312. Brew Kettle 4Cs

Four C’s marks our second beer from Brew Kettle; previously on what we’re drinking, we’ve sampled Old 21. Four C’s has a clear amber color; the head is a thin white and it has a bready and malty nose with some light hoppy bitterness floating around in the background. Flavors start with a dry bready and biscuit-y malt sweetness before transitioning into a bitter middle that also has pine and resin hop flavors; the finish carries with it a fair amount of lingering bitterness mixed with grassiness and more of the resin hop flavor and a touch more of the dry breadiness. Four C’s has a medium to heavy body with moderate carbonation that has a bit of a bite; the mouthfeel is a bit sticky, but not enough to be completely overbearing. A good beer, but not outstanding; we do wonder if a fresher bottle would have more vibrant and lively hop flavors.

From the Brew Kettle website: “A malty pale ale with Cascade, Centennial, Columbus and Chinook hops creating a citrus and piney flavor and assertive bitterness.”

ABV: 5.0%
IBU: 55
