A life just as ordinary

Just like you, but different

BeerClubNZ beer, this is  weekly treat,

More Moor !

More Moor !

Highly Sessionable ultra modern pale ale balancing rich British floor malt with modern British hops.

Best of British to you!

Session pale ale. Honeydew Melon, citrus, apricot & peach hops with a honey malt character. Light to let the hops shine

Unfined, Unfiltered, Unpasteurised and conditioned with live yeast.

So, What could possibly go wrong?

Malty hoppy on opening, which is promising.

Lovely golden pour with a nice white head that is always appealing, there is a lot stronger grass and malt aroma in the glass.

moor-unionhopThat’s really chock of flavour and juiciness, they’ve put a lot into this and got back a real explosion of flavour in the mouth, and it has a slightly dry finish too, which is unexpected for a beer that is at the lower end of the ABV scale really. Classy

Lots of malt forward in this is such a nice experience, absolutely a beer that I’d drink again and would love to have in the fridge as a staple, lovely easy drinking that leaves you wanting just a little more.

The pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 8 of its things from the thing. HAVe no qualms about saying this is very good, and I will talk to people about it when we talk about lower alcohol beer, and this one comes with the requisite taste and enjoyment that makes it worth. Lovely.

The double dip review

  • Where did I get it? BeerClub, but it should be in the good shops.
  • Am I enjoying it? It really hit the spot for me tonight
  • Would I have another? indeed I would
  • Would I share with a friend on a porch and set the world to rights? a Six pack of this and a conversation would be easy to have, nice tastes looks great, easy to have as a topic for discussion or just as an assistance to the jib jab.

Music for this:  Glass Animals” and ” How to be a Human Being” on Spotify

There are a few different types of blond ale. The first is the traditional “Canadian Ale”, an adjunct-laden, macrobrewed, top-fermented equivalent of the American Standard. The second is common in US brewpubs – a light starter ale, with marginally more hop and body than a macrobrew, fewer adjuncts, but still not a flavourful beer by any means. The British interpretation is easily the boldest, hoppiest blond ale rendition. Some of these can almost be considered American Pales they are so hopped up – very crisp, refreshing, with relatively low alcohol compared with their North American
