Beer Review: Mangoes on with Faith – Northern Monk

Over the last couple months, Northern Monk have released several new beers into both Morrisons and Tesco. It’s no secret that I’m a fan of their beers so naturally I’ve picked them all up. Today’s beer is called ‘Mangoes on with Faith’ and it is a mango pale ale. It’s a twist on the recipe of their core range beer ‘Faith’ which I reviewed many … Continue reading Beer Review: Mangoes on with Faith – Northern Monk

Beer Review: Sabro Mosaic & Idaho-7 Pale Ale – Pretty Decent Beer Co.

My local brewery have taken a recent departure from their single-hop series to create some multi-hopped beers. The first one I’m trying is this pale ale hopped with Sabro, Mosaic and Idaho-7. I’m told it’s the first time they’ve used Sabro and that they were excited to brew with it. It comes in at a light and sessionable 4.5% ABV. The beer pours a gorgeous, … Continue reading Beer Review: Sabro Mosaic & Idaho-7 Pale Ale – Pretty Decent Beer Co.

Beer Review: Bubble Trouble – Boss Brewing

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

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: Crusaders of the Atom – Wylam Brewery

I’ve still got some of my Wylam birthday brews to try and I thought I’d go for their lightest ABV offering from the batch. ‘Crusaders of the Atom’ is a sesssion pale ale coming in at 3.8% ABV. I’m so used to having bigger, boozier beers at the moment that it’s nice to fall back on something lighter and see if the brewer can still … Continue reading Beer Review: Crusaders of the Atom – Wylam Brewery

Beer Review: Rhubarbra Streisand – Brew York

As I previously mentioned, on my Mikkeller low alcohol post, Sainsbury’s have a range of six craft beers in at the moment. This new range appears to be a collaboration between the supermarket and online beer retailer Beer Hawk who have compiled a variety of different styles from various breweries across the country. Today’s beer is from Brew York, a brewery I’ve heard lots about … Continue reading Beer Review: Rhubarbra Streisand – Brew York

Beer Review: Sharp Tongue – The Hop Foundry (Aldi)

If you’ve followed the blog for a bit now you’ll know that while I love trying and reviewing the fancier side of craft beer I also enjoy testing out some of the supermarket own-brand concoctions. I recently found out that Aldi’s craft beer brand ‘The Hop Foundry’ added some new beers to their range. Today’s brew is ‘Sharp Tongue’, it’s a Grapefruit Pale Ale at … Continue reading Beer Review: Sharp Tongue – The Hop Foundry (Aldi)

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: The Daily Mash 2020 Souvenir Edition – Northern Monk x The Daily Mash

A very unique beer today in the form of a collaboration. Rather than it being a collaborative beer between two breweries this commemorative brew is between one of my favourite brewers Northern Monk and the satirical online news page The Daily Mash. To commemorate (or perhaps commiserate) the year that was 2020 they brewed a 5% ABV pale ale with some of the best headlines … Continue reading Beer Review: The Daily Mash 2020 Souvenir Edition – Northern Monk x The Daily Mash
