Lost and Found - Starlite Drive-In

Lost And Grounded - Starlite Drive-in

Friday and the end for me of a really good working week....not too say I'm not looking forward to hitting the bevvies tonight and vegging this weekend though. Tonight's choice was all me (for better or worse) and I went for the Starlite Drive-In Gose from Lost And Grounded.

First off, the can is quite a mellow blue opaque design of an old American classic car going to a Drive-in. Nothing amazing, but a smart image and visual on display. Unfortunately, next it was back to square one as it was foam heaven as I opened up my can, but I still got a light, sweet and mellow smell in the air. Upon first sip I definitely got a smooth sour hit, but nothing too strong and no pinching after taste which was a welcome surprise.

I really enjoyed the light Irish sea salt tingle on the tongue, something I haven't had before, but a really interesting and unique part of this drink. A dry-hop push is evident behind every swig, but the light and tart accompaniment is really balanced well and I thought was just brewed to perfection for his type of drink.

Compared to some of the sours I've had, this is by far the best, and has pulled back from the depths of 'sour' despair to look forward to more beers of this nature. Whether another one matches this brew quality I'm not sure, but I honestly can not recommend this enough for a lover or even vague liker of beer sours.

22 minutes in and only a few swigs to go, wish if got a couple of these bad boys! Anyway have a great weekend everyone and catch you Monday.

First smell after a kitchen can opening was very pungent floral scents with a feint hoppy background. Definitely got that classic pilsner taste to it with the hoppy feel, then an actual nice light and clean followup that carries through each sip. No big memorable flavours that stay on the tongue, but a decent enough drink to knock back.

First smell is just thick melted chocolate flowing out before that bourbon kick makes an appearance. My following excited swig didn't leave me disappointed as those smells were combined perfectly in my mouth before a light coffee edge showed up.

The following swig had a definite rush of those flavours and hops, but not as powerful as I'd expected, in fact quite a smooth delivery. As I went along there was definitely those vic secret and amarillo hops there, but more of constant buzz in the background.
