In the light of refreshing Summer days Steamworks Brewing Company has released the Killer Cucumber Ale. Sold in 6 packs the Killer pours from the bottle as a golden-yellow colour topped with a thick finger’s worth of lightly lacing head. The beer smells strongly of cucumber with a maltiness to it. The aroma is quite refreshing and crisp but a tad odd at the same time. The flavour is light but has a strong cucumber infusion to it. An base that tastes somewhat like a blonde ale is masked by the big cucumber tones. The cucumber flavour mixes well and is quite nice but is rather intense. If you are a big cucumber fan then you will not be disappointed by the Killer Cucumber Ale from Steamworks Brewing Company!

Size – 6 x 355ml

    Dunno if you tried this beer chilled. If chilled, the cucumber adds to the bitterness wich i find is way refreshing. Nice beer, even though i am nit a fan of beer infused with foreign ingredients
