What a wonderfully simple bottle of beer this is.
There’s no over the top hopping, no fierce malts, just good satisfying beer flavours.
And sometimes that’s exactly what I need.
I love my hops but it can be palate numbing when all your drinks rip and tear at your face demanding all your attention by blasting you with enormous flavours that need lots of flowery words to describe.
This beer pours a very deep copper with no head to speak of.
Its malts are rounded and soft and full of caramel dipped in biscuits with a side order of bran flakes.
There’s a nice crunch to the beer, a crisp bitter flavour you can enjoy while taking in the aroma which is floral and peppery.
The finish here is dry and clean and full of greenery and elderflower water.
This is evening that was exactly the kind of beer for me.
It tasted great without demanding of me, and it cleared away the hoppy cobwebs.
That said, tomorrow night I’ll be looking for something enormous.
