Bitter Unicorn Tears
Born in Clayton, North Carolina, Bitter Unicorn Tears is an India pale lager brewed by the Deep River Brewing Company. The 16oz can features a weeping, rainbow sneezing, orange haired blue unicorn. It's listed at a punchy 7.2% alcohol.
It's a hazy, golden brew. It poured with a nice cap of white head. It has a slightly spicy, floral hops nose. The beer is quite dry and a bit yeasty. Less bitter than I expected, but still modestly hoppy, with a floral bent.
While the best thing about Bitter Unicorn Tears was its name and packaging, it was a pretty decent little offering. Nice flavour and strength, but a little thin.
Rating: 7.0 out of 10.
