Lidl has launched a creamy new Marshmallow Beer and it apparently tastes just like the sweets.
The beer forms part of the supermarket’s Craft Beer Festival, which kicks off this week (August 6).
There’s something to suit everyone in the range, which starts from just £1.29 a bottle.
From fruity pale ales to punchy IPAs, beer fans are pretty much sorted for summer.
However, it’s the sweetie-inspired beer, by Edinburgh-based company Barney’s Beer, that caught our eye.
Lidl’s beer perfect for a sweet tooth
Perfect if you’ve got a sweet tooth, it apparently tastes just like toasted marshmallows.
So you can forsake the campfire this weekend and enjoy the heatwave with a Marshmallow Beer in hand!
In case you hadn’t heard, temperatures could reach 37˚C in the south this weekend, so an ice cold beer may well be needed to quench your thirst.
And there’s surely none better than this little beauty.
“Chocolate and vanilla with a subtle roasted coffee aroma and sweetness come together in this Marshmallow Milk Stout from Barney’s Beer,” the blurb states.
Anyone else craving @barneybeer’s Marshmallow Beer?
“The flavours of deconstructed marshmallow roasted on an open fire is thanks to the use of lactose for a smooth, creamy sweetness and vanilla for that distinctive roasted marshmallow taste,” it added.
The beer costs £1.69 for a 330ml bottle.
And it looks pretty special too.
It has a retro 1950s-diner style bottle, with pretty pink writing emblazoned across the front.
“Anyone else craving @barneybeer’s Marshmallow Beer?” said one fan on Instagram.
If you’re keen to try it, it’s available in store now.
