Pilot, Mel ‘N Mint

Name: Mel ‘N Mint

Brewery: Pilot Beer, Edinburgh, Scotland

Type: Watermelon, Mint & Hibiscus Semi-Sour

ABV: 3.5%

First tried: 330ml can from Waterintobeer, Brockley

The official beer of the Edinburgh Craft Beer Festival, May 2019. A deliciously fragrant watermelon scented beer, which is super light and refreshing. It would be easy to drink a few of these. The only disappointment is that it’s not very minty.

Oedipus, Mannenliefde

Name: Mannenliefde

Brewery: Oedipus, Amsterdam, Netherlands

Type: Saison

ABV: 6%

First tried: 330ml bottle from The Offy, Whitstable

This beer isn’t for me, which is unusual because I do love a saison. It has a complex but light beer / saison flavour with lemongrass and Szechuan pepper. I do love Oedipus and their branding, I’m hoping to visit their taproom in Amsterdam soon.
