I think I started off feeling a bit low today. A bit in the dumps. No real reason; just a bit… blah. A pint of Dark Knight from the Moor Beer Co. didn’t make me feel any better. Didn’t make me feel any worse either. Just still a bit… blah.
Dark Knight is a dark wheat beer, ABV 5.1%.
The appearance reminded me of the colour of my bathwater after a particularly muddy walk in County Mayo. Without the distinctive peaty smell. The flavour was perfectly pleasant, very easily drinkable, but perhaps not very wheaty. A case of more dunkel and less weisse.
I think that I had been hoping for something a bit more… earthy. I felt a bit like I had asked for Wuthering Heights and been presented with Kate Bush rather than Emily Brontë. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love both Kate Bush and Emily Brontë, it was just that in my current state of mind, I was more in the mood for the gritty one with the incipient TB.
Moor’s Dark Knight was dark and brooding, but it was no Heathcliff.
