Default Sorry America...

A bit back I grumbled about SNPA not being very good. The other day I saw some in Asda (maybe a WalMart thing?) so bought a couple of bottles for research...and now see where I went wrong!

Serve It Warm.

The place I had it before served it chilled to buggery probably figuring 'it's American so it will want to be chilled like Bud' and robbing it of all its...well...beeriness. When it is warmer it becomes a decent, hoppy pale ale. Keep up the good work, America. I'm off to find a clone recipe to brew in the new year...

But in a far smaller bottle!

Like the old joke about 'the food here is terrible' 'Yeah, and such small portions'

No worries, danlad. It's a common belief that all our beer is crap and should be ice cold to mask the piss flavor. Cheers to you finding out otherwise! *raises a pint glass*

SNPA is what it is. It's sold everywhere where I live, gas stations, stop and robs, sort of like BMC. It's known for the hint of citrus flavor that it has. I buy and drink it every now and then. <shrug>

danlad, if you can make it down to London for the Great British Beer Festival next August, they have a section with American beers there which has a decent little selection (in addition to the 500 odd beers total at the show).
