Beer Box #11April 2021
April is here, the days are longer, and there's light at the end of the tunnel (at least for the time being). To celebrate this month's box features 5 light, bright beers from 3 brewers.
This month's Scottish beer is 71 Lager, from 71 Brewing in Dundee. The 71 Brewing Beer Garden will be opening soon, so book a table and get over there the first chance you get. Or make a day of it with a visit to DYNAMO (the 6º North Bar) and Brewdog Dundee.
Next up, we have 3 beers from Brew By Numbers (BBNo) in London. Two New England IPAs and a Lager. And finally session IPA by Full Circle Brewing in Newcastle.

05|India Pale Ale – Centennial by Brew By Numbers
This New England-style IPA pours with a pale orange glow and a heavy haze. Brewed with a hefty dose of new season Centennial, this modern pale ale unveils heady aromas of citrus peel, pine sap and subtle floral notes. A soft and pillowy mouthfeel builds into flavours of candied orange, sweet tangerine and a subtle piney finish. The resulting beer is balanced, full-bodied and bursting with a complex and juicy profile.

30|Lager – Rustic by Brew By Numbers
This premium rustic style lager beer has been brewed with Pilsner and Vienna malt alongside a generous amount of spelt for body and complexity. Pouring a light golden colour with a thick off-white head, the resulting beer is ultimately refreshing and satisfyingly full-bodied. A sweet and bready maltiness builds into notes of toasted cereal and subtle noble hop character. A zippy carbonation keeps the beer dry and crisp, encouraging sip after sip.

Repeater by Full Circle Brew Co
Who fancies a sesh? Tropical hops, soft and smooth. Well hopped can of joy. Light and clean but it's dangerously drinkable. A midweek marvel.

Eye of the Storm: Widely recognised as one of Britain’s finest landscape artists, James Morrison’s work hangs in the homes of JK Rowling and the Royal family, as well as in museums and private collections around the world. But in the twilight of his life, James loses his eyesight and with that, his ability to see the landscape as others couldn’t. As Morrison reflects on his remarkable artistic journey, from the Glasgow shipyards, to France and the vanishing arctic wilderness, he also confronts his sight loss by attempting one final masterpiece.
