Beer Review: Vienna Lager – Wild Craft Brewing

I’ve been trying quite a few lagers recently which is quite unlike me, as typically I only have lager in the form of a certain Danish pilsner. Maybe I’ve got the Oktoberfest bug which has resulted in tasting the more interesting side of arguably one of the less interesting beers styles. ‘Vienna Lager’ is a beer from Wild Craft Brewery and is brewed with the … Continue reading Beer Review: Vienna Lager – Wild Craft Brewing

Beer Reviews: Oktoberwest – Westerham Brewery

The month of October, in the beer world, is best associated with the biggest beer festival in the world. Oktoberfest! To celebrate I’m setting myself the challenge to post a review everyday for the duration of the month. And to kick it off I am of course going for an Oktoberfest themed beer called ‘Oktoberwest’. Brewed by Westerham brewery in Kent it is a Marzen … Continue reading Beer Reviews: Oktoberwest – Westerham Brewery

Beer Review: Fierce Pilsner – Fierce Beer

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

Beer Review: Fierce Rhubarb – Fierce Beer

Work has been non-stop at the moment. Unsurprisingly, it seems everyone is very keen to get into a pub garden with friends and have a pint. So as it stands I’ve been stealing away little moments to try a beer and review it. This beer was gifted to me as a late birthday present by my cracking friend Ryan! Fierce Beer is a brewery based … Continue reading Beer Review: Fierce Rhubarb – Fierce Beer

Beer Review: Elvis Impersonator – Brass Castle Brewery

Hitting up Stout Sunday with another beer from the folks at Brass Castle Brewery. My Dad was treating himself to an order recently from Taylor’s Gluten Free Beer Network and I asked him if he could tack on this weird beer for me. ‘Elvis Impersonator’ is a Banana, Facon (fake bacon) and Peanut Butter Porter rocking up at 6.7% ABV. Of course, the beer is … Continue reading Beer Review: Elvis Impersonator – Brass Castle Brewery

Beer Review: Hopfest – Mad Squirrel Brewery

I found another railway arch bottle shop and bar, near where I live, recently and I thought I’d pay them a visit and grab some beers. I went for some new breweries including this one from Hemel Hempstead based Mad Squirrel. ‘Hopfest’ is their gluten free option in the form of a pale ale at 3.8% ABV. Visually the beer pours a slightly hazy-gold straw … Continue reading Beer Review: Hopfest – Mad Squirrel Brewery

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: 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: Heretic – Brass Castle Brewery

My Dad placed another order through Taylor’s Gluten Free Beer Network recently, predominantly to try some more beers from potentially his current favourite brewery: Brass Castle. They are possibly the most experimental gluten free brewery I’ve seen. They make GF beers in a whole host of styles with some wacky flavours to boot. Today’s brew is no different. ‘Heretic’ is a 6.4% Saffron and Cracked … Continue reading Beer Review: Heretic – Brass Castle Brewery

Beer Review: Pine Trail – Big Drop Brewing Co.

Dry January may be over but I’m a little hooked on trying to find some stand out alcohol free beers that can hold their own against their boozy counterparts. After the very successful tasting of Big Drops milk stout last week I thought I’d give them another go. ‘Pine Trail’ is a pale ale and a silver medalist at the World Beer Awards. As with … Continue reading Beer Review: Pine Trail – Big Drop Brewing Co.
