Today we’re trying something different! A written review of booze instead of a video with Ben! The beer? Emergency Drinking Beer brewed by Wild Heaven Beer in Avondale Estates, Georgia! Let’s get right to it!
As you can see from first glance the beer is certainly playing up the title, giving off a caution tape vibe. Straight faced humor is always a favorite of mine, but can it back up the humor with a beer worth drinking? The short answer is… Kinda.
Commercial Description: A one-of-a-kind session beer reminiscent of a crisp pilsner married with a traditional gose. Brightness and complexity come from additions of citrus zest, Portuguese sea salt and lemongrass.
A Pils-style Session Ale at 4% ABV, that definitely has a citrus taste to it. I can’t say for sure I’m tasting lemongrass, but that could be my philistine tastebuds. It’s a light refreshing taste that isn’t unlike a common pilsner beer, but it has its own unique flavor that sets it apart. Overall if you are a fan of pilsner, or session beers this should be on your list of beers to try. It’s a beer you could drink all day while out fishing, at a barbecue, or tailgate party.
Personal opinion? Not my kinda beer, but it was worth the cost of admission ($10 USD where I picked up a six-pack of this stuff.) As the kinda guy who likes to try new beers I found this one surprisingly refreshing. I expected a rather generic experience considering the labeling, but I was happy to find it had it’s own style beyond your average budweiser. Do I plan to pick this up again? Not likely. It was a one shot for me. It has a nice light aroma, and the aftertaste leaves you feeling just a little dry, but that is by no means a bad thing. For a beer out of my wheelhouse I still enjoyed it, but not enough to consider it a continual purchase.
If you’re down in Georgia, or happen to run across this in your travels, pick it up and try it for yourself! That’s all for now, but soon enough I’m sure I’ll try another beer, and maybe I’ll review that as well. Thanks for reading, and as always, have a safe drive home!
