 Polly's Brew Co - 'Who Knew?'

Polly's Brew Co - 'Who Knew?'

Stressful flat renting related day was broken up with a great visit to @electricbearbrewing to meet some of the folks behind the magic! (Bit of bonus stuff posted earlier...) James gave me this beer to give a go as it's new in stock this week and definitely one we're eager to check out. First off, the can design is a lot of linear rectanglular patterned pastille colours with the renowned droplet in the centre. Certainly gets the attention just enough.

A very thick citrusy and fruity smell came from the can on the first opening, and a peak into the gap showed a beautiful hazy liquid. Next the taste...and it came with a punch. Those citrusy flavours were thrust into the mouth with a huge hoppy hit and rush across the tongue, before a sharp, bitter after-taste showed itself at the end. The thick volume didn't carry through quite as much as I'd hoped, and the hoppy hit and powerful bitter finish was just too imbalanced for me to be honest. I wanted a bit more juice and different flavours going on before the cut and thrust. However, if you want a drink that packs a punch and doesn't leave you wanting a caffeine like pick me up, then this will tick your boxes.

Cheers everyone!

The people trying to preserve the idea of real ale are just trying to preserver an idea of their youth. Just maybe in 40 years time i will be an even grumper old man complaining about how craft beer is the real beer!
