Clifford Brewing Co. Devil’s Punchbowl – India Pale Lager at 4.8% ABV | 35 IBU

Clifford Brewing Co. Devil’s Punchbowl India Pale Lager at 4.8% ABV | 35 IBU (C$3.66 at NLC Stavanger, 473 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 17-Mar-2019, reviewed 17-Mar-2019)

Appearance: cloudy pale straw with one finger of rocky white head, good retention and moderate soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: citrus, grainy and bready malt, grass, DMS. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium-light body, moderate carbonation, off-dry slightly astringent moderate bitter finish. (3/5)

Not bad, but a bit thin and astringent, and a hint of DMS becomes ever more apparent as it warms. On the up side, it’s light enough that you can easily pound it back before it warms, so problem solved, I guess? (13/20)

6.5/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com
