Beer Profile: Sherwood Forest Maiden’s Blueberry Ale

Reviewed by Ken Carman

Has a distinct blueberry nose but seems to be missing it in the taste. Otherwise an excellent beer with almost a Mild body; kind of like their Archer’s Ale which is excellent too… though that is described by their website as an English Pale. I’m assuming they dry hopped with blueberries or juice/extract rather than brewing with them. Blueberry is tough to brew with and it can disappear after a short while, so I’m a little less critical than I might be. Might want to address the taste though, if possible. No hop sense, but one would expect that. Hops would probably distract even more from the needed blueberry taste.
