Breakfast Beer Tasting: Hopdaemon Green Daemon

This is the second Hopdaemon beer to be trialled at breakfast. Skirmshander IPA was a real disappointment, but having had this recommended, I was willing to give them another chance.

The basics: This is a 5% Helles that comes in a 50cl bottle. The bottle says it's well suited to curries or seafood, but how well would it fare alongside Oatibix?

It poured clear golden with good carbonation and a thin off-white head. There was an appealing aroma of tropical fruits-mango, peach and some citrus.

Taste: Tropical fruits combine with some sweet malt to give a good crisp texture. Nicely balanced, it’s quaffable and quite moreish.

Finish: Medium with a dry fruit hop aftertaste.

Conclusion: Works well as either a very good British version of this classic style or simply as a tasty summer quaffing ale. One for the BBQ friends.
