The third beer tasted at the Piglet 2 Mini-Beerfestival, Leyton, London, 24/02/06. Served by a handpump. Dark straw to golden colour, great clarity with a thin but tightly foamy head; low carbonation naturally~~ Chinook’s extra-fragrant and flowery hoppyness is well mixed with longan-flower honey aroma, with but a slightly tart and sweet hint in the background. Maltiness plays the second fiddle. Juicy hops and flowery on the palate upfront, supported by a stream of very soft yet also chewy pale-malts; a settled barley-tea like aftertaste mingles with more crispness from the hops in the finish--delicious~~ A very smooth and hoppy bitter this is, though in the very end the texture thins out a bit. The barley tea-ish aftertaste is the key to make this bitter slightly more special than other traditional bitters or pale ales, and I suppose it’s partly the work of using Chinook hops in this brew. Very enjoyable on cask!!
