Howling Hops Brewing Co. Meanwhile Uptown (6.7%)

Only yesterday I spent my first couple of hours in a pub for five months and tried this beer from keg.
I thought it was OK, but found the Cryo Citra a little too strong from my liking, making the finish feel a little acrid.
But the same beer in a can is just right.
Gone is the stupefyingly sharp eye watering lemon washing liquid hit of the keg, and instead you find a beer that is packed with lemon sherbet, lime zest and piles of green herbal leaves.
The malt body is soft and sweet, with caramel coated doughnuts, wafer biscuits and lashings of runny honey that creates a solid brown sugar syrup body over which all these Cryo hops – Azacca as well as Citra – do their thing.
Great in a can.
