Belhaven Brewery Inter-Galactic Dry Hop Lager Euro Pale Lager at 5% ABV | 30 IBU (C$3.20 at NLC Stavanger, 330 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 29-May-2017, reviewed 31-May-2017)

Appearance: clear medium gold with a short, short-lived fizzy head, no lacing. (2/5) Aroma: sweet caramel, lemony citrus, grainy and biscuity malt, floral. (5/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, mild bitter. (5/10) Palate: medium-light body, lively carbonation, sweetish finish. (3/5)

Wow – that’s even worse than their English Strong. I was cautiously optimistic that a “dry hop lager” with “bright fresh citrus” on the label might actually check more than one of the three boxes, but I guess not. Really not a very pleasant offering at all. Think I’ll put Belhaven on the list right next to Innis & Gunn – you know which list I mean… (10/20)
