The Tipsy-Train Beer Blog with Mount Saint Bernard Abbey's Tynt Meadow

Mount Saint Bernard Abbey – Tynt Meadow

Mount Saint Bernard Abbey – Tynt Meadow

Solid start to the week at work with it being busy, but still able to catch my breath and ease back after a nice weekend away. Saw this one on the shelf and had to try it as it was not what I'd usually choose...automatically tonight's tipsy-train tipple!

My first monastery beer as far as I'm aware, and in keeping with that, the bottle is pretty non-descript with 'ye olde' writing on a plain and unimposing cream label. First smell was a deep and rich malty one that just reminded me of an old traditional pub with a roaring fire, those lovely old wood beams and comfy chairs. The following swig had that dry hoppy hit that then gently shifts into a malty backing on the tongue.

Each kick back after was just a really enjoyable taste, as the monks had clearly sacrificed years of silence and celibacy to produce a beer full of quality ingredients and brewmanship. A surprising recommendation for me on this one!

Cheers everyone!🍻
