It was the wonderful month of October, so naturally Lidl have a couple of Oktoberfest themed beers out. If you’ve followed my blog for a little bit you’ll also know that I love an own-brand beer review so I couldn’t help but buy both. First up is the Wheat Beer. I was very curious to see how it was executed but being as though Lidl … Continue reading Beer Review: Wheat Beer – Lidl
Lidl have been really keeping the craft beers stocked up with back to back drops of new beers in the last couple of months. As always Scottish brewers 71 Brewing Co are frequent appearance makers on the supermarket shelves. ‘Pink Lemon Loca’ is perhaps one the more interesting sounding beers from 71 Brewing to make their way into Lidl. It’s a 4.5% ABV Lemon and … Continue reading Beer Review: Pink Lemon Loca – 71 Brewing Co.
I was wandering around Lidl doing the weekly shop recently when out of the corner of my eye I spot something nostalgic. Something very nostalgic indeed. I was instantly drawn to the holy grail of cartoon beer much like how Homer Simpson is. Duff Beer! I would say I was shocked to see such a thing in Lidl, but realistically we’ve all seen far more … Continue reading Beer Review: Duff Beer – Fizz Beverage
My penultimate review from the beers I tried up in Scotland. This one is from Dundee based 71 Brewing from who I’ve tried a few beers previously. ‘Luminous Lights’ is a Limited Edition beer that I picked up from Lidl and it’s a 5.2% New England IPA. I’ve previously tasted, but not reviewed, 71 Brewing’s ‘Luminous Nights’ which was a boozy DIPA. It wasn’t too … Continue reading Beer Review: Luminous Lights – 71 Brewing Co.
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
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.
I’ve been patiently awaiting the return of Lidl’s craft beer festival, and it is finally back in action this week. The lineup this time around sees the return of some amazing value brews such as Loch Lomond’s Zoom Time while also bringing in some new faces. One of the latest arrivals is this odd sounding beer from Wales based Boss Brewing. ‘Bubble Trouble’ is a … Continue reading Beer Review: Bubble Trouble – Boss Brewing
I’ve gone alcohol free today. Felt like I needed a break after a weekend of heavy drinking after finding out Christmas had been cancelled. I’m sure some can relate! Another Lidl own brand beer today as well, with the difference being it’s not marketed under their craft beer brand Hatherwood. It’s part of their imported German range contract brewed by Privatbrauerei Eichbaum. ‘Patronus’ is a … Continue reading Beer Review: Patronus (Alcohol Free) – Privatbrauerei Eichbaum (Lidl)
I’ve recently discovered a new style of beer: the winter ale. Naturally, it’s a Christmas period exclusive and many breweries appear to have a yearly tradition of brewing this one off seasonal special. I enjoy reviewing some own brand beers and particularly Lidl’s. As always these beer are contract brewed, with this one being assigned to big regional brewers, Marstons. This ‘Winter Special’ Ale comes … Continue reading Beer Review: Winter Special – Hatherwood Craft Beer Company (Lidl)
