Not a Review of Thornbridge Chiron

For the 84th Beer Blogging session, Oliver Gray has challenged us to review a beer by doing anything but reviewing it.

After experimenting with ballet, musique concrète, mime and flower arranging, we eventually settled on video: we used footage from the Prelinger collection at the Internet Archive and some ‘music’ of our own ‘composition’ (cringe) to create this minute-long… thing.

That was fun, but we won’t be making a habit of it.

I thought that was lovely. Not pretentious, but thoughtful. Could split a room, though. Thought it had signature themes of yours – vintage images of man and woman enjoying beer together etc.

After your description I thought I would find it incredibly naff, but it’s rather clever, taking describing a beer into a new dimension (wish I’d thought of it…)

Started writing an “Adam Curtis” script a few times but gave up for fear that Thornbridge has (a) lawyers who (b) haven’t got a sense of humour. How AC does it for real I’ll never know.

Yes, very clever. Except that you have reviewed the beer. Now we know that Chiron by Thornbridge has a citrussy aroma with peaches, more peaches and apricots with lager malt in the mouth followed by a pine resin and grapefruit finish.

Oh, wait a minute, that’s any Thornbridge beer…
