Well, if you are still with with me after reading yesterday’s confession, thanks for coming back. Rest assured that today’s post will not involve a return visit to the district of depravity we found ourselves in yesterday. No eyebrowing raising anecdotes for this one
Getting back to the AF Beer countdown, after much lip smacking, gargling & Jilly Goolden style neb sniffing, here we have it
Rolling in at number 6, by the closest of margins, is Innis & None Alcohol Free Pale Ale.
Fact is if it hadn’t been for my chequered history with Heineken, then this would have tied for 7th place.
I’m genuinely gutted that Innis and None gave such a poor showing & placed so low.. I’m quite a fan of the excellent full strength beers I have tasted from this family owned brewery based In Edinburgh.
It starts off well with a dark amber pour and a thick white head, if you didn’t see the can it came from, then it certainly has the look and style of a real beer.. sadly the taste lets it down. It’s lightly carbonated and is to be fair fairly hoppy, but that’s about it, the finish is poor and the after taste was weak and watery..
The best thing about this AF Beer is the clever play on the brand name, once you have enjoyed that however, their isn’t much inside to smile about. I hope I’m being overly harsh, maybe the top 5 were just superior to such an extent that Innis & none never stood a chance..
I got my can of Innis & none in ASDA Antrim, priced at £1..
