The Swift Half 7

The Swift Half

This is the Swift Half 7. At Gipsy Hill we want to showcase good brews. These are the beers that we think are damn tasty! East London’s Forest Road Brewery is top!

Brewery: Forest Road Brewing Co.

Style: American Pale Ale

Location: Forest Road, London


ABV: 5.4%

There could only really be one place to try this beer. At work.

Forest Road are based over in East London, knocking out their American pale ale “Work”. I was first introduced to their beer at Craft Beer Rising earlier in the year. Charlie & Sam brought an arm full of beers back to the stall, hoping to use them for tasting sessions at the brewery. This went out the window pretty quickly. This beer was probably one of the standouts of our haul.

Work is a punchy fruity APA. It has this really soft aroma of honey, lovely. The taste is so apricotty then rolls right through to a piney/herby bittering. Being around 5.4%, I normally think there will be a little boozy kick but there isn’t which is great. Top beer to have after a long day in the office.
