To Øl Reparationsbajer (5.8%)

ReparationsbajerMy first To Øl beer and it’s a soft and lovely experience, a Pale Ale packed with hops.
Amarillo, Centennial and Nelson Sauvin to be precise, and they’ve been used in a very nice and rather subtle way.
But we’ll come back to that.
Opening the bottle I was given a waft of ripe tropical fruit and jelly sweets.
Reparationsbajer pours a deep and satisfying orange marmalade witha  great big pillow of a head.
There’s a very good runny caramel malt complete with chunky biscuit bits and just a hint of apple juice.
And then there’s those hops.
They’re fresh and piquant, packed with lime zest and lemon juice, lots of penny sweets and all coated in a zappy tangy sherbet.
But they’re not shouty and I like that a lot.
It makes a nice change to drink a heavily hopped beer and to be spoken to politely instead of shouted at.
Mind you it’s pretty cutting in its superbly dry finish.
So a quietly spoken beer with a razor sharp wit then.
I like this a lot.
