Love pepper beers and Evil Twin makes a good one. Nice bitey notes on the aroma and a cracked pepper finish on the palate. Delightful.

650 ml bottle, Chalice shows a hazy cloudy gold with very little head. Aroma is Belgian yeast, light fruit and clove.
I really like the yeast profile here, clove, light grassy notes and a subtle pepper in the finish. The pepper compliments the yeast. Nice zesty mouthfeel. This beer isn’t about hops it’s about the yeast. Nice.

Bomber shared by Adrien. Pours orange beige with a few white bubbles. Aroma is molasses, wet cardboard, a hint of banana. Flavor matches the aroma, with pepper in the finish. Nice.

Backlog rating. Keg at CBC Clapham, Craft 100, London. It pours a hazy yellow color with a medium white head. Aroma is funky and herbal, with notes of brett, black pepper, vegetables, wood, ripe apricots. Taste is lightly tart with a bretty peachy sweet note and more peppercorn notes. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Overall, interesting flavour profile although I’m not the biggest fan of peppers in beer

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A nice unique take on a blond. Pours an ugly clear yellow with a white head. Smells of citrus, apple and pepper. Taste is more basic, with lots of pepper and maybe ginger, and a pilsner-like finish. Had in the bottle.
