Breakfast Beer Tasting: Titanic Iceberg
The basics: Iceberg can be very refreshing on cask, so I was looking forward to comparing it with the bottled version. It’s 500ml, 4.1% and comes in a clear bottle. It poured clean golden with good carbonation and a tight off-white head. Lots of lemon and citrus fruits in the aroma.
Taste: Light and very quaffable. There’s refreshing lemon and grapefruits tones along with some spicy wheat. The Cascade hops come through to give it a very satisfying dry edge.
Finish: Lingering and dry.
Conclusion: An excellent beer. It doesn’t quite have the zesty hop punch of the cask version, not that I would really expect it to, but if you enjoy the cask version, then you will appreciate this. One for the beer rack.
