Spooks Ale0October 31st, 2012Amber ales
I reckon the UK is on the cusp of starting to take Halloween seriously, like they do over the pond.
And why shouldn’t that be a good thing? It’s an excuse to be creative, meet friends and drink beer.
Especially when the beer is halloween beer, like Spooks from Shepherd Neame. 100% marketing gimmick but then again the whole halloween thing is, so let’s not judge without trying first.
Turns out it’s the sort of beer that would do just fine for a halloween party – deep amber in colour, seasoned with a dark chocolate digestives, a nutty swagger and a dash of lemon juice that disappears in a grave of treacle.
A great companion to apple bobbing but just the one for me please. It’s Halloween and there’s plenty more dressed up beers out there to play trick or treat with.Tags: halloween, shepherd neame
