The Daring Diver

Hey Everyone!

Today I am going to be sharing my thoughts on a new beer called the Daring Diver* released exclusively to Morrisons by Badger Ales. The name celebrates a mischievous mallard in the River Stour which I thought was quite funny.

I was kindly provided with two samples to try out and I am going to give you all the low down on what I thought. 

First of all, and this is the beauty blogger in me talking, the packaging is quite cute. I like the badger logo and the illustration of the aforementioned mischevious mallard after which the beer is named. 

The drink is an amber beer at 4.7% abv for a 500ml bottle brewed with Slovenian Celeia hops, which they say lends a rich and pronounced citrus hop character to the beer complementing a moreish biscuit malt base. 

After I had a sip test, I could definitely taste a light hint of lemon citrus which gave it a nice sharpness when mixed with what I would describe as a toffee/caramel biscuitty like taste which was sweet and all round very pleasant. I enjoyed drinking it and would definitely have it again. I can imagine it being quite nice to sip chilled on a sunny afternoon which reading a book in the garden with food off the BBQ.

If you would like to try out the Daring Diver for yourself, head over to your local Morrisons where it is exclusively sold. There are also other beers under the Badger Ales brand so worth checking out the different varieties.

Thanks for reading and leave me a comment below with any other drink reviews you would like to see!
