Another brew from The Badlands

Heaps Hoppy Kiwi Pale

Pours a very pale, slightly cloudy amber The head is small and fades to a thin lacing.

First sip: Mild malts and citrus flavours almost overwhelmed by hops. The hops flavours are not overly strong but linger for some time. Mouth-feel is thin, slightly astringent, with a mild carbonation tingle on the tongue.

I was expecting the "WAH! HOPS!" hit of Sierra Nevada Torpedo , but no, this is quite mild by comparison. There is a lot of hops in it - Heaps hoppy! - but maybe the Kiwi hops are a milder variety. I wouldn't normally enjoy a beer like this...

but...

It's 43C/110F degrees outside. THIS BEER IS EXACTLY WHAT I NEED. It goes down massively easily and provides hydration, nutrients, and sugars. This beer is GOOD FOR YOU. I am really, really enjoying this brew. I know the weather is affecting my judgement but I don't care. . I wish I had a six-pack.
