Diamond Jubilee Beer
The retail giant commissioned Elgood’s Brewery to produce this fermented commemoration of Elizabeth’s 60 years on the throne. It’s a lovely bottle with a great cap, but what’s inside fails to live up to the pageantry.
Tunnock’s Caramel Wafers. Seriously, this beer is a few of those in liquid form. Sweet and biscuity. And sweet some more. That’s fine if you’re expecting caramel wafers, but I was rather thinking there might be beer involved somehow.
Perhaps this is how the Queen prefers her ales, but personally, I wouldn’t feed it to the Corgis.
