Low ABV disillusionment!

28 May

Today I’m a little dissatisfied with the beer world. After enjoying a lovely beer from the Kernel Brewery in the garden, and then another, I found myself feeling a bit skew whiff (if that’s how you spell it!). This narked me somewhat as I would have like to have continued out there, drinking lovely beer after lovely beer until the sun went down unaffected. It seems to be a sad fact of life that if you really want to hit those heights in your beer, alcohol is necessary. I’m not 16 any more. I don’t drink beer (more or less my only vice these days) just to get swerved up. I like to enjoy it and when I do it doesn’t seem fair that I have to stop.

If I had one wish it would be that someone would brew a really low ABV beer that tasted magnificent and different. Yeah! You can keep your world peace, cutting greenhouse emissions and cures for yellowfoot!!

I might feel differently tomorrow….

      Thanks for that list. I’ve not had any of them. In fact I’ve never come across them at all. It’s a shame they are not so readily available here. Some time back I remember enjoying a pint of Welton’s Pride n Joy, thinking it was quite nice for the strength and more recently Fullers Mighty Atom at 2.8%. Neither were sit up and take notice beers really, just quite nice for the strength.

      Hello. Ah yes I’ve heard of that one and even seen it. Not too difficult to get hold of either. I shall do my best to get hold of some.

Whatcha reckon?
