Future Proof

Mandatory “Future Proof” Facts

I may no longer be able to fly to America secondary to COVID-19, but that doesn’t stop me from sampling a beer collabed with an American brewery, this being Modern Times, based in Sand Diego. It pours a transparent orange, similar to the accents on the can, and bright citrus-tropcial aromas come straight from the can. The beer perfectly fits in my Teku glass. It has a modest carbonation and a shallow white foam head.

The beer is bright, zingy with citrus and flavours of lime, lychee and mango. This contrasts the sweet biscuit malt base, mixing sweet with tart citrus twist. It’s a refreshing, cleansing beer, which neutralises the palate. It might not be the most perfect time to sample this beer – I think this beer would be most appreciated on a summer afternoon-evening, though as I reflect and anticipate the upcoming events – briefly these concerns are washed away into the distance.

Diagnosis: 3.75/5, “Future Proof”, sweet, tart and clean flavours. Something I could certainly enjoy by the growler full.
