Bude Brewery Summerleaze (4.7%)

On taking my first swig of this Golden Ale from Bude I thought, “well, it’s alright for its style. It’s drinkable.”
But by the third or fourth mouthful I started to find a rather unpleasant aftertaste building which had me pouring the beer away before I got to the end.
There’s all the usual toffee and biscuits, honey and straw malts and the usual snap of hedgerow greenery and subtle lick of aniseed from the hops.
But in the finish there lurks a stainless steel chemical thing that burns away all the other flavours, leaving the beer feeling watery and metallic.
Perhaps it’s the bottling?
