With the current situation I don’t think I’d honestly be able to keep Dry January going! However, I’ve thought I’d try and cut back a little this month. I picked up a selection of alcohol free beers from my last trip to Morrisons to give them a go and see if there are any readily available low or no alcohol beers that also taste good. … Continue reading Beer Review: Without (Gold) – St Peter’s Brewery
Today’s beer review sees us return to something I’ve not done in a while. Well two things actually: a low alcohol beer and a beer from Thornbridge! Always a bit apprehensive picking up AF beers not because I have an inherent dislike to them but more because they often aren’t that great. This is ‘Zero Five’, a low alcohol pale ale named as such because … Continue reading Beer Review: Zero Five -Thornbridge 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.
We’ve gone for a double bill today with another Siren Craft Brew beer. This time around we’ve got one of their core beers Soundwave IPA. Classic IPA visual on the beer, pouring a nice slightly hazy, straw colour and produced a nice white head. Soundwave has a an incredible nose to it. You really get mango and pineapple chunks coming from it giving off a … Continue reading Beer Review: Soundwave – Siren Craft Brew
Heading back into my much loved sour beer territory today with Siren Craft Brew and their Grapefruit Sour IPA, Pompelmocello (if that isn’t a mouthful of a name I don’t know what is)! Siren is a brewery with which I have a decent bit of experience with. At the pub I work at we regularly get their beers for our cask lines and they are … Continue reading Beer Review: Pompelmocello – Siren Craft Brew
Today we’ve got our second beer from Leeds based Northern Monk. This time round we’ve got a can of the first ever beer they brewed; New World IPA. I recently had their pale ale ‘Faith’ and I was blown away by how good that was so expectations were rather high going into this! Visually you’ve got that classic IPA colour, a nice deep gold with … Continue reading Beer Review: New World – Northern Monk
We are going for something slightly different for today’s beer review. This beer comes from Scottish brewery Innis & Gunn with their Rum Barrel Red Beer – Blood Red Sky. What makes this an interesting beer for me to review is that firstly it is a red beer. It is not a style I’ve had many encounters with and so it is very much a … Continue reading Beer Review: Blood Red Sky – Innis & Gunn
We’ve gone for another new brewery for today’s beer! This one comes from Leeds based, North Brewing Co. and the beer is their best-selling American Pale Ale, Sputnik. It’s always fun trying your first beer from a new brewery so I was very excited going into this one! Visually the beer has a really good straw coloured, haze to it. The nose has strong citrus … Continue reading Beer Review: Sputnik – North Brewing Co.
Today’s beer review sees us return to Thornbridge Brewery. It was the 15th Anniversary of their flagship beer, Jaipur, a couple of days ago so it felt appropriate to give this multi-award winning IPA a try! Visually the beer is a nice clear, gold. From the image alone, you can really see the carbonation in the beer, creating a lovely, foamy white head. On the … Continue reading Beer Review: Jaipur – Thornbridge Brewery
Today’s review is quite special in that it is my first ever collaborative beer! This collaboration comes from craft beer heavy weights BrewDog and their ‘VS’ series of collaborations. It has been brewed with the team at Manchester based, Cloudwater Brewing Co. and they’ve gone for a New England IPA as the style. First of all the visual on this beer is amazing and looks … Continue reading Beer Review: New England IPA – BrewDog x Cloudwater
