Brewery: Lazy Magnolia
Beer: Timber Beast
The name is fitting. This thing is a BEAST! But not the kind of beast that sneaks up on you in the Siberian forest, rips out your jugular, and then feeds you to it’s young. It’s more like a tamed wolf, loyally at your side, but with a bit of a wild streak. It’s not a pet, more of a partner. Don’t underestimate it, there is a possibility it will turn on you.
This beer pours a light amber color with an orangish hue, white head, and has good head retention.
The aroma is of citrus, orange peel, grapefruit, and has a slight green, grassy smell.
The mouthfeel is smooth and silky.
The taste is surprising after the aroma. It is maltier than expected, but VERY well balanced. The taste is very sweet and there are hints of caramel.
The finish lights up your senses with a beautiful bouquet of hops, but not too much. The beauty of this beer is truly in the balance.
