This “non-linear pale ale” is yet another beauty from the impeccable Poppyland.
Fermented with yeast and bacteria, the beer pours a bright gold with a fluffy head and smells of country lanes, honeycomb and mushrooms.
Taking a swig you find a rich round caramel biscuit, white pepper and honey malt that’s soft and squidgy, and a bunch of bitter hedgerow and hazel leaf hops, all nettle tea, lemon zest and pithy mown lawns.
And there’s a little sour bitterness throughout, underscored by a subtle damp woodiness as you head to the tart and refreshing finish.
Oh, and it puts me in mind of a song.
