mzaar (2164) - Varberg, SWEDEN - SEP 25, 2015
Fat @ Harp, London. Ibland när man minst anar det ramlar man över en öl som får en att fundera över det goda här i livet. Detta är en sådan. Allt känns så nästan perfekt att det är klargjort att vad man än dricker efteråt, åtminstone samma dag, riskerar det att bli tråkigt och fattigt. Beskan understöds av sötman optimalt, smakerna och dofterna får en att stanna upp och njuta, ta en inandning till, en klunk, känna den fruktiga och beska eftersmaken, vilja dela med sig, men samtidigt inte för att det ska vara så länge som möjligt. Och sen, när det är slut, när man lämnat glaset på bordet, är man lite lyckligare än för en stund sedan.
