Brewed in collaboration with Other Half Brewery, this beer was going to be called Bud Life but a certain brewing megalith decided they weren’t going to allow it and so ™Life it is.
Amarillo Mosaic and Chinook combine to make this pale gold beer with its fluffy little head an absolute delight.
But then we wouldn’t expect anything else from Cloudwater, right?
The aroma is orchard fruit and garden border flowers, sweet and fruity and delicious, and as soon as you take a mouthful the hops are right there.
They’re fresh with passion fruit and lime zest, mango and peach, and a lovely thick and woody tobacco leaf stickiness that makes the fruit salad finish feel round and deep.
There’s a solid malt body as well, with honey and caramel, waffles and Fruit Loop cereal creating a spun sugar and biscuit backbone and keeping the beer feeling round and chewy.
I’m voting ™Life.
