Breakfast Beer Tasting: Hopdaemon Green Daemon
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.
