Adnams East Green Carbon Neutral

I think it is great that Adnams have produced a Carbon Neutral beer, and hopefully more brewers will follow suit. I just wish the beer tasted nicer. As someone commented, "this was more flavour neutral than carbon neutral".

Luckily enough, my local pub is currently carrying East Green as one of its guest ales. Ignoring the tacky plastic (!) beer pump tag, I have to confess I supped a few pints last night, and admit that it's very nice - those in the know would probably call it a session beer.

However, as I awoke this morning a thought occurred to me, no doubt prompted by the actual reason I woke up so early. Adnams haven't thought this carbon neutral thing

Methane is 25 times more potent than CO2 as a greenhouse gas.

Do I need to continue?
