The Wicked Witch Of The Yeast

Forget The Taste, We’ll Drink To Your Health

A "beer" that could prolong life and prevent illness has been created – but it apparently tastes awful. BioBeer has been genetically modified by students in Texas. It is brewed using a yeast called resveratrol, which is used in red wine and is thought to help prevent heart disease, diabetes and cancer.

FOOTNOTE: Hops scotched.

I wouldn't bother if it tastes that bad! Surely when they decided to make it, they must have factored TASTE into the equation?!

Healthy beer?! So, I am envisioning drunkards staggering down the street, paper-bag inclosed bottle in hand (or mouth) looking the picture of robust health at 110 years of age.

I don't think that's why people drink beer...why not just give us a shot of something else! lol

Of course if it's good for you it tastes horrendous! I swallowed many a spoon full of cod liver oil at my Granny Douglas's...talk about a bad taste...it was the bad taste that kept on giving!
