“If ever you rest amongst the elderflower, foxgloves and swaying summer grasses of Kingcombe Meadows, prepare for a performance. A nimble golden harvest mouse, no larger than your thumb, uses its talented tail to somersault from stem to stem in search of wild barley and floral flavours. We’d give this grassy gymnast a gold medal every time!”
-from the back label of this beer bottle!
Also, I’m back in England now! Khiran and I shared this beer on Saturday night between bouts of intense Premier League watching. Whilst the football was definitely enjoyable, I found the back label’s rather English animal write up to be particularly enthralling!
