0.5% alc (low alcohol)
I have depression lalalalalaaaa, you can read a million things online where I have given you the deep dive on my mental health. This post isn’t about my brain but my brain is a starting point. I stopped drinking (with a handful of exceptions) in the new year because alcohol was fucking with my meds and the next day I would be in the darkest pit of depression again that it was getting to be dangerous/ it was negating the efforts I was taking to recover. Fast forward six months and I’m in Budapest with my galz, they’re drinking AND ALL I WANT IS SWEET SWEET BEER ON MY LIPS.
Since then, LET. ME. TELL. YOU. I .HAVE. BEEN. ON. A. J-OOOOUUU-R-N-E-Y. I am now hunting down the best non alc/low alc drinks so that my life can be complete and I can stop panicking in bars and ordering a coke that I don’t want.
P.s. Shout out to Emilie who told me to review my non alc drinks – I can only assume ideas like this are why she’s at Oxford.
This weeks beer is Sainsbury’s Low Alcohol Czech Pilsner Larger. The label describes it as,”light bodied with bitter hop notes and a fresh finish.” Obviously, I have no idea what that means but let me tell you how it tasted to me.
Once I poured it, there was no head (unlike my teens), it was very fizzy, clear and it was an amber colour, which looked like mildly hydrated pee. I think if I ordered a larger that poured like this and was alcoholic, I would be pretty sad because I don’t usually like larger that is this clear. It doesn’t really smell of anything, but smell is only 95% of a tasting experience, so that shouldn’t be too important.
Ok, so it feels really fizzy and tastes to me like fruity and citrusy, but with a hoppy after taste. I guess I like it(????) This one does taste like larger to me, but not really a larger I want to be drinking. It’s quite watery and just feels like it’s a sad version of real beer. However, it does have that yeasty taste after a while that I had really missed so if that is something that you enjoy then check out this beer and my vagina.
