I’ve read so much about Moor that I may have had overly high expectations.
In fact I was always going to be disappointed as every review I’ve read has been glowingly positive.
There are things about this beer I like a lot.
I like the 660ml bottle meaning you can leave the sediment and still pour a full pint.
I like how the orange of the label is reflected in the lovely mandarin hue of the beer.
I like the fiery dry heat of the hopping that puckers your tongue and curls back your gums, full of fly away floral flavours, pin-sharp peppercorns and sapling wood greenery.
But I’m struggling to find any discernible malts.
There’s a great big gap where the backbone of this beer ought to be.
It’s like it’s been gutted, all the meat removed.
This is a “Best Bitter done the Moor way”, and it’s nice but not great.
