Beerd Brewery – Monacle
Abv: 5.3% IBU: – English IPA
The Beer: Infused malted-vanilla with a slight hint of nuts; clear copper in colour, plenty of bubbles, frothy head that stays; really hoppy with a long lasting bitter taste, some nuts and hints of vanilla-orange ; clean crisp to the mouth, medium bodied, some alcohol warming and bitterness, smooth across the tongue and all round the mouth.
Thoughts: From the aroma I was expecting something a lot different, this has a bitter hit and pleasant, long lasting hoppy flavour. As it warms more complex flavours come out and the bitterness settles. This is my type of beer, really good.
