Around The World In 80 Beers Episode 123: Settlers
Mmm. A wheat beer from Mount Tamborine.

Settlers Wheat Beer

Pours a slight cloudy pale amber, with a large creamy head that fades away very slowly to a thick lacing. Small amount of carbonation visible in the glass

First sip: Some grainy, bready, almost biscuity malt and yeast, followed by a lot of lemony citrus flavours that linger for ages. Very small amount of hops flavour is trying to make itself known, but it is shouted down by the citrus.

That last sentence makes me sound like an opinionated beer git.

Mouth-feel is tingley on the tip of the tongue and slightly creamy. The beer-burp is nice.

Bugger. I *am* an opinionated beer git.

But this is a rather nice beer. It doesn't have have that yummy malt I like so it feels quite light, and yet it is still a very nice brew. I could drink a lot more of this. In fact, it's the perfect beer for a mild chicken curry. In fact part 2, I would say this is a yummy beer, with or without the curry.

Are you kidding? I enjoy these like I enjoy James Bond talking about wines, or like the 3rd Dr Who in "Day of the Daleks" when he was appraising the wine as "That's a most good-humoured wine. A touch sardonic, perhaps, but not cynical. A most civilised wine, one after my own heart."

Can you do one of these as a YouTube video? If you're worried about being watched then you could focus the video on your shadow, with the beer bottle in the foreground.
