The Best Beer?

Two pints of beer. The first doesn't mess about. Flavours dance on the tongue, a real explosion of summeriness that grabs you immediately by the balls and lifts you above the humdrum. And the bitterness bites, but in a nice way.

The second is perfectly balanced. And has perfect manners. It doesn't scream and shout to get attention.  As it glides over the taste buds, it whispers politely, as a reminder (should you need it), that it’s good. Very good.

Some of my job entails me to write. But I don't write about beer. If I did, I'm sure I would devote more words to the first. A stunning beer, one that makes a big impression. A headline grabber.

But here comes the poser. What if I find myself subconsciously drinking a couple of pints of the second beer while I actually write the piece? Which of the two is now the better pint?

  1. Horses for courses... Perhaps they're both great in their own way, the second is better for writing with while you'd just want to sit back and enjoy the first ... :)
