Teme Valley This

2013-05-18 18.13.13

Teme Valley’s This is a 3.7% ABV light ale.  It’s a typical light brown colour and smells, to be honest, of very little.  The flavour, as this kind of beer goes, is `ok’ – maybe a little bland.  If I was drinking this in a pub by the pint, I’d probably be quite happy.  But I wouldn’t go out of my way to try this again – there are so many other great beers around.

A Bitter This

Seen at the St Albans Beer Festival ‘For one day only’: A Bitter This is a 4.5%ABV flavoured amber ale apparently brewed by Marstons. Obviously produced for an episode of BBC’s The Apprentice, and served by appropriately suited barmen with a film crew and Nick Hewer in attendance, this is an expensive ale (my son was charged £3.50 for a 330ml bottle – and that was the reduced price) in an expensive looking bottle. I can’t believe that the contestents had thought at all about the target market (mainly men). It’s described as a ‘chocolate orange infused premium ale’. The taste and smell of chocolate and oranges is frankly overwhelming, but when this subsides, all that’s left is a bitterness. Yes, it’s an orangey amber colour, and the label’s lovely, but I wouldn’t pay £3.50 for another bottle of this. I’d rather have a chocolate orange.
