We are going for something slightly different for today’s beer review. This beer comes from Scottish brewery Innis & Gunn with their Rum Barrel Red Beer – Blood Red Sky. What makes this an interesting beer for me to review is that firstly it is a red beer. It is not a style I’ve had many encounters with and so it is very much a … Continue reading Beer Review: Blood Red Sky – Innis & Gunn
We’ve gone for another new brewery for today’s beer! This one comes from Leeds based, North Brewing Co. and the beer is their best-selling American Pale Ale, Sputnik. It’s always fun trying your first beer from a new brewery so I was very excited going into this one! Visually the beer has a really good straw coloured, haze to it. The nose has strong citrus … Continue reading Beer Review: Sputnik – North Brewing Co.
Today’s beer review sees us return to Thornbridge Brewery. It was the 15th Anniversary of their flagship beer, Jaipur, a couple of days ago so it felt appropriate to give this multi-award winning IPA a try! Visually the beer is a nice clear, gold. From the image alone, you can really see the carbonation in the beer, creating a lovely, foamy white head. On the … Continue reading Beer Review: Jaipur – Thornbridge Brewery
Today’s review is quite special in that it is my first ever collaborative beer! This collaboration comes from craft beer heavy weights BrewDog and their ‘VS’ series of collaborations. It has been brewed with the team at Manchester based, Cloudwater Brewing Co. and they’ve gone for a New England IPA as the style. First of all the visual on this beer is amazing and looks … Continue reading Beer Review: New England IPA – BrewDog x Cloudwater
So, today’s beer review is another new brewery for me! This time we’ve got London based, Fourpure Brewing Company’s ‘Easy Peeler’ citrus session IPA. I believe Easy Peeler’s origins came from the desire to make a sessionable version of the brewery’s popular 5.9% Juicebox. As I’ve mentioned previously I’m a big fan of creating session beers from their stronger counterparts! The colour of the beer … Continue reading Beer Review: Easy Peeler – Fourpure Brewing Company
Today’s review is on Northern Monk’s hazy pale ale ‘Faith’. I’d heard good things about this brewery so was very excited about trying my first beer from them! Visually the beer has a great hazy, straw colour to it. Really good carbonation made for a lovely white head. On the nose I got nice notes of orange peel. The flavour, however is where this beer … Continue reading Beer Review: Faith – Northern Monk
Today’s review comes from Somerset based brewery The Wild Beer Co. and their big bodied pale ale ‘Bibble’ I’m a big fan of Pale Ales so was excited going into my first beer from this brewery. It has a lovely amber colour to it and good carbonation creating a nice white head. For me, a very pleasant nose with strong tropical notes to it. The … Continue reading Beer Review: Bibble – The Wild Beer Co.
Today’s review is going to be on the Session Edition of Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.’s ‘Hazy Little Thing’ IPA! Hazy Little Thing is a classic 4.6% ABV IPA. The citrus, grapefruit nose is very pleasant. The beer itself is light and refreshing but equally has a good hop to it as you would expect from a a good IPA. In terms of IPAs as a … Continue reading Beer Review: Hazy Little Thing (Session Edition) – Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.
