Beer Review 80 // Flat White by Alphabet Brewing Co.
Name: Flat White
Style: White Breakfast Stout
Brewery: Alphabet Brewing Co.
Commercial Fluff: Cold brew coffee, milk sugar and a huge amount of oats almost makes this beer a justifiable alternative to breakfast. You Won’t Believe It’s Not A Dark Beer!
Label: Nothing too crazy, looks like they are trying to achieve a coffee shop vibe.
Pour: Dark orange pour, with a lively and healthy looking white cap. Head dies away to nothing surprising quick.
Aroma: Impressive hit of the coffee and a subdued vanilla aroma.
Taste: Unsurprisingly coffee up front and centre. With a sweetness I assume comes from the lactose. Not as creamy as I was hoping for with the mention of lactose and oats in the making of the beer. Very carbonated as well giving it a lightness on the tongue. Finish was not bitter at all which surprised me.
Would I buy it again: For my first time from this brewery I have to say I'm impressed. Just wish I could experience more from them over here in Canada.
