SNAKE’S BITE

I’m publishing this review a day early to piggyback on the big Masters of the Universe Day event that’s spreading through certain corners of the Internet. Nobody sent me a memo, so it came as a bit of a surprise. Anywho . . . .

Wychwood Brewery has been at it again, practicing their alcohol alchemy and bringing up this Biblical-themed brew. This time, they’ve tried blending Britain’s two favourite tipples – beer and cider – into one drink. And by now, regular readers (Do I have any of those, other than maybe Bill and Tresob . . .?) should know how I feel about British cider, which doesn’t bode well for this review.

Having already used King Hssss for Greene King Very Special IPA’s review, and the Snake Men 2-Pack not being available at the time of this batch of beer being sold, I went with the MOTU Classics Kobra Khan and his li’l pal, Fang.

For the most part, the only Wychwood brew I haven’t really liked so far has been their Green Goblin cider. And in all the years I’ve been doing these reviews (yes, it has been years, plural), Snake’s Bite is only the second Wychwood brew so far that I haven’t been madly keen on. I find the bitterness of the cider apples overwhelms the otherwise refreshing ale component and spoils the whole experience for me. But then, British cider sells very well over here, so my viewpoint is clearly in the minority. Whatever. Even though I might not like it much, there are enough fans of British cider out there who will probably really like this concoction. And, actually, the supermarket’s initial run of stock sold out quite quickly. So someone’s buying this stuff. It just ain’t gonna be me.

Drink this if you also like: Fruit beers, British cider.
