Einstok

IMG_20140831_125648869I’ve always been a big fan of White Beers.  I first saw these in Germany and the Berliner old ladies used to drink this with a fruit cordial (but I’m going back a long way here).  I lived in Belgium for a while and there are some great ones there including one with cardamom.  They are now common and popular all over Germany and although I didn’t have any at this year’s Oktoberfest I did two years ago – not sure I mentioned that in the post.  Anyway here’s one from Iceland – I bought on impulse in Majestic but probably available elsewhere as well. Very smooth – more refreshing I would say than Hoegarden.  I really liked it but it is a little pricey.
