I've not made much of a dent in the Bok pile Dolores provided for me. time to put that right.
Starting off with the standard Heineken offering.
Heineken Tarwebok, 6.5% ABV
Heineken used to brew a traditional barley Bok, but 15-20 years ago changed to a wheat Bok. The first couple of iterations were pretty good. Tyhen they sweetened it, in an attempt to adapt to preceived customer demand. Can't say I've liked it since. It smells OK: caramel, liquorice type thing. But it's so sweet in the mouth I can feel my teeth dissolving. Not going to be able to finish this. Might go well in the gravy, though.
"Do you want to try my beer, Lexie?"
I don't feel like pushing it.
"Do you want to try my beer, Dolores?"
"OK. That's quite nice . . .. uggh. That's so sweet. It tastes like caramel. It might go well in the sauce."
"That's what I thought."
