No. 206 – Archibald Chipie

No. 206 Archibald Chipie

Another purchase based on the woman on the bottle or tin…

One more to notch off from my list of Archibald beers.  Apparently, translations for Chipie range from ‘little vixen’ to ‘bitch.’  Anyway, it’s a red pale ale, which looks better poured than the picture shows.  It had quite a strong aroma on pouring but the taste did not follow up.  At 5% it’s not too weak but it tasted quite weak.  Yes, it’s fine.  Yes, worth a couple of dollars.  Yes, it is accurate.  Yes, I’d try it again (if I could find it on draft) and Yes, I’d recommend it, particularly to people who would like to make a step up from lighter beers.  A decent 5/11.
