775: Peerless | Knee Buckler IPA

20220705_153246The brewery: “Peerless Brewing is an award winning microbrewery based in Birkenhead on the Wirral Peninsula. We specialise in creating modern cask conditioned ales and keg beers by combining traditional brewing techniques and fine ingredients with a modern approach.”

The beer: “Knee Buckler is a wonderfully golden IPA style beer. At 5.2% there is good strength and lots of initial hop bitterness which is matched with a little hint of sweetness from the use of  Crystal and Caramalts,  The aftertaste and aroma comes from a blend of American hops, Citra, Cascade and Columbus which gives a distinct fruity finish.”

Not my favourite style of beer but on a warm day, and it being nicely chilled, it went down very well indeed. 5.2% A.B.V. July 2022.
