Beer Review: Dry Hopped Lager – Calvors Brewery

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

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: We’re Jamming – The Hop Foundry (Aldi)

The pubs are back open!!! Which means I’ve been flat out the last couple of days at work and the reviews are coming a bit slower. As such I thought I’d revisit a simpler beer from Aldi’s Hop Foundry range. I recently tried their ‘Sharp Tongue‘ Grapefruit Pale Ale. Disappointing would be the polite way to describe that beer. ‘One of the worst beers I’ve … Continue reading Beer Review: We’re Jamming – The Hop Foundry (Aldi)

Beer Review: IKEA Öl Mörk Lager – Krönleins Bryggeri

My lovely friend at work Catherine generously gave me this beer to see what I thought about it. This beer has been brewed especially for IKEA stores by Krönleins Bryggeri who are a macro brewery, unsurprisingly, based in Sweden. This is a dark lager style beer which I’ve potentially had once before. I was a big fan of it then as it provides a really … Continue reading Beer Review: IKEA Öl Mörk Lager – Krönleins Bryggeri

Beer Review: Indian Pale Lager – 10-4 Brewing (Aldi)

In the same way Lidl have the Hatherwood Craft Beer Company, the good folks at Aldi have 10-4 Brewing. It’s their own-brand disguised as an independent brewer. I thought I’d pop into Aldi for the first time in ages to try and grab the much talked about BrewDog collaboration. While I sadly did not get that, I did pick up a selection of other beers. … Continue reading Beer Review: Indian Pale Lager – 10-4 Brewing (Aldi)

Beer Review: Keller Pils – Lost and Grounded

It’s getting cold, wet and dark so the indoor photos are getting more frequent unfortunately. This is a beer that I just keep on seeing and so when I went to grab a pizza from a new Italian place that opened near by, I though this could be a great accompaniment. From Bristol based brewers Lost and Grounded this is ‘Keller Pils’ a pilsner from … Continue reading Beer Review: Keller Pils – Lost and Grounded

Beer Review: In The Dark – Signature Brew

Picked up a beer by Signature Brew recently which is a brewery I know fairly well. Their ‘Backstage’ IPA is a staple in the pub I work at and it’s a lovely brew. Signature are known for combining beer and music and often do collaborations with artists. Today’s beer ‘In The Dark’ is brewed in collaboration with MCs Drs and Dynamite. It is a dark … Continue reading Beer Review: In The Dark – Signature Brew

Beer Review: Baltika 7 Export – Baltika Breweries

Back to work at the pub now. Which, while it may not be the job I want for ever, is at least a job in this climate. The reason I mention this is because I’m hoping it won’t impact how often I get to review beers because I’m really enjoying drinking and writing about all the weird and wonderful options out there. Today’s beer is … Continue reading Beer Review: Baltika 7 Export – Baltika Breweries

Beer Review: Blonde – Black Isle Brewery

Back to the Black Isle core range with their unfiltered lager; Blonde. I’ve got some incredibly funky beers on the way from Fourpure so these classic style beers from Black Isle Brewery are a nice intermediary. This lager comes in at a nice 4.5% ABV. Visually the beer has a straw/gold hue to it. The slightest haze coming from the unfiltered nature of the lager. … Continue reading Beer Review: Blonde – Black Isle Brewery
