Review and Tasting
Sampled on 03/03/2017
(sample bottle BBE Oct/17) Clear, coppery golden amber with thin but retentive off-white head.
White bread and light citrusy hops.
Light to medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and attractive nutty bready and citrus notes.
Cleansing finish with crusty white bread and very subtle lemon zest.
The “lager re-born” statement on the label is perhaps a tad overstated, but Paolozzi is clean and easy drinking with attractive nutty bready maltiness, creamy mouthfeel and very light hops. This beer’s label is also rather slick and helps it standout.
