Around The World In 80 Beers episode 171: My Wife's Bitter

My Wife's Bitter

Pours a dark clear copper colour with almost no head. Some carbonation visible in the glass.

First Sip: Nutty, roasted malt and a small amount of caramel sweetness. The after-taste is a little dry with a long lasting bitterness on the back of the tongue. Medium mouth-feel with a mild carbonation tingle on the tongue. The malt becomes stronger as the beer warms in the glass.

This is rather nice. It's pretty close to an English bitter, which is not bad for a company from the sunny Gold Coast in Queeensland. It could do with a little more malt, but it's still a good beer and one I would happily drink a lot of in a session. The beer burp is nice.

At first I thought the label was one of those "humorous" borderline-offensive labels you see on a few new brews, but on the web-site the brewer says he brewed this for his wife. So you can read the label any way you like.

I prefer to read it on an empty bottle.

It doesn't need a cheese, but it does go well with a cheap blue-vein.

Same again, sir? Yes.
You what?


I think I voted, yesterday. I went to a place, wrote some numbers on paper, and stuffed the paper in a box. Later that night some politicians appeared.

The conservatives won on promised that seemed to be mostly on improving services in Sydney. Because we all know Sydney is New South Wales and all the areas outside Sydney is just... outside.
