Alechemy Brewing Co. Ritual (4.1%)

RitualHave Alechemy started filtering their bottles or have they always done it and I’ve not noticed until now?
Certainly the profile of this Pale Ale has all the hallmarks of a beer filtered to within an inch of its life and the result is that it’s more than a little bit disappointing.
There’s caramel and apple juice, a hint of butterscotch and some lemony hops with a light hedgerow foliage tang.
But there’s also an odd almost chemical tone to the aftertaste that made it quite difficult for me to finish the bottle.
If Alechemy have always filtered then this is just a bad bottle, but if they have only just started and this is the result then they may need to go back to the drawing board.
