Anywhoo, jump on over to and see his review of what he calls the Goddess of Beers.  A teaser:

So as much as it PAINS ME to say it – because it confirms that I cannot resist the awesome power of blatant advertising tricks – this beer tastes…a little like champagne. Sure, it’s not exactly 500ml of Veuve Clicquot in a can, but there is definitely an ever so slightly sweet, white wine-like aftertaste. I say “definitely” but is there actually? Or can I taste champagne simply because my primitive brain automatically sees “champagne” on the can and sends a message to my tongue saying “yeeep yep yep that’s champagne, just relax I’ve done your work for you”.
