I don’t think much of this at all.
The aroma is nice, full as it is of pine needles and red fruit, and the beer is a rather fetching copper in my glass.
The malting is alright too, it’s sticky and thick with toffee and pecans, pastry and biscuits.
There’s some decent hopping in here as well, packing a punch of redwood resin, grapefruit zest and lime leaves.
All sounds pretty good, right?
The problem is that there’s a nasty alcohol burn and something rather chemical tinged that kicks in at the finish and leaves an unpleasant aftertaste.
