Pouring deep copper, Friday is their take on an American-style IPA. Sweet mandarin, cooked peaches and brown sugar aromas bring to mind homemade peach crumble, with resinous pine flavours layered over a muted caramel backbone. Robust and nicely balanced, with a medium body and lingering, dusty finish.
We do love a bit of cool packaging, so these And Union cans with their striking block colours and a tactile embossed pattern are right up our street.
And Union are a bunch of hip London-based craft brew fanatics working with traditional Bavarian breweries to bring us malt-forward, unfiltered and unpasteurised brews that blend perfectly modern British beer-making sensibilities with centuries old craft and know-how.
