The Oddbins Take

We're not supposed to have favourites, bi-partisan as we are but we must confess, X is definitely our favourite letter in the alphabet! We know, we know, we should show love to all the letters we represent but X is just so cool, can you think of a word beginning with X that isn't excellent? Xylophone – way better than a glockenspiel! Xenon – The noblest of noble gases! Xenophobe – O… So, there's one bad word beginning with X, that's still a pretty good return.

It is also the first letter of one of our favourite beers; XPA by Five points Brewery is a light and tropical extra pale ale with assertive hoppy bitterness, aromas of mango and passionfruit, and at 4% ABV its is extra drinkable too!
(Audible versions of this tasting note ended in a Xylophone solo.)
