First of all I have to say that Poacher’s choice is hands down one of my favourite beers. It comes in a reassuring bottle from Badger Brewery and comes in at 5.7%. The beer is classed as a ruby ale but to my mind it is a much richer and darker beer than that. When it is poured it looks quite dark and malty, with aromas of fruit and liquorice on the nose.
The taste is fruity with a lovely liquorice aftertaste and it is a great drinker on its own. It is perfect for an autumn or early spring day. I have to give it a very high recommendation and it is well worth trying, even if ruby beers aren’t necessarily your thing.
