Another bottle – well, actually six – from the Mendocino Brewing Company, and each and every one of them has poured a beautiful golden-amber pint with an eddy of enticing bubbles and an invitingly creamy, rich head. I may as well tell you now, I really rate this beer high. And I’m sure it’s not just because I’ve drunk four of them in a row… well, fairly sure. That might have something to do with it, of course…
Anyway. Eye of the Hawk is, according to it’s neck wrap, a firm favourite at the Great British Beer Festival. Can’t say I recall seeing it there, but I’ve grown to appreciate it’s up-front approach to delivering a robust, sweet and malty blast of ale. Like the alcohol content, the aroma’s strong and up-front, the colour’s rich and promising, and the beer itself tastes complex, ripe, and strong. Malt,
This is clearly a beer for the enthusiast, for someone who appreciates a finely brewed drop, and one I’ll heartily recommend over pretty much anything I’ve drunk so far on this year. Good stuff.
