Kelpie Seaweed Ale

500 mL bottle, $3.99 World Market, Atlanta, GA, USA. (All over the rest of Atlanta too).

If you are wondering what a Seaweed flavored Ale drinks like, the answer is that (this one at least) drinks like a light bodied, brown ale without the malt.

Pours Porter black/brown with a nice head and some decent lacing. A good fruity, alcohol type aroma that is frankly better than the taste. The body (or lack of it) lets this beer down. Thin and a little unsatisfying. A wee bit dry and earthy too.

Finish is an unusual combination of organic soil (maybe that is the seaweed?) and slight stout like bitterness.

All in all I’m glad I tried it, and it is a bit of a weird combo, but this is strictly a one off for me.
