I was recently in Southampton seeing some friends, so naturally the first thing I check is what the local breweries are! I saw Dancing Man pop up on Google Maps and my mate said it was really popular. While we were there, I sunk about four different pints of which ‘Did You See The Size Of That Chicken?’ was my absolute favourite. I decided to … Continue reading Beer Review: Did You See The Size Of That Chicken? – Dancing Man Brewery
Happy Father’s Day to people in the UK! Today’s beer was released by Lidl to mark this occasion and just cropped up in the beer isle last week. ‘Total Legend’ is a 6.6% ABV dark ale that, according to Untappd, is contract brewed by veterans Marston’s for Lidl’s own brand beer label ‘Hatherwood’. I’ve found that traditional ales seem to be better in the own … Continue reading Beer Review: Total Legend – Hatherwood Craft Beer Company (Lidl)
Continuing with the lagers today, considering the weather is holding up nicely for us at the moment! I picked this up from the range that’s still available in Lidl right now. Although the last time I was there shopping it looked like their stocks of craft beer are diminishing so get your hand on the good stuff as soon as possible. This beer is from … Continue reading Beer Review: Dry Hopped Lager – Calvors Brewery
Tesco recently had some new beers drop into their stores from some rather major UK breweries. There was a bit of a discussion on various craft beer forums about these breweries potentially dropping their high standards to enter the UK supermarkets. As such I thought I’d give them a go to see if they were any good. This beer is from Vault City, a Scottish … Continue reading Beer Review: Tropical Sour – Vault City Brewing
It’s been far too long since I’ve uploaded a review. I’ve had a rather busy week at work and I also headed out of London for a couple of days to see some friends (and drink some beer)! The weather is scorching right now which means it’s time to crack open the lagers. This one is from Scottish brewers Fierce Beer and it’s their core … Continue reading Beer Review: Fierce Pilsner – Fierce Beer
Today we return to one of my favourite aspects of the blog: Taproom Talk! Courtesy of work I got the opportunity to visit North London base Two Tribes’ very new taproom. Having only just opened when restriction began lifting on April 12th Campfire is situated in the Tileyard, North London in between Camden and Islington and surrounded by various music studios and offices. The taproom … Continue reading Campfire, Two Tribes Brewery
Over the last couple months, Northern Monk have released several new beers into both Morrisons and Tesco. It’s no secret that I’m a fan of their beers so naturally I’ve picked them all up. Today’s beer is called ‘Mangoes on with Faith’ and it is a mango pale ale. It’s a twist on the recipe of their core range beer ‘Faith’ which I reviewed many … Continue reading Beer Review: Mangoes on with Faith – Northern Monk
Today I’m returning back to my local brewery with their other latest release. It’s an IPA featuring Mosaic, once again, but with the headlining hop being Strata this time, rather than Sabro. This is one of Pretty Decent Beer Co’s strongest beers of late, coming in at 6.5%. When I spoke to them about this beer the other the day they were very happy with … Continue reading Beer Review: Strata & Mosaic – Pretty Decent Beer Co.
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.
