Innis & Gunn White Oak: 5.5 – It has a more flat taste, and coming from Innis and Gunn their cask beers have so much complexity that this lacks. I mean it’s an okay wheat beer, but it feels more like a compromise from a company that’s not good at this.
Google Shop Average: Innis & Gunn White Oak $9 for 4-Pack
Corona Extra: 1.0 – If you told me this was simply chilled piss from someone who was drunk – I’d believe you. This tastes awful, and there’s a damn good reason the ads, and serving of this includes actual fruit to counteract it.
Well I had a recent stint across the pond, and a load of time at the airport before my return. So of course I walked around the duty-free shop looking for something neat that I’ve not seen in a local store. However with a very distinctive color and name (and let’s be fair the brand of Auchentoshan is a friend) the choice was quite obvious.
Trooper 666: 6.0 – This is most certainly a british-style beer, and it is uniquely tasty. However while this might be British-style, and the odd metal/Iron Maiden is cool, but I would never serve this warm.
Google Shop Average: Name $6
Foster’s Lager: 3.0 – I will admit that this does not taste like what I think piss tastes like. It does however taste like Australians piss if it was halfway through a sanitation procedure to turn it into water. That being said it could be worse?
I wish this was called Cane Run Sugar Cane Rum just for the wordplay alone. In short though we have a non-gimmicky fairly standard white rum that does not do much to not fade into the background of where it sits on a store shelf. Not that we take issue with that – some of our favorites barely standout, and the few with pizzazz are often left wanting in other areas.
