Saturday nite's beer review: Monkey wrench

monkeyrench

Monkey Wrench is brewed by the Daleside Brewery located somewhere in England. The label on the bottle describes it as "dark and beautifully smooth" while according to the Daleside's web page, it is a "strong, smooth, malty ale with a touch of sweetness". It was smooth alright, whatever that means, but I wouldn't call it "strong" and I didn't think it was sweet at all. It is a good beer, nevertheless, but I would like it better if it had a stronger aroma.

Daleside has a peculiar, poorly written and designed web page. If you look under "Bottled beers", you won't find the Monkey Wrench, but if you Google for it, the link I put above comes up. Why is it that only seldom does a brewery have a decent webpage?

Cheers!

Under Bottled Beers, clicking on the image will get you to a page with 4 beers, the last being Monkey Wrench, it seems that the 7 beers have become 10. I will have to see if they are available in Australia.

Maybe brewery webpages are created by the staff, after work, assisted by a selection of the products.
