Beer : Hop, Skip and Juice (Vocation / Manchester Marble Brewery)

Is Tom Hanks a fan of the brews? He probably is you know. He’s not made a bad film either. That’s a fact. I’m not sure what got me thinking about the Hankster but cracking this open i’m getting Cast Away vibes.

On the nose this one is all sweet and hop-infused pine. Full of joose, it’s loose, and most-definitely aboot this hoose…

On the taste-front there’s lip-smacking going on. It registers on the India-end of the Pale Ale spectrum – it’s slightly bitter and juicy enough to go with your cornflakes. It’s smooth on the mouthfeel but there’s still good body to it.

This one is light enough to enjoy without feeling like a meal but heavy enough to stick to 1 or 2. Good for an afternoon reading a book in the sun or at the half way mark of a full marathon.

It could be the cabin fever talking, or it could be that tropically Simcoe and oaty finish – but i’m ready to be marooned somewhere sunny with a few of these. Hammock optional.

Top form, lads! Give it a go.
