A fantastic little Brewery over in Darlington & friends of the Pubs.
Golden colour, moderate white head. Nice aroma of butterscotch and fudge. Refreshing flavour with a decent hoppy bitterness throughout.

In the glass, the Funky Monkey is a copper-coloured little chap with tints of gold and orange. The nose features toffee, a soft pliant sort of toffee that also veers towards fudge, along with a juicy burst of orange blossom sweetness. It’s an enticing nose, refreshing and appetising. On the palate there is more of the juicy, orange blossom sweetness, which makes for a thirst-quenching fruitiness, that then clears the way for a dry finish also featuring a citrusy return and a hint of passion fruit.

Poured orange in colour with fluffy white head. Some light fruitiness in aroma. with some faint floral notes as well. Light malty in flavour. A bit dry, but somehow you can at least imagine some kind of summer here. Light fruitiness is also present. First impression was a bit dull, but it got better, felt very pleasant.
