From the moment I pop the top and catch a whiff of the tropical notes, to watching the beer cascade down into my glass...the anticipation builds.
I know what is coming, but still I wait. Swirl and sniff, smell it again, for the first time, the last time. Take a sip. Not a gulp, just a taste and get that pineapple, grapefruit and crisp citrus rolling around your head.
Juicy, bitter and oh so good. I won't rush, savour and sip till it is almost gone.
And then comes that final moment. The one I love and dread at once. The last taste comes too soon and then I am done.
Until I grab another one.
