Most interesting to Mr. Oliver was the White House’s use of honey from its own hives, an ingredient often used by home brewers. 'This honey will give its own distinct flavor to the beer, but the sugars in honey will ferment completely, so the honey adds no sweetness,’' he said.
How does he think it would taste, extrapolating as a professional who is familiar with the ingredients and the methods?
'Light, crisp and dry, with some bready flavors from the malts, floral notes from the honey, and fruitiness from the British ale yeast,' Mr. Oliver said. 'Altogether pleasant, great with seafood and salads, goat cheeses, or hanging out in the sunshine in the Rose Garden.'’’
