Details

Beer never fails to surprise us. Agua de Sapo from Siren Craft Brew, a brewery we file under ‘always interesting’, is a beer that takes flavours of ginger and lemon wraps it up in a 5.8% brown ale. It is based on Agua de Sapo, a popular light and refreshing soft drink from Costa Rica (guess where the brewer of this beer comes from) made from, yes, lemon and ginger. While the ginger is discernible on the nose, it’s the hoppy citrus notes that come through straight away. Drinking this effervescent beer it is the ginger that comes through more, but never dominates it, focussing instead on drinkability. Agua de Sapo means frog water, probably a nod to its muddy colour. It’s may not be pretty to look at, but it’s very tasty. One for a hot summer’s day.

Brewery Info

Siren Craft Brew don’t do boring. Even among the core range, usually reserved for the more ‘commercial’ beers, includes a 6% breakfast stout, a red IPA and Calypso, a Berliner-style sour beer. (What a wonderful beery world we live in). But this is a brewery that doesn’t know how to stop – there’s a huge range of seasonal, experimental and collaborative beers, the best of which we’re lucky enough to stock.

Yet, underpinning the whole operation is the ethos that beer should be exciting and enjoyed in the same way as fine wines, yet balanced and drinkable. It has been a remarkable journey since founder Darron Anley started the brewery in 2012, and we can’t wait to see where it will go next.

Pleasant enough, but nothing special
it's brown, but not as we know it

Definitely the best gingery beer I've ever had. Too tightly bubbled until it settles but nicely hazy, not too boringly brown, and balanced.
Not bad

Medium brown colour, hazy, ginger, grapefruit and spicy (Chinese five-spice?) aroma, medium crisp mouthfeel, hoppy, malty, ginger and lime flavour, sweet, ginger aftertaste.
Perfect Christmas Ale

This brown ale is warm and full bodied with a sweet ginger bread finish. I had this in June but couldn't help but feel this would be perfect over the festive period.
