Recent Tasting Notes

Krombacher Pils (13/20)
Not bad. A full bodied pils that doesn't rely on higher than normal alcohol to get its point across. Looks and smells textbook with a golden amber hue, fizzy white head and a wheaty grainy nose. Palate is quite sharp with what seems to be a serious aniseed bitter edge. Has a tinge of sweetness in there as well but essentially this is a dry pils. Good fizz levels for summer drinking.

St Helier Pear Cider (8/20)
Dead simple and sweet friendly style. You would struggle to find 5% abv here, let alone 1%! Lots of lifted confectionary pear fruits across the nose and palate. Just the smallest element of bitterness on the finish. Very commercial crowd pleaser style. (2 5 4 3 8)

St Helier Apple Cider (7/20)
As per the pear version this is very much a hit and giggle style. Soft confectionary fruits although a hint of bitterness and perhaps licorice firms the flavours up a touch. Hard to believe there's alcohol in this drink.
