Beer Review: John Hampden’s Golden Harvest Ale – The Chiltern Brewery

View Post My wonderful friend Carl got me a personalised pint glass for my birthday! I thought a nice, classic ale would do it the best justice so my Dad let me pinch one of his Chiltern Brewery beers. He recently bought himself a big mix pack of their gluten free ales and has been telling me how much he enjoys them. I’m fan of … Continue reading Beer Review: John Hampden’s Golden Harvest Ale – The Chiltern Brewery

Beer Review: Hefeweizen (Alcohol Free) – Rothaus

It’s my birthday today! And while I would love my body to be a temple I will not be celebrating my lock-down birthday with alcohol free beer. Today’s review is going to be AF but it’s from my more tame Sunday. It’s been a while since I’ve had a wheat beer and the last one I had was low alcohol. It was one of the … Continue reading Beer Review: Hefeweizen (Alcohol Free) – Rothaus

Beer Review: Neutrino – Atom

It’s Stout Sunday and today I’m reviewing the last beer from my Premier Hop order I made just before Christmas. All the beers I bought have been solid to outstanding so once I’ve whittled down my recent supermarket purchases I may have to treat myself to another order. I’ve gone for yet another new brewery, this time based in Hull, in the form of Atom! … Continue reading Beer Review: Neutrino – Atom

Beer Review: Mallow Laser Quest – BrewDog

Tesco have a new beer range in! It’s been absolutely ages since the supermarkets updated their craft beer selection but it appears that Tesco are the first to stick some new brews on the shelves in 2021. The new range includes some of the typical breweries that have been stocked previously so their aren’t any crazy surprises. However, they are all breweries that produce dependable … Continue reading Beer Review: Mallow Laser Quest – BrewDog

Beer Review: An Gof – Lizard Ales

Today’s review is one I’ve had kicking about for quite a while. I picked up ‘An Gof’ by Lizard Ales from the Asda in Falmouth when I was last there, which was a good few months ago now. It’s a bottle conditioned Strong Cornish Ale so I’m imagining a very traditional style British beer. Lizard Ales seem a rather interesting micro brewery. They brew out … Continue reading Beer Review: An Gof – Lizard Ales

Beer Review: Petite Saison – Burning Sky

I’m firing on all cylinders at the moment when it comes to trying new breweries! Today’s beer is from South Downs based Burning Sky with a beer from, their core range: ‘Petite Saison’. I have very little experience with the saison style but I understand they often have that sort of farmhouse sourness to them while having a bit of spice and high carbonation levels. … Continue reading Beer Review: Petite Saison – Burning Sky

Beer Review: Chromatic – BOXCAR

Another new London based brewery for me today in the form of BOXCAR. I picked this up from my lovely little bottle shop/bodega Arch Rivals who have been consistently bringing in awesome new breweries I’ve never heard of before. This is ‘Chromatic’ a Double Dry Hopped IPA at a sensible 6% ABV. The beer pours a really appetising pale straw gold colour. A nose packed … Continue reading Beer Review: Chromatic – BOXCAR

Beer Review: Pizzazz – Brass Castle

My old man recently did a (not so) little purchase from what I consider the most experimental gluten free brewery going. More importantly I have been permitted to occasionally taste and try some of these crazy concoctions or, in the case of today’s beer, he has treated me to the whole thing! This is Brass Castle’s ‘Pizzazz’ a sun-dried tomato and sweet basil gose. Yes … Continue reading Beer Review: Pizzazz – Brass Castle

Beer Review: Deep Dark – Exale Brewing

Hitting up Stout Sunday this week with a new brewery that isn’t too far from where I live. Exale Brewing is based in East London, near the River Lee. ‘Deep Dark’ is without a doubt a contender for one of the most bizarre sounding beers I’ve seen. It is a stout featuring seaweed, oyster and black pepper with actual crushed oyster shells used in the … Continue reading Beer Review: Deep Dark – Exale Brewing

Beer Review: 15 Mile Round Trip – Vocation x Sure Shot

Tesco are going to have a fresh drop of new craft beer hitting their shelves sometime next week. In celebration I thought I’d finally get around to reviewing this beer from the previous release. ’15 Mile Round Trip’ is a double IPA brewed in collaboration between Vocation and soon-to-be brewery Sure Shot. The name of the beer actually has it’s own origin story too. It … Continue reading Beer Review: 15 Mile Round Trip – Vocation x Sure Shot
