This week has been a little disappointing on the beer front. Plenty available but nothing really outstanding. That was until I called in Tapped in Leeds on Friday. They had a Brew York tap takeover the previous night and some of the offerings were still available.
I had sampled all bar one of the cask beers previously so I sampled the two new keg beers. The weaker of the two has achieved this weeks accolade. It was launched at the takeover so I was obviously new to me and I had no real information about it. 'Reinvent The Peel' does give a clue about the beer but not much. It is a 2.7% Berliner Weisse, light and subtly hopped with Mount Hood (which I think is a much underused and excellent hop), and with real lemon and lime in the brew.
It is an excellent beer for a summer day, light and refreshing, and very cleansing in the mouth feel. Not sure where it is available but it is worth trying should you see it around.
