Tayberry Beer

Buy Now

Róisin is our very own fruit beer. We brew a light, crisp blonde ale and add bucket loads of fresh Tayberries into cold tank & leave the two to mingle for 3 weeks.

The Tayberry is a cross between a Raspberry & a Blackberry, (relative of the American 'Loganberry'). The fruit is named after the Tay region in which it is grown. 

Róisin pours champagne pink with sweet hop & berry aromas which also carry through to the taste, with a satisfyingly lightly tart finish.

Tasting Tips from the Brotherhood

Colour

Make yourself comfortable in a well-lit room. Pour your beer into a glass and take a good, long look.

Describe what you see. Is it clear or cloudy? Does the foam on the head stick around or quickly dissipate? Is that foam "rocky" or "fluffy" and how would you describe its colour? Does the foam leave "lace" on the glass as you sip the beer? And the bubbles? Tight and champagne-like or larger and more bulbous?

Finally, colour: Use as many words as you want to describe it.

Smell

Tasting Tips from the Brotherhood

Aroma

Did you know the sense of smell accounts for about 80% of flavor perception?

Okay, here we go: Let your freshly-poured glass of beer breathe for a few moments. Now, give it a few brief sniffs. Swirl the glass a bit—like you’ve seen wine-buffs do—and have another whiff. Look past the obvious "smells like beer" responses. What other aromas are you getting? Maybe toasted malts, piney hops, maybe ester-and-phenol-producing yeast? Fruit? Spices?

Tasting Tips from the Brotherhood

Taste

Now that you have visually inspected your beer & described its aroma, you can engage in tasting. Remember that tasting is about the transition of flavors from the first sip contact through the finish.

Allow the beer to coat the inside of your mouth. Allow the liquid to run the full gamut of your tongue and hit all those taste bud areas, importantly, the bitterness receptors at the back of the tongue.

Now, describe the length, intensity and quality of the finish.

IBUs

IBUs stands for International Bittering Units. We use the IBU scale to measure of the bitterness of beer, which is provided by the hops used during brewing.

The bittering effect is less noticeable in beers with a high quantity of malt, so a higher IBU is needed in heavier beers to balance the flavor.

From the drinkers of Róisin

A mate brought some Róisin round on Saturday. We manfully watched the Glasgow Rugby game on telly while drinking this pink beer. The we manfully watched a bearded bloke in a dress win Eurovision. The second time pink beer seemed apt. It was excellent and I will be buying it again.

This fruity, crisp ale is bursting with berriness yet retains a true beer flavour. So good in fact, I've ordered cases for my wedding reception so I can share the love!

– Roy Willigham

Being a fan of Fraoch and Caesar Augustus I was eager to try Róisin. With a fresh and fruity sip and a malty aftertaste it didn't disappoint. For me it's a chill out beer, one to relax with and enjoy of an evening.
