DOG OF TWO HEAD
Review by Rob
Tails are wagging at Dogs Trust thanks to the launch of the new British premium ale ‘Dog Of Two Head’ created by Quo and Hobsons Brewery, who are donating 5% of the profits to the UK’s largest dog welfare charity to help dogs in need of new homes.
Rock ‘n’ roll out of the barrel!
‘Dog of Two Head’ is a bespoke ale of distinction that offers a refined pedigree, based on character and tradition; qualities that define Status Quo.
Crafted by Hobsons Brewery ‘Dog of Two Head’ is created from British malting barley and a blend of UK-grown Fuggles, Challenger, Goldings and Progress Hops.
Dog Of Two Head is a chestnut amber traditional ale, with a modern citrus twist delivered by British hops. This is a subtle ale deftly uniting and balancing the influences of malt, hops and natural bitterness.
So there you have it, a beer brewed by Hobson Brewery for Status Quo, for charity, this beer clangs a name drop at every opportunity, sorry love, I must drink this beer, it’s for charity. 50% of the Quo still drink this so therefore I must drink this. It’s my duty.
Out of the bottle this is a light golden ale colour, non-distinct smell or taste, very middle of the road ale, refined yes, premium ale no.
I guess if you like Lady Gaga and cats, this beer is not for you, but then again you probably drink alcopops if you do, so who cares?
If you’re feeling charitable, like dogs & The Quo, then this’ll be right up your street, from a beer perspective this is a decent enough effort, I certainly wouldn’t complain if I was offered this in a pub, at a BBQ or at a Quo concert – not that there will be any more of them unfortunately. Long live their beer and their music.
