COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
bottled,special
This 5.2% complex yet unpretentious ale is our birthday salute to Moshi Moshi Records; at 15 years old they’re not old enough to drink it, but if they were, we know they’d love it as much as we do. A rich biscuity malt base takes the bassline, with the odd caramel pop and slap. Heavy hop riffs play on top; resinous resonance from the rhythm guitar, and the bitter notes we love so much on lead.
That’s enough of the musical metaphors. Stick a record on, sit back, and enjoy this beer.

Idiosynkrasie (4025) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - OCT 20, 2014
330ml bottle. Slightly cloudy amber colour with average, thick, frothy to creamy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Hoppy aroma samples its dominating sounds from the herbal, slightly soapy, menthol, eucalyptus, woodruff repertoire, citrusy, piney and resinous off-beats, caramel and biscuit malt bassline (exactly!). Taste plays the same melody, some more piney and citrusy accidentals, the re-mix is overall less hop dominated, you may notice some additional nuttily notes from a coy fiddler. Modern, aslant, disharmonious.

larsga (6276) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2014
Medium offwhite head. Hazy reddish amber body with little particles. Spicy gooseberry aroma with mealy earthy notes. Dryish resiny chemical taste with spicy cardamom notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish resiny wooden gooseberry aftertaste with cardamom notes. Good, apart from the strange spicy stuff. (0.33l bottle, from Fish & Beer, Copenhagen.)

adster (432) - HUNGARY - SEP 30, 2014
Tört fehér habja alatt mély-narancs színű, malátás és amolyan citrusosan komlós illatú főzet húzódik meg. Könnyed, nyári ital hangulatát idézi, közepesen testes és átlagos szénsavtartalmú, ízre gyantásan komlós, grépfrútosan kesernyés, kekszesen malátás kicsengésű, fűszeresen száraz végszavú sör. Egyszerű, de nagyszerű.
