Hopping Mad Brewery Balmy Days (3.9%)

Balmy DaysThis is the kind of beer I could sit and drink all evening.
It’s a good “night out having a chat but needing to be up in the morning” beer.
It’s light and soft and gentle enough to make for a good session, but it also contains enough interest to keep you, well, how do I put it? Interested.
The aroma is pear juice and garden flowers, and the malting is a delicate flaky pastry with a caramel and walnut filling.
Personally I’d like the hops to be a little more upfront, especially from a brewery calling themselves Hopping Mad, but that’s not to say there’s nothing here.
The hops are green grass and peppery fresh herbs, and they’re nice, I’d just prefer them a bit louder.
In the finish you get a honeyed bitter lemon dryness that makes you want to drink more.
Very nice indeed.
