Fallen Brewery is based in Kippen, about 10 miles west of Stirling. Light Freight is only 2.7% and has a lovely fruity taste. I found it easy to drink and rather delicious.
The old Kippen railway station has been the home of Fallen Brewery since 2014. A railway theme can be found in the names of their beers, such as 'Just the Ticket', 'Local Motive', and 'Chew Chew.'
The label on the bottle is a simple, rustic design. The bottle cap features the hop symbol of the brewery.
Light Freight has a fruity taste. I could detect exotic fruits like mango and papaya. It also smells fruity. I loved the taste and I couldn't get enough of it. It is not overwhelming and not sweet like a Belgian fruit beer or a cider. There is a slight bitterness which probably prevents it from being too sweet. The aftertaste is hoppy with, I thought, a hint of mango. Very nice, very refreshing and at 2.7% a good one if you still have some cycling to do after a beer stop.
On their website Fallen Brewery say that they supply beer to many pubs across England, Scotland and Wales. They also list some specialist retail outlets for their bottled beer, mainly in Glasgow and Edinburgh. I really enjoyed Light Freight and will look forward to trying some more of the brewery's beer.
