“Bilk” reportedly has a fruity taste which manufacturers hope will be appealing to women.Seeing as I don’t like milk in my tea, I probably won't like milk in my beer, despite the fruity taste and the desperate hope of the brewers that the beer may appeal to women. I am a woman and, frankly, sweet or not, “bilk” sounds more like an effort to cheat me out of “real” beer than an effort to increase my calcium intake. Maybe a different name would be more appealing, like "meer," for instance. The company could always use a meerkat on their label.
After they [the brewers] added beer yeast and hops and began the fermentation process, the beverage looked and smelled like tea with milk. However, when fermentation was finished and the drink cooled, it had the same color as beer.
In the meantime, one Guinness in a glass, please (but only in moderation, like once every three to six months).
