By The Horns Brewing Co. Samba King (5.1%)

Samba KingSamba King, brewed with Brazilian limes and lemongrass, smells like lemon curd.
It’s a deliciously sticky sweet smell, a smell that reminded me of Sunday tea time at my grandparents’ that it made me smile.
The malting is crunchy wafers, toffee and white pepper, and the addition of rye gives a good fleshy, earthy body, stopping this beer becoming an acidic citrus overkill.
That said, the Sorachi Ace, Galaxy and Citra combine to lift the top of your head off with super zesty, zingy, fizzy citrus delights.
But then the lemon and lime comes in to leave you with a lovely curd on warm toast buttery finish, albeit one that’s liberally sprinkled with sherbet.
