Around The World In 80 Beers episode 160: Moa Blanc
I have now gone around the world twice.

Moa Blanc

Pours a slightly cloudy pale yellow, with a medium white head that fades away quickly.

First Sip: Bready, biscuity malts up front with a faint sweet malt lurking in there, which is almost hidden by lemon citrus flavours. Mild hops bitterness on the back of the tongue. Mouth-feel is a little watery with a very dry after-taste.

Even though it feels a little watery, it is really refreshing on a hot day. And it is a beer for a hot day. I could easily quaff a six pack today, if I had a six pack. It goes down easily and the dry finish makes this very more-ish. It's a good ale for a mild curry or smoked meats, and it goes very well with a mature cheddar.

Ya know...

Is there any beer that doesn't go well with a tasty cheddar? Barring those beers that are so horrid on their own that they would actually detract from the cheddar in the first place of course...



I can't think of a beer that cheddar doesn't go with. Strong brews need a strong cheddar; mild brews need a mild cheddar.

And with the horrible beers, the cheddar helps take away the taste.

Muh-muh-muh-MOA! :D

I do love your beer reviews Den. I had started a spreadsheet to catalogue the lot. Maybe when I retire I'll finish it.
