A Crafty Beer


A blog about craft ale. You'll find plenty of beers here and the ongoing adventure of a group of regular, normal people as they travel the UK (and sometimes further) in search of the best places to drink and relax. I post about beers I like and ones I don't, what you won't find here is a lot of guff about nose, body and mouth feel.

Frank Turner Believe - Signature Brew. This is my 3rd Signature Brew band collaboration and I’m noticing a consistent disconnect between the bottle tasting notes and what is in the bottle. Which is a shame as this isn’t bad, but is more of a decent IPA than a ‘modern twist on a trafitional wheat beer.’ Didn’t get any wheatiness from it and I think if I had it would have been a carbon copy of Blue Moon (which I actually quite like). Putting the bottle description aside, this is fresh and citrussy, it is very drinkable - not brilliant, but not bad either. Hopefully Signature can improve on this as I like the idea they are persuing and I think they could get great tasting beer in front of an audience that wouldn’t choose a ‘craft ale.’ At the moment though their beers fall consistently short and feel a bit style over substance.
