Review and Tasting

Sampled on 14/08/2017

Appearance

(sample bottle BBE Dec/19) Slight haze, golden amber with thick, moderately retentive white head with light lacing.

Aroma

Lemon juice and honey with oxidised pear fruit esters and flowering summer hedgerow.

Taste

Heavily carbonated, hugely flavoured with a strong alcohol back bone, but that strength does not overpower the palate. Pine hops balanced by honey sweetness with spicy black pepper yeastiness.

Aftertaste

Initially sweet, faintly strawberry finish fades with cracked black pepper.

Overall

This is a huge beer - even bigger than a pink elephant - with distinctive cracked black pepper spice, honeyed sweetness and spirituous alcohol.
