The signs of summer coming to an end are now becoming quite obvious: the sun is now setting earlier in the evening; that warm summer breeze that enveloped round your body has now become a cold and constricting breeze and, soon to be, buses packed full of kids making the merry - and noisy - way back to school. So, to all you parents, friends and family members who spent the past six weeks spending time with the kids, we believe at LightDrinks HQ that it’s time for you to unwind, and so, will be having a 10% discount on all purchases, next week.
So for this week’s Midweek Drink, I will be reviewing Becks alcohol-free beer, Becks Blue.
A brief history of Becks Brewery
Becks Brewery was founded in 1873, Bremen, Germany, which was originally called Beck & Co. The brewery then merged with another brewery called Brauerei C.H. Haake & Co. in 1921, to finally being called Brauerei Beck & Co. Fast-forward to 2001, the brewery was then purchased by Interbrew and continues to produce beer under the Purity Law that was enacted in 1516.
Three senses and a beverage
This alcohol-free beer comes in a 275ml bottle. The ingredients used are: Water, Barley Malt, Hops and Yeast.
It has a pale gold colour as you pour with medium carbonation and a frothy white head that lingers until eventually dissipating and leaving a white lace around the glass. It has a sweet and beery aroma that resembles its alcoholic cousin, Becks. Tart and dry finish is the best way I can describe the taste.
