minutemat (5662) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2014
75cl bottle @ The 2nd Shrewsbury Bottle Share, courtesy of Paulo. Very hoppy from the off with a eager bitterness squeezing the life out of those tropical hops. Its tongue numbing dryness gets a bit much though and I would’ve welcomed a bit more fruitiness. Still, a good introduction to this brewer for me.

Final beer of the second Shrewsbury Bottle Share on 24th Feb 2014: cheers Paulo for bringing this brew along for the four of us the split.
A red hue to this amber bodied beer, on top a well tanned crown.
Intense floral hop nose with citrus notes in the background vying for attention with some semi-sweet molasses.
The hops carry on into the taste, again with a citrus undertone to the bitter, dry front: the malts creeping into the taste later and giving a mini balance to the otherwise prevailing hop content.
A good beer to finish on, tests your taste buds and leaves you wanting more: a very interesting brew, hides it’s alcohol well within the flavours.

Bottle. 22oz. A dense, off-white head forms over an unclear, amber colored body. The aroma has a lovely maltyness blending with the citrusy, piney hops. Caramel hints. It’s quite bitter in the flavor, with caramel maltyness and resins and pine cones. Full body and a pleasant carbonation level. Lasting finish with a lot of bitterness. Overall, a really nice one, although a bit one dimensional bitter. Yeah I know it’s malty too, but still. 131231 Meilby (11517) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2013
