We are Reckless, hear us roar,
With every glass of beer we pour,
You taste our values as you sip, and sip again.

Brewed by women, drunk by all;
Equality is at our core.
No matter who you are, come drink with us as friends.

Reckless is a woman-led-and-run brewery that’s never been afraid to fly the equality flag high, whether that’s in the form of this blog post or a beer paying tribute to the singer of one of the great anthems of feminism.

Helen Red XPA* is a collab between Reckless and Akasha for International Women’s Day. It shines the deepest gold struck through with rusty red and holds its head high (that is, has long-lasting foam). Biscuit-backed fruit flavours remind me of some of those Arnott’s cream biscuits, like Orange Slice, Monte Carlo and Lemon Crisp.** But unlike those biscuits, this flavour doesn’t hang around in your mouth for ages afterwards – it whisks away for a clean, dry finish, making this a delightfully sessionable beer.

Proceeds from Helen Red XPA are going towards the Centre West Women’s Health Centre.

If you were expecting me to discuss the illogical nomenclature of a red XPA (“How can an EXTRA PALE ale be RED?”), you’re in the wrong place. I’ll take a red IPA, a red XPA, a red witbier, a red stout… whatever you got. Red beer > logic.
Yes, I’m well aware these three biscuits taste quite different from each other. No, I don’t want to hear your impassioned speech for or against any of them.*
