Strength: 3.6% ABV (light ale)
How’s it taste? Fruity. Mostly grapefruit, with some pepperiness in there too.
It’ll stop you getting so boozed that you… Storm away from a picnic screaming “and what’s more, Giles, I bet you haven’t even read Chilcot!”
Strength: 4.1% ABV (black IPA)
How’s it taste? Stronger than it is. Coffee notes and bitterness.
It’ll stop you… Thrusting your debut-novel manuscript into the face of pals, declaring “I’m sure you’ll agree it shows a sharper eye than the equivalent McEwan.”
Strength: 4% ABV (Berliner weisse)
How’s it taste? Sour, citrusy and sharp. Like Haribo!
It’ll stop you… Sending a bridge-burning text to your line manager demanding imminent talks about “not just my own prospects, Paul, but your glaring inadequacies as a figurehead for the department.”
Strength: 3.8% ABV (pale ale)
How’s it taste? Fuller-bodied than the others mentioned here. Hoppy and limey.
It’ll stop you… Bellowing “vanity is the plague of our times!”, deleting all forms of social media, then throwing your iPhone into a lake.
Strength: 3.2% ABV (pale ale)
How’s it taste? Light, fresh and creamy. Well-balanced: not too sweet or bitter.
It’ll stop you… Tearfully admitting that yes, you did book a week off work just so you could play on the SNES you found in the loft.
