Just like you, but different
Ok so there’s me grinning like a loon. Presented in a magnificent 650ml bottle – that’s a lot!, I give you the “The Original Stoke Bomber Bohemian Ale”
From the Mccashin Family Brewery (Nelson, NZ), it’s listed as a Golden Ale. It’s ABV of 5.3% makes it a little stronger than most local beers.
It’s a lovely golden color in the glass, and has a very enticing hoppy smell on pour. To be fair I was fair gagging for this.
I was not disappointed as the taste is to match, it’s pleasant, pleasing and moreish. I thought it really was that good.
The label says “the finest natural ingredients, with no chemicals, preservatives, sugar, or artificial colourings or flavorings” and I think it’s a bit spot on. From the interwebtubes I found this nonsense
“delicate wheat and lightly roasted barley with the lively citrus and pepper flavours. Fully rounded mouthfeel and engaging honeyed malt complexity and spicy. Classic Bohemian.”
but what can I say other than yes. Goal!
On the completely arbitrary pdubyah-o-meter this is easily a 9 out of 10, the Mccashin crew have this one sorted.
Thanks to the fine people at the Wine Circle in Huapai who keep me on the straight and narrow!
