I’ve gotten behind as the official writer-upper of the beer tasting reviews.
I can’t even say I couldn’t do it because I’d had a few too many as A) I don’t drink beer and B) I drink so little alcohol in general that everyone who actually knows me would know that I was lying though my teeth if I ever said that.
I’ve been putting this post together over a period of weeks and finally got it finished.
As usual, one of the group picks the beer, (no, they would never trust me to do that part) and the others get a blind tasting so that they can’t be influenced by anything on the label at all.
For better or for worse, all they have to go by is the colour and their taste buds…
