WIDMAR BROTHERS ALCHEMY ALE

Widmar Brothers Alchemy Ale. Brewed up in Portland, Oregon, there must be an interesting backstory about how this came to be on a supermarket shelf in Italy, but I guess I'll never find it out.

For an ale, it acts remarkably like a lager (so much so that Widmar recommends you drink it out of a lager glass), even though it tips in at 5.8% ABV and uses Munich, Vienna Extra Special, Pale and Caramel malts.

There are hints of citrus in the nose and the taste, some toasty flavours as well, but the highlight is the mouthfeel and the perfectly balanced carbonation.

It just needs a bit more strength in its flavours and some more oomph as the finish to do that mouthfeel more justice.

Adequate as an American Pale Ale, but not much more than that.

 

5/10
