I love beer, me
I love proper beer. I mean, proper, real ale. I don’t drink a lot but when I do have a beer I like it to taste of something other than chemicals and fizz. I like beers that taste of honey and fruit, of freshly mown grass, with a delicate sweetness. My favourite beer I’ve tasted so far is Belgian Cantillon Gueze. It kind of sets your teeth on edge the first time you taste it but it’s beautiful to drink, especially in a Belgian bar (my favourite country, romantic and melancholy in the winter) and especially while sitting next to someone wonderful. You know who you are.
