Beer Review: Pornstar Martini Ale – Cold Town Beer

A tipple from Christmas day itself! A recent addition to the craft beer shelves of Lidl, Cold Town Beer, like many that appear on the budget supermarkets shelves, is from Scotland. Edinburgh to be precise. A fairly recent brewery, having started in 2018, they had a couple of weird sounding beers that naturally I had to pick up. First on the roster is their ‘Pornstar … Continue reading Beer Review: Pornstar Martini Ale – Cold Town Beer

Beer Review: Das Ist Techno Sex – Up Front Brewing

Today’s beer was also a gift (lots of my stock are to be fair, I’m very easy to buy for) from a friend at work! ‘Das Ist Techno Sex’ is a Passion fruit and Key Lime Gose from nomadic Glasgow brewers ‘Up Front’. The term ‘nomadic’ in the beer world tends to mean a brewery that rents/hires another brewery to make their beer as they … Continue reading Beer Review: Das Ist Techno Sex – Up Front Brewing

Beer Review: Mangolicious – Laine Brew Co.

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Apologies for the absence of beer reviews in the last couple of weeks. I thought heading into January would mean more time for myself. Who could have guessed that running a pub is a full time gig!! While it has prevented me from writing reviews it certainly hasn’t stopped me from drinking beer. One of my lovely friends from work gave me … Continue reading Beer Review: Mangolicious – Laine Brew Co.

Beer Review: Tropical Sour – Vault City Brewing

Tesco recently had some new beers drop into their stores from some rather major UK breweries. There was a bit of a discussion on various craft beer forums about these breweries potentially dropping their high standards to enter the UK supermarkets. As such I thought I’d give them a go to see if they were any good. This beer is from Vault City, a Scottish … Continue reading Beer Review: Tropical Sour – Vault City Brewing

Beer Review: Milkshake IPA – Pretty Decent Beer Co.

Following up from their Single Hop Series my local brewery Pretty Decent are looking to get a little funkier with some of their upcoming brews. Their latest offering is a Milkshake IPA with heavy amounts of pineapple and passion fruit added in. I’ve never had a milkshake IPA before but I have had plenty of beers that have added lactose. The distinction is the combination … Continue reading Beer Review: Milkshake IPA – Pretty Decent Beer Co.

Beer Review: Tropic Like It’s Hop – Innis & Gunn

Hectic work schedule has meant less time for beer reviews, so I squeeze them in when I can! Today’s review is a throwback to a brewery I haven’t had since I first started the blog. Scottish brewers Innis & Gunn’s ‘Blood Red Sky’ was amazing so I have high hopes for ‘Tropic Like It’s Hop’, their passion fruit pale ale. I picked this up from … Continue reading Beer Review: Tropic Like It’s Hop – Innis & Gunn

Beer Review: SHSF Citra & Passionfruit – UnBarred Brewery

Treated myself to another beer from my local bottle shop with a completely new brewery for me. This brew is from UnBarred Brewery based out of Brighton and is part of their Single Hop Single Fruit (SHSF) series and is a NEIPA featuring Citra and passion fruit as the stars of the show. I quite like the idea of focusing down on one of each … Continue reading Beer Review: SHSF Citra & Passionfruit – UnBarred Brewery
