Year of New Beer: Call Me Maurice, DuClaw Brewing Co (MD)

Written By: Dion on 01/14/2021

I haven't had a beer from this brewery in a long time. This one reminded me why. Peach and apricot are pleasant enough on the nose, with hints of wheat bread and a trace of herbal hops. Tart on the tongue, coming off like Jolly Ranchers. This by itself would probably be OK, but there's something about the underlying hop bitterness and lactose that just doesn't work for me. My complaint with DuClaw has always been that every flavor seems a bit forced and artificial, and this one is no different. Your mileage may vary, but I didn't care for this at all.
