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.

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.

LCI. Van de tap @DeKrommeHaring. Niet zozeer sour, als wel ziltig, een vloeibare fruit de mer. Niet voor iedereen denk ik.

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.

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.

Many thanks to Martin for bringing from London. Strange sourish nose. The beer starts salty grainy bitter with a very salty strange undertone. Fresh, bitter, grainy, but not fishy ;)

Lobster, sea food, sweet malts, sea weed, sweet grain malts, bread, molasses. Clear gold, small, creamy, white head. Light sweet. Dry, sweet malts, light, savoury flavours, soft carbonation, medium bodied, more lobster. Stunning beer, but I bet loads of people will hate it… but not me. Keg at CBR17, Shoreditch.

Keg at Small Bar, Bristol. Clear amber. Nose is grassy, malty, something odd but not much. Taste is odd, salty, something I cannot describe, a bit fishy. Nah.

AshtonMcCobb (6670) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 20, 2017
Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - cloudy orange with a nice lacy head. Nose - berries, aniseed (like patxaran) and light salt. Seaweed comes through and there’s a general feeling umami. Taste - more red fruit, umami flavours again, salt and tang. Palate - medium bodied with a tangy texture and a long dry tangy finish. Overall - the main thing I’m getting is red fruit, but the bisque ingredients add to the depth and the complexity.
