The Consett Ale Works White Hot (4.1%)

White HotThis is a rather nice Pale Ale, though it has a couple of weird things happening.
It pours a light straw with a big fluffy head and it smells of gassy grassy yeasty flowers and more than a hint of cauliflower.
Not unpleasant, but definitely, weirdly, cauliflower.
The malting is super light wafers and honey and lettuce leaves.
I’m not even joking, it’s the other weird thing.
Fresh out of the ground and slightly metallic lettuce leaves.
The hops are gently bitter flower petals and lemon juice, and the finish is clean and crisp.
That’s clean and crisp and tinged with cauliflower and lettuce leaves.
Good but weird.
