There have been reports in Israeli newspapers recently which state that some clever engineers and entrepreneurs in that country have developed a beer which contains laughing gas. The team has infused nitrous oxide with Czech beer and is seeking approval from the Israeli ministry of health for approval to sell the beer. They have also been playing around with infusing the gas with vodka too and also hope to launch it shortly as well. The laughing gas only lasts a split second in the body and the sudden rush is meant to make the drinker laugh- sounds like fun. The gas is a controlled substance in Israel so there is going to be quiet a bit of red tape and checking before it is deemed safe and ok to put on the market. The engineers are hoping it will help relieve some of the stress which hangs over the head of many Israeli drinkers.
With a name like Desperados and being a Tequila flavoured beer you would expect this is a drop from Mexico but no its from the land of cheese and onions France. The tequila gives the beer quiet a kick although the alcohol level is 5.9% you can really feel the heat from the spirit. The beer is quiet refreshing expecially that little bit colder than usual, its a full bodied larger and a lovely golden colour. Like the Mexican beers a slice of lemon or lime really brings out a refreshing flavor. Look for it next time you go beer shopping you won’t be dissapointed!
When you think of beer, Turkish beers really don’t come to mind but they have a tasty assortment of beverages including their most popular Efes Pilsen. Efes is available world wide and has a very crisp and refreshing taste making up about 80% of the local Turkish market. Efes is produced by a subsidiary of the Anadolu Group who have the Turkish license to produce Australia’s Fosters Lager for the Middle East and Africa. There are a range of Efes products including a dry, extra , a dark, a light and one called Marmara but the Pilsner is really all you will find outside Turkey. The Pilsen has been manufactured since 1969 and contains 5% alcohol volume. So next time your having a pizza or kebab try an Efes you won’t be disappointed.
