Balance of aromas between the hops and malt is very well done
Malt flavours are pushed to the side by the strength of the fresh hops
Sessionable fresh hopped beer that does well to showcase the hops and the malt varieties used
Bomber Brewing have once again released their East Van SMaSH (Single Malt and Single Hop) in a fresh-hopped variant. The beer pours from the bomber bottle a clear golden colour with one finger of white head leaving some residual lacing on the glass. There is a strong floral aroma along with notes of citrus combined with some bready and biscuity tones from the malt. The flavour is of biscuit malts, mild resin and citrus pith, finishing off with a floral note along with mild and subtle bitterness. The malt is somewhat overpowered by the fresh hop notes in the flavour but is still present making this a light and delicious take on the fresh-hopped style.
