Pale Ale, Weird Beard Co., Hanwell, West London
I came to craft beer via the Citra hop. Citra is my favourite hop and I have repeatedly tasted it at its best. UK craft beer has some similarity with English sparkling wine and the gourmet street food burger scene in that there’s several people excelling at it and many band wagon jumpers. This beer is a full on citra band wagon jumper. Just to be sure, I had a bottle of The Kernel’s Citra PA alongside to compare and The Kernel’s version is different gravy. The Weird Beard Citra is rather 1 dimensional thin beer with the bitter side of Citra overshadowing it. There is no luscious mouthfeel, no tropical aromatics, no real complexity or length. 4.5/10
