Ölbeat 250: Magic Rock Cannonball

Brewery: Magic Rock Brewing
Country: England 
Style: India Pale Ale
Abv: 7,4 %
What about the beer?
Colour is hazy light orange. Aroma has grapefruit, orange and mango. Taste begins with biting piny and bitter grapefruit. Fresh grapefruit-lemon juice takes over with a piny twist and some sour candy. Towards the end bitter pine and grapefruit with a bunch of sweet orange get on top. Aftertaste has fresh grapefruit-lemon bitterness and fruity piny dryness.

Excellent super-drinkable fruity India Pale Ale. Fresh citrus lead by grapefruit and strong pine all the way. Simple but solid. Right kind of first impression by Magic Rock.


Bring your own booze, bring your own bombs... What's the difference? Huge, of course, when you think about it. But nevertheless, despite the critical message of the song, I matched it with this beer explosive. Call it playing with a serious matter if you like.
