Just like you, but different
Here we have a beer from Small Gods x Known Unknown – Agnostos Theos. A ‘Grape Ale’. I know the brewers and have a lot of respect for the driver behind their increased input and devotion to the off beat and lesser taken track for beers. There’s a couple of things they are good at, one is the unusual or lesser brewed style, the other is the wax dipped bottles and cans, who can’t go past presentation. The beer wins all the time though.
Small Gods make the Small Gods Agnostos Theos and they are in 🇳🇿 Auckland, New Zealand (the beer brewed in New Plymouth) as a IGA – (Italian Grape Ale) or since it’s unusual a Traditional Ale – Other beer at 5.0%, this is 1.3 standard drinks in NZ.
A champagne coloured ale with a nice carbonation, a small head of brilliant white. Clear and just dark enough to look still in the glass. The aroma is lovely, hoppy
The taste is a beer that is hoppy, and yet not, and is light but isn’t, and is fruity, and then there is that hoppy hug all around it. It’s a hoppy fruit beer. It’s a fruity hoppy beer. It’s a nice beer.
There’s a lot to like about a light tasting, yet tasty beer that keeps you engaged and in contact, there’s some lovely flavours that are familiar and usual, just in unusual placces
The Pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 8 on the arbitrary number scale. I can’t be over enthusiastic, but this is nice to drink beer, and you could have a few, not be bored, and not have your taste buds destroyed form something bigger, stronger, different, it’s kind of neutral. Much more than a plain beer.
Music: – Brian Jonestown Massacre – Revelation – on the Vinyl – outstanding! Also quite good on the Spotify.
Herevana beers are those I drink at home, I’m not at some beer festival, like, for instance, Beervana, but am just in my kitchen, usually, dining room table, sometimes, or outside, occasionally, where I can take an average picture and write in real time about the beer that I’ve invested in, both in a monetary and emotional way.Philip himself.
In ancient Greece the great pantheon of gods accounted for the preponderance of worship and prayer. It was known however that there were forces and powers that were unknown. For this the Greek gave up prayers to an unknown god, or Agnostos Theos whose humble shrine in currently stands in the Palatine Museum in Rome.The Brewers
Agnostos Theos is a collaboration by the wild and Lo-Fi wine specialists at New Plymouth’s Known Unknown wine. This Chardonnay Brut Sparkling Ale was fermented with Chardonnay grape juice and aged on the skins for a deep and satisfying character. On the nose it bursts with a bright floral Chardonnay bouquet rounded out with a moderate dose of vinious Nelson Sauvin hops. On the palate a spritzy carbonation and dry finish make this a complex and quaffable session beer
Usually, the Italian Grape Ale acidity is pleasant and intensify the dry sensation. There are a lot of different types of Italian Grape Ale, that show different aromatic profile and taste. Overall Impression: A sometimes refreshing, sometimes more complex Italian ale characterized by different varieties of grapes.
