Beer – by Karen

18 Jun

Bitterness. Coldness. Brownness. These are perhaps the defining qualities of beer. No wonder it’s considered so masculine – or at least non-feminine. Compare it to red wine – we get phrases like “ruby coloured”, “voluptuous”, “soft on the palate”.

This isn’t very profound. In fact, this sounds like the opening of an article in Madison magazine.

I don’t have a lot to say about beer. When it’s cold, I like it better – that masks the flavour. When I next watch a game of tennis at a pub, I will order a beer and drink it with relish. I wish you all the enjoyment in the world in your consumption of beer.

    It’s true! And the logos often feature “masculine” animals: deer with big fuck-off antlers, lions. Leo points out beer ads a lot because of the animal content.
