Brewskie

In 5: Fruity, Mellow, Flat, Consistent, Amber

Finally, a hooker the Mrs won’t mind you bringing home!

We Hooked up with this ‘beauty’ in Aldi this morning; they do say people are meeting the love of their life in the supermarket more than anywhere else these days, so we were initially quite hopeful. At just £1.49 and with there only being a couple of Hookers left; our hopes were soon replaced with concern that there was probably something wrong with this Hooker and our relationship was doomed to failure.

When she finally escapes from the bottle you’re met with a burnt amber coloured pint (“it looks like apple juice” was the Mrs decent contribution), with surprisingly little head, very surprising considering the name! It took a while to pin down its aroma but we eventually settled for a sort of caramel/biscuit scenario, a little bit like millionaires shortbread if you will. The taste follows the nose with similar flavours coming through, very much a whole mouth experience, very rounded and very defined. You’re left with a slightly bitter after taste which we thought might go away towards the end but stayed throughout the whole deal. From the first mouthful to the last, the flavour is unwavering, this hooker certainly won’t leave you with any nasty surprises.

Overall, it was a decent drink but we’re not sure we’ll be getting Hooked anytime soon.
