Beers For The New Season – Including Something Spooky!

By  |  0 Comments

With Hallowe’en fast approaching we thought we’d bring you something different. Beer – which is not normally marketed at women. So, without further ado, let’s get down to it. Our top spooky choice is * Wychwood Pumpking Beer. Brewed with pumpkin and mace, it imparts a warm spiceiness which is all too welcome at this time of year. To entice you further you’ll find hints of toffee and yummy dried fruit bursting from every mouthful. Great on its own, or with meat (ulp!) dishes. Wychwood Pumpking Beer retails at just £0.99 for a generous 500ml 4.2% abv bottle so don’t delay with this special buy from Aldi.

*Special buys are limited edition beverages handpicked for their great quality from around the world by Aldi buyers.

If the above sounds too tummy turning, our second offering is Banks’s Bitter Ale which comes straight from the Midlands – Park Brewery Wolverhampton to be precise. Its deep gold colour is full of tangy and tart flavours that only the best bitters can invoke. We found deep fruitiness in our mouthfuls overlain with a clean cut of hops. Perfect with meat, fish and chicken dishes. Banks’s is 3.8% abv, offered in a 500ml bottle.

Last but not least, St Stefanus is an authentic Belgian Abbey speciality beer that matures in the bottle thus allowing you to choose the way you want your beer to taste. After brewing, the unpasteurised beer is stored for three months in the cellar before release. At three months maturation, St Stefanus has a fresh and fruity taste and at 18 months maturation it develops a deep golden colour with aromatic flavours.
At 7% abv St. Stefanus is a little stronger than most, but don’t let that put you off.
RRP £2.95 (300ml bottle) and £8.95 (750ml bottle) Available from selected Majestic stores and online states women states should drink no more than 2-3 units of alcohol per day and men no more than 3-4 units of alcohol per day.
