Just like you, but different
So straight to a Can of Harrington’s “The Rogue Hop Organic Pilsner”. In a can!
“.. brewed using organic malt and hops.. and put in a can “
Brewed with Organic Malt and Hops to the style of a Bohemian Pilsner with our own Rogue Hop to give it an exciting strong yet lingering hop finish.
A great one for a mouth feel challenge!
What could possibly go wrong?
A can, I’m a bit excited. I should get out more. I’m sort of expecting this to be different to the bottle I just had not a short time ago.
There is still something base about the ke-chink of opening a beer.
Hop aroma is deeper. In the glass same pale pour, decent head, and a real bloom of hop grassiness.
I also have to say that he head was less, a lot less,
Hop aroma is loud on the nose, and again this doesn’t translate at the same level into taste profile, but again this seems dialled up a tad in the can.
Then I got a metallic/plastic twang thing? I’m not sure that was supposed to be there, it’s a bit odd. I’m going to put that down to the fear of canned beer though. It was a bit odd. I was a bit miffed.
Nowhere near the same lacing as the bottle version. The taste profile is different to. Lots more tart grassiness (which might have been that odd taste I thought was something else, perhaps).
Much different to the bottle version then, I should have done a side-to-side but then that would require a bit of planning and thinking, neither seem to have been in supply when I thought I’d have a beer this afternoon.
I’m in my head trying to make sense of this, there can’t be much difference in the process of bottle and cans, he said, no expert, but there is, and they get delivered differently. Cans are supposed to be closer and more accurate to the way intended, are they not. In which case I’m a bit of an enigma as the bottle version seemed better to my taste than this.
I warmed, the metallic/plastic thing didn’t go away, it wasn’t the hops, I think, who knows I’m not an expert.
The pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 7 a of its things from the thing. I don’t like the can version as much as the bottle version which seems a lot softer and balanced. This has a sharper hop edge that dominated and for me isn’t that welcoming.
The double dip review
Musically then, I’d changed by this time, and moved on to “Elbow”
This is McGregor from an album called “Dead in the Boot ” listen here
Just well written lyrics. Or this “Some Riot”
