Six Hop Ale

Dark Star Brewery

The Sparrow … On Tap is a regular (weekly I hope) feature. The Sparrow is a great beer bar in Bradford, I work in Bradford and love to visit this fabulous bar. They offer a great range of beers and in The Sparrow … On Tap I will highlight one of the beers they are serving that week. If you live nearby why not head up to North Parade and try it for yourself and if you live further afield you can view it as a simple text review of a British cask or keg beer…and once in awhile I may even throw in a continental lager or two. With this feature I hope to support a great local business and wonderful beer.

The Sparrow … On Tap – weekly short #9

Six Hop Ale – Dark Star Brewery

6.5% abv

Method of dispense: Cask – Handpull

Appearance: Bright tangerine orange beer with a creamy off-white head that had an orange hue.

Aroma: Big orange peel, intense concentrated peach juice and bold resinous pine.

Taste:  Showing of all of its hefty 6.5% abv with a sizeable chewy body I got flavours of sweet pine, grapefruit flesh, jasmine tea and lots of bitter orange marmalade (with bits of rind).

Aftertaste: Finishes rather full flavoured with bitter grapefruit juice, prickly hops that dance on the tastebuds and lots more of that bitter marmalade that lingers.
