There’s a billowing cumulonimbus of from for a head as you empty this little can into your glass.
Unfined and unfiltered and brewed with a seven malt bill that includes my beloved Rye, this beer smells of toffee and pumpernickel.
Taking a mouthful you find an initial hit of fresh juicy hops.
A mixture of US and Australian varieties provide a big slap of zesty grapefruit, lime leaves, kiwi and satsumas, and underneath the malts build a shortcake and toffee platform.
It’s sticky and round and chewy and works well against the sharpness of the hopping, making for a beer with a long bitter finish edged by sweet brown sugar syrup.
