Long Itch Brewery Backscratcher (4.5%)

BackscratcherBackscratcher is a decent beer with a deep chestnut hue, like conkers or well worn brogues, and a malt that’s all biscuits and toffee, black pepper and a touch of coffee and burned wholemeal toast.
The hops don’t jump up and shout, but they’ve got enough bite from their little pointy teeth to nip you in all the right places with hedgerows and sapling wood and dandelions, making for a satisfyingly bitter finish.
The only problem is the smell.
It’s somewhere between two day old boiled cabbage and finding yourself ankle deep in a midden.
