Dim Sum Beer is brewed especially to be drunk with Asian food.
It just happens that this evening we’re having a curry and though I know that’s a bit mix and match, a bit of a Pan-Asian fusion, or some other such nonsense spouted by wannabe celebrity chef types, it seemed a reasonable time to open this little 330ml bottle of goodness.
The malts in here came as a big surprise.
I wasn’t expecting anything so toffee and resin heavy, but this is heaped with both and makes for a rather sticky experience.
Likewise I was expecting the lemongrass and coriander to have a much bigger presence, but they’re both little hints in the background, just prickling away and teasing you instead of hitting you hard.
The hopping is citrus sharp and very crisp and leads you to a rather nice honey rich, bittersweet finish that works very well with the hot spicy chicken and rice I’m currently gorging on.
