The Star Brewery – Solus Simcoe

WP_20141024_004What they say? Well, nothing that I could find as at the time of typing they don’t have their own website however the good folk at www.perfectpint.co.uk reckon this:

Next in Star’s Solus series, Simcoe is something
of a cult hop amongst American Craft
Brewers. It is closely associated with IPA
styles and is highly aromatic, often described
as both fruity and having an herbal, earthy,
pine fragrance

The last few days of our Autumn half-term break saw us in Cambridgeshire to catch up with family and friends and staying on a site near the village of Willingham – although sadly not within walking distance.

An unexpected – and sadly rather late – find was The Bank micro pub offering half a dozen ales poured direct from the cask. Sadly we only got to try one each but a return visit for Christmas – along with the services of a local taxi – promises more ‘research’ opportunities.

As you may have guessed from perfect pint’s description, this golden ale from this young (2012)Lincolnshire based brewery was not really to my taste but I look forward to trying some of their other brews when the chance arises.
