The penultimate of the Black Isle Brewery core range left to review. Working in a pub ironically leaves less time for beer so will be another quick one today from the back log. This is 21 Pale a (unsurprisingly) pale ale that was brewed to celebrate Black Isles 21st birthday. As with all their beers it comes in at a light 4.1% ABV. The beer … Continue reading Beer Review: 21 Pale – Black Isle Brewery
Another new brewery featured in the Lidl beer festival, however, not from Scotland but from Swansea in Wales. This is Boss Brewing and their Peanut Butter Pale ‘Nutjob’. Very interesting concept I think as the typical beer style to carry peanut flavours is often the stout, so to see it in a pale ale could go either way in my eyes. Boss Brewing also has … Continue reading Beer Review: Nutjob – Boss Brewing
Finally getting back to one of the Fourpure Globetrotter beers. Had these for a while now but I wanted to try and review some of those Lidl beers first. Another super interesting one this is ‘Lantern’ an Earl Grey Session IPA brewed with Earl Grey tea, at a light 3.7% ABV. The previous two were really good so expectations are being maintained high for this … Continue reading Beer Review: Lantern – Fourpure Brewing Co.
Today’s beer is all kinds of great! It’s a new brewery first and foremost. It’s a completely new style for me. It’s gluten free so the old man can have them. And lastly it’s dirty cheap from the Lidl Scottish Beer Fest! This is Manchester based First Chop and this is a can of their Syl Black IPA. Named after the artist Syl Johnson, who … Continue reading Beer Review: Syl – First Chop
A quick review today, as I delve into the backlog of beers that need writing up. Another from Black Isle Brewery’s core range with Red Kite. Named after the bird that was released in the area, it is an unfiltered amber ale. You’ll have to excuse the change of scenery as rain at the time prevented me from using the usual spot up the garden … Continue reading Beer Review: Red Kite – Black Isle Brewery
We are taking part in Stout Sunday today with another from the Lidl Scottish Beer Fest range! This is from Barney’s Beer in Edinburgh and is their Marshmallow Milk Stout. At the 2018 Scottish Beer Awards this stout won the Bronze Award, so I’d argue expectations are certainly slightly higher. Coming in it a strong 7.4% ABV let’s get into this review! The beer pours … Continue reading Beer Review: Marshmallow Milk Stout – Barney’s Beer
Trying to focus on the Lidl reviews at the moment to give people a chance to buy them before they disappear from the stores! We’ve had a couple of Drygate beers at this point and this one is ‘Tone Burst’ a Rhubarb Berliner Weisse. In accordance to the style, it is a a low 3.2% ABV which might be the lowest so far on the … Continue reading Beer Review: Tone Burst – Drygate Brewing Co.
I have a big backlog of beers at the moment and I’ve bumped this one up the review queue for two main reasons. Firstly, it’s another Lidl Beer Fest brew. Secondly, check out that glass! I am so lucky to be surrounded by some amazing friends, two of which sent me this incredible engraved stem glass under my Instagram handle. I couldn’t wait for the … Continue reading Beer Review: NEIPA (Galaxy/Amarillo) – Stewart Brewing
It’s an exciting time in the craft beer world as it is Lidl’s Scottish Craft Beer Festival! By the time I get through reviewing and uploading them all I imagine it will be over so if you are feeling adventurous get down to one as soon as possible. Thankfully taking a risk on these beers wont break the bank as even the large 440ml cans … Continue reading Beer Review: Lost in Mosiac – Loch Lomond Brewery
The last beer I reviewed while on holiday in glorious Cornwall. This is the second beer from Fourpure’s Globetrotter bundle. This is Jazz Age; a 7.4% ABV Espresso Martini Stout. The combination of those two things on paper seems like a match made in heaven in all honesty. I chose to bring this one down for my friends to try as, despite many not being … Continue reading Beer Review: Jazz Age – Fourpure Brewing Co.
