Stoke Beer - Nelson

Had the pleasure of trying of few of the Stoke beers made by the McCashin's in Stoke.



The flavours are:

  • Gold
  • Amber
  • Dark

My favorite was the the Dark... smooth and moreish... with a lovely and accessible rich flavour - without being overly complex and fussy. The sort of beer you can have a few of - while chilling out with friends. It reminded me of some of the beers I used to enjoy in London - so I would guess you could probably drink the Dark at close to room temperature - and it would still be enjoyable.

I know these aren't technical beer review terms - but you know... I'm of the school if it tastes good - it is good.

Being - into packaging these days - I just love the bottle and the labelling - particularly the use of the gold text.

I have not tried the Dark as it is not in our local supermarket, however i agree entirely with your description but with reference to the Amber variety. I look forward to trying the DArk when it arrives. The Amber is my favourite beer to date.
