Brewccoly Bottom Plower Aroma and Taste
Brewccoly Bottom Plower poured out a light golden straw colour with a large fluffy white head on top. There wasn’t much information around about Brewccoly Bottom Plower but I suspect that it may be bottle conditioned as the amount of head coming off was a lot for a beer of this style. Perhaps I had used the wrong glass – the IPA glass tends to produce a livelier amount of beer – but there was some yeast sediment left in the bottle. Brewccoly Bottom Plower had a slight yeasty phenolic nose to it, with just a faint aroma of hops – nothing as bold as an American IPA or like other Belgian pale ales. The only hop aroma I could note off Brewccoly Bottom Plower was a slight noble, floral like one.
Because Brewccoly Bottom Plower had been bottle conditioned, even though it had been stored in the BeerTengoku Beer Fridge, it had a really lively and frothy texture to the body – lots of gas in it that exacerbated the phenols from the yeast. There was no discrernible level of bitterness to the beer, though a light toasted malt flavour came through with some Belgian funk, again the phenols from the beer. It was quite an easy-drinking beer to go through, but there was little flavour or excitement going on. The lingering phenols carried on into the aftertaste – ok but a bit bland.
Brewccoly Bottom Plower The Bottom Line
Brewccoly Bottom Plower lacks excitement or panache to get your attention.
