For the official record, I'm Kutty and I love BEER! I mean, I really, really, really, love beer. It's a beautiful thing. A sublime melding of nature's bounty in one perfect pint (or bottle if you prefer). It's one of man's perfect creations. It has a flavour spectrum that covers everything from sweet to bitter, it's sometimes fruity, or earthy, can taste sharp or dull, it can deliver its flavour with a kick to the teeth or a subtle caress. Its tasting notes can be everything and anything from apricots and wheat to bog sprigs and barley. Hell, just the other day I had a beer that tasted like smoked sausage. Seriously, this beer smelled and tasted like a Polish deli. Amazing! It's produced in light or heavy alcohol content, its colour wheel has hues of red, gold, and even black in some cases. It looks good, taste better, and in most cases is only made with the most organic and natural of ingredients. What's not to love?
Myself, I'll drink just about anything. I prefer the hoppy pop of bitters and IPA's but enjoy the crisp freshness of weiss' and lagers. I have delved into the citrus sweetness of wit's and hefenweissen's and craved the roasted malts of stouts and porters. As stated above, I LOVE BEER!
Now, I need to point out that I'm not a pretentious pinky waggler, but am developing in to a bit of a beer elitist. I tend to gravitate towards craft beer, but will stand up for the retail breweries when impugned (Shit! It was the big guys who got me through College!!). There is only one beer I refuse to drink and some that I will avoid. I will often give anything a chance and very much enjoy what's new and radical.
So, CHEERS and enjoy.
