Chorlton Brewing Co. Hallertau Blanc Lager (5.7%)

Hallertau Blanc LagerI wasn’t expecting this at all.
I was under the impression that Chorlton only made sour and wild beer, but this is a sweet and crisp boozy lager that pours like peach juice and smells of caramel and gassy (yes, gassy) hay bales.
The malting is rich and round and gloopy, thick and creamy with toffee and Rich Tea biscuits and the yeast adds a gassy (there’s that word again) bread dough fug, while the hops are walnuts and grapefruit rind, English country lane greenery and a pinch of peppery spice which adds a kick to the sweet alcoholic finish.
Decent.
