An intriguing offering. On-tap at the brewery taproom. Tasted 23 May 2013, reviewed from notes.
Pours medium amber, hazy. Brought with little head, but excellent retention and lacing. Little streams of bubbles rising up.
Smell is faint, gently sweet and lightly herbal with just the softest touch of ginger. As it warms, I get more ginger.
Taste is spicy/bitter. Waves of ginger zip and herbal tincture-like bitterness. Not sure what nettle tastes like, but I'd guess this is it. Interesting, but it needs something to balance it, something more than spice and zip and zing.
Feel adds to the spicy blast. Medium-light, prickly carbonation, lasting.
Pretty good, but it's stuck between balanced and over-the-top. I want either more potency from the two named ingredients, or more counterbalance. The bitter/herbal/spice combo is interesting, though.
Serving type: on-tap
