Gordon McGillikitty felt like visiting the photo session while I was snapping shots of Samuel Smith‘s Pure Brewed Organic Lager. For over 250 years this brewery in Yorkshire, England has crafted beers and ciders, and can now claim USDA organic and vegan certifications. Nothing but natural ingredients were used for this 5% ABV and 25 IBU lager. After I poured it, Gordon’s nose may have picked up on what I did. The rich aroma was enticing, yet the taste was mild and clean. I imagine that cats must not have the most enhanced taste buds, so if cats liked beer, this could be it, but I mean that as a genuine compliment towards the lightly crisp simplicity. Sometimes a beer is just a beer, and you don’t need any flavors, additives, or high alcohol content. Frankly, I enjoyed this lager as a welcome change of pace from the hop-driven bitter brews that I typically prefer.
