Purchased From: Tesco
Pouring and Look: Honey golden body with a white head.
Smell: Wheat and damp hay with a faint floral undertone.
Taste: A cereal wheat flavour that I’d expect to find in a weizenbier, this then opens up into a floral taste followed by a small amount of citrus hop bitterness at the end.
Thoughts: I really didn’t expect the wheat flavour from this lager. It wasn’t unpleasant just unexpected and it did work well with the floral flavours and citrus hops. Well balanced but not exceptional.
The perfect time to drink it: As this section is only here for me to be self-indulgent (the whole blog is actually) I thought I’d throw in a poem to mix it up a little.
Ginger and Lime
Sipping herbal tea, ginger and lime, Invigorating,
Apparently. Now three years out-of-date.
Given to me by my wife when she was expecting.
They taste like crap, no caffeine, too stubborn to chuck them.
I’ll drink them regardless, but only at work.
It started off with promise, different, unique, and new.
Through repetition time tarnishes, the taste of ginger gone,
Too long left underused, only bitterness remains.
Nothing to push a boundary. Routine quickly dulls
Everything, until just the shell remains.
