Urban Artifact Finn

What the brewers say

“Berliner pale ale. Radbod was the last of the ancient Frisian Kings. Finn, his mythical war helmet, granted invincibility to its wearer in battle. Respect your ancestors; share a Finn.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Light, clean lactic sourness with floral and lime notes dancing on top, presumably from the hops. Moderate Brettanomyces aroma up front with light peppery spiciness on the finish. It has some light funk but is not overly skanky.”

Flavor: “Light lactic sourness with a pleasant hop bitterness. Floral and lime play well off of the tartness, but that runs all over the sweetness of the malt. There’s a salty character and a light lemon and ripe-apple fruitiness. It finishes dry.”

Overall: “This is a well-done beer. The hops profile plays well with the sourness, and while the carbonation is high, it adds to the bitterness creating a nice complexity for a light beer.”
