It’s Lorenzo Beer Reviews’ one year anniversary today! I’ve had an absolute blast writing on this blog for the past year so thank you to everyone who has read one of my posts. Here’s to another year of drinking far too much beer! Instead of going for a big, expensive hype beer I thought I’d stick to my roots and try one from Lidl’s ongoing … Continue reading Beer Review: Gear Shifter – 71 Brewing Co.
My local brewery have taken a recent departure from their single-hop series to create some multi-hopped beers. The first one I’m trying is this pale ale hopped with Sabro, Mosaic and Idaho-7. I’m told it’s the first time they’ve used Sabro and that they were excited to brew with it. It comes in at a light and sessionable 4.5% ABV. The beer pours a gorgeous, … Continue reading Beer Review: Sabro Mosaic & Idaho-7 Pale Ale – Pretty Decent Beer Co.
Today’s review is on one of my dwindling supply of lovely Wylam beers I have. However, this time around, it is a beer that I’d consider completely out of left field for these guys. All the beers I’ve had have been gorgeous bold IPAs or big stouts but this is something completely different. It’s an English Best Bitter, simply named ‘Best’. It’s the only traditional … Continue reading Beer Review: Best – Wylam Brewery
It’s officially a week to go until my one year anniversary on the blog! Keep your eyes peeled as I am sure I will have something funky going on to mark the occasion. In the meantime we have another beer review. I recently picked up this Staggeringly Good beer from my local bottle shop/bodega Arch Rivals. It’s only my second beer from these folks and … Continue reading Beer Review: Souropod (Blood Orange, Apricot & Star Anise) – Staggeringly Good Brewery
I’ve been patiently awaiting the return of Lidl’s craft beer festival, and it is finally back in action this week. The lineup this time around sees the return of some amazing value brews such as Loch Lomond’s Zoom Time while also bringing in some new faces. One of the latest arrivals is this odd sounding beer from Wales based Boss Brewing. ‘Bubble Trouble’ is a … Continue reading Beer Review: Bubble Trouble – Boss Brewing
It’s a double bill Stout Sunday today with two bangers from Newcastle based Wylam brewery. These are from the beers I got for my birthday a while back. ‘Macchiato’ and its follow up ‘Imperial Macchiato’ are both hazelnut and praline, coffee porters but with the latter clocking in at over 10% ABV and having been aged in Buffalo Trace whiskey barrels! The original, which appears … Continue reading Beer Review: Macchiato // Imperial Macchiato – Wylam Brewery
Returning today with a beer from Abingdon on Thames based brewers Loose Cannon. This is another one of the beers my Mum got me thanks to her expiring air-miles. It’s a Blonde beer, although it doesn’t have that information on the label at all, and rocks up at a sessionable 4.2% ABV. It’s been a little while since I last had a proper real ale. … Continue reading Beer Review: Bombshell – Loose Cannon Brewery
Boris has just announced that hugs are back on the menu so naturally this beer by New Zealand brewers Yeastie Boys seemed the most appropriate. ‘Cuddle Party’ is described as a Nourishing Ale, which isn’t exactly a specific style of beer but does conjure a certain mental image. Brewed originally as a warming beer to help get through the last stretches of lockdown it comes … Continue reading Beer Review: Cuddle Party – Yeastie Boys
Your eyes do not deceive you, this is not a beer review but a Taproom Talk entry on my blog! It has been far too many months since we’ve been able to have a drink at a taproom and since I’ve been stuck at the pub most days, since the country has reopened slightly, I’ve only recently made it out to have a drink! A … Continue reading Mother Kelly’s (Stratford)
Today’s beer is a rather wacky sounding one from the folks over at London based brewery Exale. ‘Krankie’, named after the famous Scottish comedy act, is of course an Iron Brew flavoured sour beer. For those that have never heard of Irn-Bru it is the iconic drink from Scotland (just after whisky of course)! It’s a fizzy drink that has an almost indescribable flavour but … Continue reading Beer Review: Krankie – Exale Brewing
