COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brutal combines Oregon hops with English Malts. The Oregon grown Crystal hop is a triploid variety developed from the German Hallertau aroma hop variety with contributions from Cascade, Brewers Gold, and Early Green. Crystal is the only hop used in brewing Brutal and it provides a massive amount of aroma without dry-hopping. The English malts used are floor malted Pipkin (a mellow cross of Maris Otter and Warboys, from an English company called Beeston), Cara Vienna and Cara Wheat.

McNeillR (1088) - SCOTLAND - APR 27, 2014
Vibrant dark golden, light haze and decent greyed white head providing a solid lacing as it dissipated. Floral, sweaty banana and unripened orange. Spritzy Seville oranges, clean and rich bitterness throughout. Things got earthy and faint citrus and more quenchable later on. Dusting of light creamy malt and a wee drip of syrup sweetness. Very presentable fine and moderate carbonation. Finishes an exposed, thorny bitterness with lime and a resonating sharp linger. Tidy stuff all in, and smashable enough from the big bottle.

Bottle, The Beer hive, Edinburgh
