Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BgThang on 01-04-2012

Named to commemorate a night when the Naivasha House in Kenya was shaking so strongly Del thought it was an earthquake. It turned out to be a hippo from lake Naivasha scratching itself against the house. Scratchin’ Hippo is a complex malty beer low bitterness, with an earthy character approximately 6.8% ABV. Goes well with hearty rich foods like steak, roasts or beef stew.

750ml bottle poured into a pint glass.
L: Hazy reddish brown.
Thick tan colored head that dissipates quickly, leaving a lingering layer of foam at the top of the glass.
S: Caramel and toasted grain
T: Rich and malty taste.
Ends dry, with a nice toasted grain flavor.
F: Medium body.
Carbonation is present without being overwhelming.
O: Tastes much lighter than it looks, but full of flavor. This beer would be great with lunch or at the end of the work day, just before dinner.
