Bloody Mary Pilsner – Storm Brewing, 5% ABV – 1L., (Vancouver, BC, Canada)

-?!!! Bloody mary in a beer?! Lol what, this sounds very interesting… I’m a fan of Bloody mary’s and Caesar FYI. Brewed with tomato juice, limes and Thai chilies.

  • Style: (tomato, lime, thai chilies) Flavoured Lager
  • Taste: Tomato undertone lime crisp barley malt gentle spicy
  • How much: $8 – 1L, bring your own bottle (March, 2015)
  • Do I love this enough to drink it again: no
  • Would I recommend this to beer aficionados: it’s not bad at all

Visual: (growler fill) Pours translucent orange with a reddish hue, thin ringed micro retention, non-sticky, a few steady streams in the center.

Nose: tomato juice, squeezed lime (lvl-6)-pungency

Attack: veggie undertones, incoming lime oil

Mid-palate: very crisp bite, (lvl-5)-sweetness, (MAIN) lime juice, sweet barley malt,

Finish: tomato aftertaste, gentle lingering spicy kick, subtle bitter hops.

Summary: Surprisingly done well and very drinkable. A good balance of sweet-spicy-aromatic without any unpleasant flavours. Probably not for all but I love tomato juice so I welcomed this.
