Just like you, but different
Thornbridge Mirrors it’s BeerJerk NZ beer of the week, and this week the music match is already made .
sherbet and citrus
4.5% ABV in a 500ml bottle, 135 calories a serve size, 1.78 standard drink units of beer in NZ is this.
Brewed by Thornbridge in the style that is of American Pale Ale and that’s from Bakewell, England
Beer and music are a great combination and in Ed Cosens, from Reverend & the Makers, you have an accomplished musician with a great passion for home brewing.
After the success of working with Ed on a Reverend Summer Ale and an American Brown, we have come together for a third time to celebrate the launch of the band’s new album, ’Mirrors’.
The beer pours a bright gold in colour with a tropical aroma and flavours of grapefruit, sherbet and citrus.
So, What could possibly go wrong?
Aroma is of English beer, and some heavy fruit note thing.
Taste is really unexpected and really big, like big big.
This combines a lot things that are desirable, bitterness for instance, this is wonderfully bitter, by which I mean just about enough and not too much, bitter but not for the sake of bitterness.
Aromatic too, a lovely nose on this, which is usually applied to wine drinking right ?
In fact this is beer that boxes above its weight in terms of taste and flavour for ABV, and there are many other beers that are all alcohol that don’t have this level of balance and overall decent enjoyment.
It punches well above it’s ABV weight.
The pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 8 of its things from the thing. I like this beer and it’d be a go-to beer if it was a local on-tap regular, what a nice bit of drinking.
The double dip review
Music for this: ”Reverend and the Makers ” with “Mirrors” on Spotify
Reverend and The Makers are an English rock band based in Sheffield, Yorkshire.
American Pale Ales are light in color, ranging from golden to a light copper color. The style of this beer is defined by the American hops used. American hops typically have high bitterness and aroma.This is a perfect beer for big fare like grilled burgers or combination pizzas, as well as lighter fare like sushi and green salads
