When it comes to watching rubbish on the telly, I have to confess to quite liking Strictly. There’s the odd tasty lass in it, oh and Ann Widdecome. Not sure who the most fanciable one is yet, but Kara Tointon, Michelle Williams & Tina O’Brian all get my vote. If I was inclined to vote, which by and large I am not. I have a suspicion the votes of this household will be going to Gavin Henson, as the squeezes pick.
Sat on the sofa, scratching my nads and picking my nose I cracked open a bottle of Haviestoun Schiehallion Pilsner. (Worlds best apparently) A 4.8% grog. Named from a famous Scottish mountain and made with hersbruker hops, barley & wheat. Reading beer bottle labels, the sign of a geek if ever there was.
Pouring it out it had a fresh citrusy smell with a woody slightly microbrewed craft ale taste to it but without the gag reflex associated with micro brewed ale. This was followed by a more conventional lagered hop dryness. The dry bitterness rounded itself off nicely on the aftertaste into a nice little tongue tingle. Kinda good. I necked it quickly and finished with a satisfying belch. Decent lout.
This was all together more what to expect for a lager. A sharp crispness, light on the sweetness with a lingering loutish pleasure. Proper lout, Bang on. All decent stuff and very welcome.
