Tonight we are headed to church for confession, an admittedly uncomfortable occasion. Funny thing is, we feel great afterward, being sin free, if only momentarily. Since church is still a couple of hours away, I thought I would review a beer. The first one that I pulled from the fridge was a 9.something % ABV beast, which I decided to put back, as it would almost certainly result in an overly elaborate confession later. Instead, I grabbed this Zermatt Matterhorn (5.0%), a gift from our friend Heather who recently returned from a week-long trip to Switzerland.
The beer is a European pale lager by style. Little head on the pour. Amber hue with an orange-ish tint. Lots of biscuity malty flavors. Super low in hop bittering. Definitely crushable. Overall pretty tasty. Thanks Heather!!
