745: Weetwood | Jester IPA

20220328_163242The brewery: Weetwood Ales began brewing in 1992 when finding a great pint of cask ale was a challenge. The brewery was founded by Adrian Slater, a skilled brewer, and Roger Langford, a farmer with space in a barn and a love for proper beer. Roger’s farm is in Weetwood Common, near Tarporley in Cheshire and the brewery took the name”

The beer: “You’ll be laughing along with this modern India Pale Ale which pairs US hops with British, including the delightful ‘Jester’. Vibrant tropical fruit aromas begin the fun and the punchline comes from the refreshing citrus finish.”

Another quality ale from Weetwood, this was certainly full of flavour. Not my favourite style of beer as you know but I served it quite a bit colder than usual and it was very refreshing indeed. As I’ve said before, a style I’d enjoy more on a hot summers’ night. March 2022. Related entries.
