Craft Clerkenwell. Bottle thanks to Rune via ChrisO. Hazy gold beer, big off white head. Milky vegetal sourness. Dry finish. I like Mack - especially on tap from the brewery but this is awful. Love the name though!

Bottke shared at CBC - Clerkenwell, London. Big thanks to Chris for this gem. Pours cloudy, deep gold with a fine, creamy white head. Doughy pe makts in the nose, some pukey dough, hints of hay. Lots of hay and wheat and yeast in here, moderate sweetness. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet to fi ish, more yeasty dough, light straw. Nice and drinkable Great Britain hefe.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2014 Bottle. Almost see-through, golden in color and topped by a small, off-white head. Loads of diacetyl in the aroma, hiding most other scents. Lemon-sourish too. The flavor is almost equally bad, although less buttery and with less acidity than expected judging from the aroma. Medium body, quite dry and acidity. Don’t know what went wrong here, but I’m certain Mack can’t be proud of this one. Rating: 1-3-2-2-2-1.0. 130216

On tap. Had this one again, being very doubtful if it was a good idea, but I though, hey, it can’t be worse than the last time I had it. And it sure wasn’t. Gone were all the diacetyl and lemony sourness, and instead I found bubblegum, some banana, orange and lemon and a touch of spices, grass and caramel. Even some bitterness in the flavor. It was medium bodied and with a pleasant carbonation level, the flavor lasting for a good while, with some notes of chalk and yeast chiming in. Except for that, it was a fine brew that I without hesitation finished. 140531
