Jack`s S**T Pandemic Drinks - Doombar

 

Days Since Beercraft Lockdown: Three

 

With little access to good quality beers and a hankering for a drink in these trying times... I have taken it upon myself to try all the drinks I once loved years ago and to see how my Palate has been spoiled with the likes of verdant, northern monk and Deya. I will also be calling out some of the awful beers and ciders that are out there, that try to pass themselves off as premium brands and how they are ripping us all off with inferior ingredients, chemicals and flavourings.

lets see how much of a pretentious beer and cider twat I have become.
       .....

 

Another productive day in lockdown, finished off the front garden, had the mandatory 30 minutes of walking allowed by law and even found the time to upcycle an old bench we had hidden away behind the shed, which made the perfect spot to sit and mildly enjoy tonight's beer.

Sharp's was an independent brewery up in till 2011, before being sold to Molsen coors. It is still branded as an independent Cornish brewery with the live, laugh, love style douchebaggery message, despite the bottled beer being made in the home of Carling Burton On Trent. 

Over the years I have tried Doombar in many pubs I have worked in and visited. On cask and in bottles, the change in the beer is noticeable and I have heard the same from many former customers. It has lost some of the rich sweet malty flavours I remember and is now rather watery. It now tastes much more like a northern brown ale like Newky brown.

Or just maybe I have turned into a pretentious beer twat and the rich flavours I once thought the beer had was never actually there. Going from Craft beer which is packed full of bright hoppy flavours back to an Ale with its more stone fruit flavours and earthiness, really shows how little flavour is actually in "real ale" and the people trying to preserve the idea of real ale are just trying to preserve an idea of their youth. Just maybe in 40 years time I will be an even grumpier old man complaining about how craft beer is the real beer!
