Another week, another round of great beer. We've got some Yeastie Boys, Magic Rock, Beavertown and Sierra Nevada coming your way.
First up is the Yeastie Boys Gunnamatta. A tea leaf IPA that uses Earl Grey Blue flower tea in the brew, its nose is of tea, citrus and some tropical fruit. Taste is similar to the nose, but with the tea a little more prominent and some bitter orange. At 6.5% its not a session choice for most but with notes of iced tea its definitely the best way to soak up the last of the summer rays.
Secondly is a real Black Heart favorite, we love our sour beers and this is a truly great one, Magic Rock's Salty Kiss. A traditional german Gose brewed with gooseberries, sea buckthorn and sea salt. Aroma is salty, with mild gooseberry. Flavor is fruity, citrus and more gooseberry. The sourness isnt overwhelming so if you've never tried a sour this is a great starting beer. 4.1% Also available in cans.
Next up, a real heavyweight, Beavertown's Smog Rocket. This smoked porter comes in at 5.4% and has a smokey nose with some dairy and roasted coffee. Flavour follows that with the roasted malts taking center stage a little more. If smokey beers are your thing, you can't go wrong.
We finish with Chico's finest, Sierra Nevada. We've got our lucky mits on their 11.5 Plato Session IPA. Fruity malt aroma thats quite sweet. Flavour is big on the floral hops and citrus, with a little pine and some bread. 4.5%
