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.
It’s been a long while since I’ve had a Buxton Brewery beer! ‘LupulusX’ is their Single Hop Series where the recipe for the beers stay the same except for the hop variety used, which changes each time. In this case it is of course Citra. I picked this beer up from Tesco which recently released a new line up of craft beer. With a Club … Continue reading Beer Review: LupulusX (Citra) – Buxton Brewery
West Ham United had a massive win against Tottenham yesterday afternoon and I did the peculiar thing of celebrating with an Alcohol Free beer. Crazy I know, as after my last AF beer the risk was high of it putting a dampener on my sky high mood. My tipple of choice was the 0.5% version of Adnams’ famous ‘Ghost Ship’ Citrus Pale Ale. They’ve been … Continue reading Beer Review: Ghost Ship (AF) – Adnams
Treated myself to another beer from my local bottle shop with a completely new brewery for me. This brew is from UnBarred Brewery based out of Brighton and is part of their Single Hop Single Fruit (SHSF) series and is a NEIPA featuring Citra and passion fruit as the stars of the show. I quite like the idea of focusing down on one of each … Continue reading Beer Review: SHSF Citra & Passionfruit – UnBarred Brewery
It’s been a while since a beer review and they’ve been a bit sporadic this week as a result of me being on holiday. Can’t have everything revolving around beer now can we (although I did pick pick up a couple of brews while I was in the Peak District)! Today’s beer is from acclaimed brewers Neon Raptor based out of Nottingham. Another pick up … Continue reading Beer Review: All Signs Point To Fort Lauderdale – Neon Raptor Brewing Co.
It’s been a long while since I last had a Northern Monk beer. Some might argue too long. Thankfully there is an incredible new beer range landing in Morrison’s very soon including a couple of gorgeous sounding Northern Monk brews. In the meantime this is a Morrison’s staple ‘Rapscallion’ a 5.7% ABV Orange Zest IPA. The beer pours a straw gold colour with a big … Continue reading Beer Review: Rapscallion – Northern Monk
Today sees us returning to Fourpure Brewing Co. and a review I have been very much looking forward to making. Previously, I reviewed Fourpure’s Easy Peeler which was the session version of today’s beer; Juicebox Citrus IPA. I was not the biggest fan of the Easy Peeler and thought it was way to bitter, so was excited to see if the original version would be … Continue reading Beer Review: Juicebox – Fourpure Brewing Company
Today’s beer is from Hatherwood Craft Beer Company which is actually just Lidl’s own brand beer. In fact I found out the beer is actually brewed by historic British brewers Shepherd Neame which I think is a little cheeky on the advertising front. Anyway this is the Plunged Orange pale ale which I picked up for its relatively cheap price point, for a craft beer, … Continue reading Beer Review: Plunged Orange – Hatherwood Craft Beer Company (Lidl)
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
