BOX STEAM BREWERY
WET YOUR WHISTLE
Review by Andy
BOX STEAM SAY…
Wet Your Whistle is a full bodied golden ale with a refreshingly clean bittersweet taste and aroma of fruit and hops.
I like the design of this beer, it is nice and simple, with a good solid label and a pure black bottle top, sometimes simple is best.
Brewed by the Box Steam Brewery in Wiltshire, this seems like a fairly smallish brewery that are clearly doing something right to get their beer into a major supermarket – I bought this one in Aldi.
Described as a ‘zesty golden ale’ the first thing that I notice is the colour, it is not so much golden as a deep copper.
Smells ever so slightly malty with a hint of an orange aroma.
Taste is a lot lighter than the colour, it is definitely bittersweet and fairly refreshing.
This has a fair amount of flavour to it, leaves my tastebuds a little confused as I’m not sure if I’m drinking a fruit infused new age craft beer or a old school bitter.
Something a little different and I’ll be keeping my eye out for the rest of their range.
