Erdinger Alkoholfrei Weissbrau Beer (Morrison’s) By @SpectreUK

Erdinger Alkoholfrei Weissbrau Beer

I must admit that I didn't sleep a wink last night. I had a job interview this morning (Friday), and I was worried it would go as badly as my last one did a couple of weeks ago. Fortunately I was offered the role instead. Now my bank account can breathe a sigh of relief considering that I have been spending too much time on Amazon and Ebay during the lockdown, and my savings are starting to scrape the bottom of the barrel after eighteen months of rehabilitating my knee from specialist surgery. 

You may be wondering why I picked a low alcohol wheat beer at 0.5% in volume to celebrate getting a job? Well this Erdinger Alkoholfrei Weissbrau, from Erding in Germany, is an isotonic drink with plenty of vitamins B9 and B12 to help me with my energy levels during gaming night tonight. It is also low in calories, and did I say it was a German beer? Well we're having schnitzels tonight for dinner, which are basically bashed flat breaded pork steaks. They're pretty high in calories and protein, so this lower calorie beer at 125 calories per 500ml or 'pint', as we say in rainy sunny stormy rainy sunny rainy England.  

On opening the bottle there was a strong wheat aroma. A frothy cheerful head flowed into my waiting beer glass on top of this deep golden beer. On taste this Erdinger Alkoholfrei Weissbrau has quite a bite to it from its herbal hops, which arrived jumping up and down on top of my tastebuds right after the initial sweet flavour of wheat and touch of yeastiness. This is a very flavoursome beer indeed. Its purely natural nutrient rich ingredients screamed goodness at me whilst the hops held my ears open. The mix of sweet wheat and bitter herbal hoppy flavours went perfectly with my schnitzels and their accompanying potato and green salads. I would never have been able to tell on a blind taste test that I wasn't drinking a full alcoholic beer. And if I hadn't been blogging about it, I wouldn't have thought twice about the alcohol missing anyway.
