Siren are a brewer whom I only discovered after I started this blog; I saw their beers popping up in lots of people's instagram posts and then took the plunge after I saw them advertising their Barrel Aged Caribbean Chocolate Cake (what a stout that is!).

As I was placing an order on their website I grabbed a few other bottles to maximise the postage and boy am I glad I did. Siren know how to brew.

Today I fancied a break from some of the stouts and porters that I'd be enjoying lately, so I plumped for Liquid Mistress, a red IPA that Siren describe it as their "femme fatale - mysterious, seductive and disarming."

It's lively (I didn't notice the advise on the bottle to pour carefully) and produced a large head atop the dark burnt red body. In the glass it has a lovely autumnal look to it.

The nose is a lovely blend of dates, toffee and fresh cut grass sweetness and it has a smooth silky mouth feel.

The dark fruits follow through into the flavour, along with deep caramel. There is hint of citrus from the hops but a strong bitterness becomes very evident to the finish.

That being said, I actually found this to be quite well balanced and pretty easy drinking.

On a chilly autumnal afternoon with rain hammering against the window, it was a pretty fine drink to enjoy whilst watching the rugby.

Siren Craft Brew have done it again.
