When people say "wow"

We made Mighty Oak Maldon Gold (3.8%) our beer of the week once. It’s a regular at our local and we’ve enjoyed it more and more as we’ve got to know it.

In the last week, for one reason and another, we’ve taken different friends to the pub on three occasions and watched their reactions to this quietly impressive beer.

All three said: “Wow.”

One of our friends is a Foster’s/Magners drinker by nature and even he loved it. In fact, he wouldn’t shut up about it. A conversion?

This beer seems to sit right in the sweet spot — interesting enough that we keep going back to it as well appealing to people who aren’t geeky about beer.

So, we’re making it beer of the week again.

I am really looking forward to having an extended stay in the UK again so I can get to grips with the many, many beers I read about and am convinced I would love, not to mention getting some Timothy Taylor Landlord, Everard’s Tiger and Young’s Bitter. Need Bitter.

I know I’ve had this beer in the past and enjoyed it. I shall have to look out for it and see if it indeed has a ‘wow’ factor.

“One of our friends is a Foster’s/Magners drinker by nature” – some might say that drinking Foster’s/Magners is an unnatural act!
