Eurovision time in my household: cue the bad dresses and oddly put together vocals. We're big fans, Tilly and I, of the whole shebang though we have found the evening a bit of a disappointment from our usual "let's buy the CD" years since 2007.
Eurovision means beer. Tonight's newbie is Animee Lemon because Tilly noticed it and was intrigued.
First of all, it comes in a very small bottle, some 275ml, and although it weighs in at 4% ABV it is in such small portions there's no danger of it getting to you quickly. It's a light beer, indeed, it seems suspiciously light given the ales I've had since starting my little jaunt some time last year. The flavour is indeed very lemony, which is fine and dandy, but not really what I've come to expect from beer. It has a slight fizz, less than I'm used to actually, and it's a bit like having a lager rather than a proper drink. Stiil, that's not necessarily a bad thing.
Aroma is tangy, taste is fresh and there's a hint of soft drink about it. It's not cheap at £5 for 4 small bottles but nor will it break the bank. It doesn't really produce a head nor does it go straight to yours. Nice enough, you can have it with chocolates and not spoil them, but the flavour is strong - meaning that you can't really try another new beer after you've tried it and hope to have an objective experience with it. I ended up having a Thoroughbred Gold afterwards.
Nice enough, not to my tastes, a bit wet. Enjoy with a box of chocolates whilst waiting for your girlfriends to finish on the kareoke machine. Quaff straight from the bottle and buy a pack between four of you, I expect it does better in numbers. Spirited, young, and will no doubt feature in posh University parties or at barbeques.
Words of warning and welcome:
This is very much my blog, so don't be surprised if this doesn't follow accepted patterns and norms. Obviously it started out as a blog about my cross-dressing but it has developed a great deal since then. It is a place where I can be anonymous and honest, and I appreciate that.
It will deal with many things and new readers would do well to check out the New Readers' Page above this and the tag down there on the right. Although there's nothing too bad in here there will be adult language, so be careful. If you think this needs a greater control, please let me know. Thank you!
