ILLAWARRA BREWING HAWAIIAN COOKIE GOLDEN ALE

Illawarra Brewing Hawaiian Cookie Golden Ale. This is a collaborative brew between Illawarra Brewing and The Local Taphouse. The inspiration arose after one of the staff members from Darlinghurst’s Local Taphouse starred in this strange video:

I guess the idea was to brew a golden ale with tropical fruit and biscuity malt flavours. The hop bill includes Wai-iti, Amarillo, Citra and Galaxy. According to one of the brewers “it tastes nothing like a Hawaiian Cookie, but it is sessionable as fuck”.

Golden yellow colour, slightly opaque with a creamy head and a nice tropical fruit aroma.  Medium body, soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Tropical, passionfruit and citrus flavours with an underlying biscuit malt flavour. Finishes with a citrusy, slightly resinous, bitter finish. This is what Mountain Goat Summer Ale should have been like.

A sessionable beer with flavour.

 

8/10
