COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lobsters, cockles, seaweed, sea salt, and sea herbs. One such idea has come from our love of shellfish - how can we emulate a lobster bisque. This inspiration came about from a brewery team ‘bisque off’ to see who’s was best and extended into an idea for a beer. So we set to the task of bringing the sea to your glass. Shellfish in the form of cockles and lobsters, foraged Kombu and dulse seaweeds and sea herbs seasoned with Cornish sea salt, saffron and star anise. There is a briny hit and rich smoothness which accentuates the taste of the sea. Each brewer ceremoniously cooked a lobster in the wort to make lobster rolls for a team lunch, the shells going back into the boil. Waste not want not! To help recreate the consistency of a lobster bisque we utilized a lot of wheat in the grist giving a full body and smooth texture and frothy foam, like the sea.

Tap. Clear, amber, small white head. Aroma of berries, thai prawn soup, crab stick, malts, wood, caramel, gingerbread spices. Taste is odd, hard to specify. A bit sweet, lightly tart, lightly bitter, slightly saltish behind. Prawn soup, crabs, maybe oysters, caramel, red berries, alcohol, caramel, wood. Medium to fuller body, moderately carbonated.
Oh, pretty odd and pretty good!

Draught at BeerGeek Bar. Clear, very pale amber colored. AROMA- very pleasant, sweet, touch of alcohol, something odd... something from sea. FLAVOR- slightly sweet, pleasant alcohol presence, and again, very good and very odd. Medium bodied.
Really good.

Where do you start with this? It aims to taste like lobster bisque. It tastes like ... lobster bisque. Seafood broth, salty seaweed, saffron, lobster. It's golden, with traces of white head. It has a medium body. And it smells, and tastes, like lobster bisque. Whether or not that is a good thing, I'm really not sure.

Tap @YNWA, Kolding. Pours clear golden with a small, staying creamy white head. Aroma has sweet malts, dusty, sugars, hay. Medium carbonation, fine dry and quite oily mouthfeel. Flavour has sweet malts, doughy, very fat maltiness, vinious and warming. Quite over the top.

Pours cloudy golden amber with low white head. Aroma of salt, cat food (???), lobster bisque... incredibly odd. Taste is very fishy and shellfishy... ugh! Body is light and smooth with soft carbonation.

ZodiacM (1260) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 26, 2017
LCI. Van de tap @DeKrommeHaring. Niet zozeer sour, als wel ziltig, een vloeibare fruit de mer. Niet voor iedereen denk ik.

BeerViking (4997) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2017
Tap at Mother Kelly, Vauxhall. Brown and hazy with a thin head, nose is malty-fruity with a touch of caramel. Body is dry-sweet and salty, complex, opening to a cross between barley wine and a salty-sweet Saison. Delicious.

jnitka (62) - Gdańsk, POLAND - JUL 13, 2017
Kolor złocisty, blady, bardzo delikatnie mętny, piana na początku cienka zredukowała się do zera po minucie. W zapachu ten homar jest. Serio. Poza tym jest troszke skórki cytryny i skórki chleba. W smaku też dominują owoce morza, coś jak świeże krewetki, poza tym dość mocno czuć umami, słody, troszke karmel. W ustach pozostawia posmak wody morskiej. I nie zartuje. taki słony, na granicy nieprzyjemnego. Poza tym konsystencja dość oleista.
