Another super little beer from this new Birmingham brewery, OCT pours a rich gold and smells of Juicy Fruit chewing gum and peaches.
There’s a solid caramel and spun sugar malt, it’s round and chewy with honey and brown bread, and it sits heavy and mouth filling right in the heart of the beer.
The hops swoop about above all this malty goodness with a sharp bitterness.
You find lemon zest and orange marmalade, lime and grapefruit, peaches and mango before the finish hits you with a bone dry steely herbal bitterness that’ll have you reaching for your next mouthful.
