Thorn­bridge & Four­pure Brew­eries Fresa, Straw­berry Milk­shake IPA, 4.8% ABV, 330ml bot­tle, avail­able at Tesco

THIS beer is a col­lab­o­ra­tion brew by Thorn­bridge Brew­ery of Bakewell, Der­byshire, and Four­pure Brew­ing Co of Ber­mond­sey, Lon­don.

A milk­shake IPA is a beer that has been sweet­ened by adding lac­tose which does not fer­ment in al­co­hol and re­mains sweet.

Lac­tose was tra­di­tion­ally added to Milk Stouts but now craft brew­ers are adding it to other beers to cre­ate ‘Milk­shake IPAs’.

Fresa is murky yel­low in colour and pours with a thin white head.

Straw­ber­ries are dom­i­nant in the aroma.

Sweet straw­ber­ries in the taste be­fore the milk­shake flavour takes hold.

This re­ally does taste of straw­berry milk­shake!

A bit too sweet for me but no doubt oth­ers will like it.
