the hops, plus lemon, a little lime; zesty, but not too bitter. There’s a tingle of tartness on the finish. Polished and very refreshing.
