Salut, prost & cheers: Exotic beers from around the world
Exotic Beers in lieu of Oktoberfest!
With Oktoberfest 2017 already underway and our beer cravings in a tizzy, step away from the traditional Oktoberfest beer and give these exotic beers from around the world a try!
1. Mamma Mia Pizza Beer
It is an herbed beer brewed by Pizza Beer Company, from St. Charles, Illinois. Respledent with spices, it is a sensory experience that combines the heady flavours of pizza and beer. Brewed -directly with oregano, basil, garlic and tomato; it tickles your nose with the fresh wafts of a freshly baked Margarita pizza straight out of the oven. It actually tastes like lager though only with the slightest aftertaste of Italian spices, playing along with the beer’s hop-iness.
2. Duff Beer
Ideal for a Simpsons’ fan, this beer is light and possesses a sweet malty flavour. Already well known for being the fictional beer from the popular TV show, fans were lining up for a taste, when it was rolled-out in real life. Poured into a Pilsner glass, this straw blonde brew has a slight tinge of lemon and green apple to it. So, lay on that couch, turn on the TV and enjoy your glass of Duff in true Homer-style!
3. Asahi Super Dry
This sensational beer from Japan is crisp and dry on the palate. With its refreshing barley flavour, it is an extremely popular and high-quality beer in Japan. The rice lager style gives it a nice sweetness and bold flavours. The golden brew is bubbly, citrusy and refreshing to the hilt. The restrained bitterness pairs well with a delicious platter of sushi.
4. Shock Top Chocolate Wheat
A cocoa-flavoured wheat which is strong on the chocolaty taste, this is a must-try for beer and chocolate lovers! It is aged over chocolate and vanilla beans to deliver a smooth and creamy finish. This medium-bodied beer can be paired with savoury or light desserts to enjoy the complete cocoa experience!
5. Estrella Damm Barcelona
This Mediterranean beer comes from Damm’s century-long beer brewing experience. This Spanish pilsner is light-bodied and has a universally liked character and taste. It is flavourful with just the right balance of earthy ‘hops’ and an aroma of lightly-toasted biscuits and pepper.
Give this German festival a twist with different flavours of beer from around the world!
