On tap at The Porter, Atlanta, GA, USA. Left over from a recent He’Brew/Shmaltz event I think.
Pour gives a crystal clear, orange body with some wispy lace and head which ultimately settles to give a thin white film on top of the beer. Looks nice, a bit like lucozade. Similar to the orginal.
Nose has a touch of liquor about it but many a clean edge of alcohol.
The tastes are malty and alcohol laden. Drinks very cleanly with a solvent-like finish that again is well defined. Not much depth here, the beer drinks a little like a liquer. Warming alcohol on the second and third gulp. Some estery fruits as well, but the beer still maintains a level of solvent above and beyond the fruit character.
I dunno, not much point to this methinks as the beer stands quite well on its own. This version seemed a lot less hoppy (in terms of much less grapefruit) but it did maintain some pretty good definition and clean lines. I’m happy with the original origin though.
