Why do I seem to be the only person who doesn’t think too much of Brass Castle’s beer?
I have tried so many of them over the years and they all leave me disappointed.
Take this, their version of the All Together Project, raising funds for Hospitality workers, smells to me of lemon fresh washing up liquid and has a slick soapy feeling that leaves me with a slimy aftertaste of hand wash and, to be absolutely precise about it, that taste you get when you put your tongue against a battery.
I have no idea how else to describe it.
The result is a beer that however hard I try, I can’t find any malting, just an unpleasant bordering on acrid bitterness.
I poured it away.
