Beer – #19 in a series – Belhaven Twisted Thistle

I was of the mind to be having a bit of a curry, and having ordered I stopped at the bottle shop and picked up a couple of bottle of the Belhaven Twisted Thistle IPA.

And I’m sort of in-between about it. As normal a pinty sized bottle  and this one is 5.3% ABV, so I was prepared for something nice.

Made with Scottish grown malt and American and English hops. A zesty aroma leads to a medium bodied ale with loads of hop flavour and a satisfying finish

Let me tell you it has an individual taste, and I’m still not sure about it. It is tangy, it has a distinctive nose and not an unpleasant taste all-round. Best described has having a twang.

And it’s a pleasant beer color.

However in the big scheme of things, and since the competition is getting a bit tough on the pdubyah-o-meter this is a 7 out of 10. I’m not really a big fan, however I’d arm wrestle you if there was only one left and we both wanted it.

The Wine Barrel Mairangi Bay, thank you, and Chand Indian restaurant, for your consistent nommery.

      I think you’ll approve of them, they’re tasty without being challenging.
