London Beer Factory Mezcal Margarita 8.8% (330ml bottle)
Wild Ale Refermented on Agave Nectar, Infused with Smoked Chipotle & Lime Zest. Alc 8.8% Vol
A two barrel blend of smoky wild ale that was refermented on agave nectar and chipotle before being infused with lime zest just prior to bottling. This beer, even for us, is pretty mental and we were unsure how well all of these processes and flavour infusions would come together. Fortunately luck favours the bold and feel this beer is definitely something special.
The aroma is rich with a mix of smoke and spice from the base beer and fermented chipotle. The flavour starts limey and moves into a funky agave sweetness that reminds of an ice cold Tommy’s margarita before fading into a complex background of char, smoke, and subtle warmth from the peppers.
