Abbeydale Brewery Birdhouse Tea Beer (4.2%)

Now this little beer right here is an absolute joy from beginning to end.
It’s clean and crisp and fresh, pouring a creamy gold with a little fluffy head and smelling of jasmine and vanilla pods and, in all truth, fondant icing.
There’s a soft and subtle caramel and waffle, honey and wafer malt, a pinch of earthy salt from the yeast and a slap of brittle green herbal hops.
Ad then there’s the tea that’s been specially blended by Abbeydale’s local tea company, Birdhouse.
It’s green tea with jasmine and hibiscus, which adds an almost smoky and sexily dirty kick to the flavour, a deep perfume to the aroma and a pink hue to the beer in the glass.
It’s such a happy experience that it’s got me whistling a tune.
I only wish that it came in bigger cans.
