Beer of the moment: Fischer

The summer usually dictates less red and more white / rosé hues, round these parts anyway, and occasionally a smidgeon of refreshingly chilled beer. Many of my favourite French beers come from Alsace - and I don't mean that well-known monster brand I won't bother naming - and one in particular, Fischer, always hits the spot. Miles, or rather kilometres, better than most Brit-type "lager" or US-style "lite" stuff, perhaps not as characterful as certain Belgian beers or quite as incisively Pils-y in that German or Czech way; but consistently tasty and palate-cleansing while still quite "full-bodied" (6% alc. I think). About €1.50 for a big (66cl) bottle in most French supermarkets.
