Beer Review: Ossian – Inveralmond Brewery

Naturally, being in Scotland, I have of course purchased a few beers from some classic Scottish brewers. This beer is from Inveralmond Brewery, who I haven’t heard of, and who are the sister brewery to the more widely known Innis & Gunn. Long time readers will know that golden ales are my favourite traditional ale style so this was a no brain pick up in … Continue reading Beer Review: Ossian – Inveralmond Brewery

Beer Review: Other World – Utopian Brewing x Yeastie Boys

Today’s review is a collaborative brew between one of my favourite breweries at the moment, Yeastie Boys, and the primarily lager focused Utopian Brewing who are based in Devon! Interestingly, it is Utopian who brew Yeastie Boys’ beers for them here in the UK as they are, of course, a New Zealand based brewery. Instead of a lager, they’ve collaborated on an Extra Special Bitter, … Continue reading Beer Review: Other World – Utopian Brewing x Yeastie Boys

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: Layer Cake – BrewDog

Much like how I’ve been meaning to watch the movie ‘Layer Cake’ for a while, I’ve equally had this beer in the fridge to try for a couple months. Released into Morrisons by heavyweights BrewDog, ‘Layer Cake’ is a 7% ABV Marshmallow and Chocolate Stout. I’m always a little concerned of marshmallow flavours in a stout because I’ve found it has the tendency to make … Continue reading Beer Review: Layer Cake – BrewDog

Beer Review: Forbidden Fruit – Stewart Brewing

I have so many beers in the fridge at the moment it’s hard to keep track! This is one I’ve had for a little bit now that I picked up at Lidl a couple months back. Stewart Brewing is based in Scotland and I’ve had a couple of their brews in the past. This is ‘Forbidden Fruit’ a Grapefruit Pale Ale at a fairly sessionable … Continue reading Beer Review: Forbidden Fruit – Stewart Brewing

Beer Review: ALD IPA // Punk IPA // Anti Establishment – BrewDog & Aldi

Happy New Year folks! Thank you to everyone who has read a post of mine over the last year. It’s been incredibly fun to do and has helped get me through some of these lockdown woes. To ring in 2021 I’ve got a special first post of the year: A Tale of Three Tinnies! A few months back there was some social media banter going … Continue reading Beer Review: ALD IPA // Punk IPA // Anti Establishment – BrewDog & Aldi

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: Daft Days – Bellfield Brewery

The old man really enjoyed Bellfield Brewery’s ‘Lawless Village IPA’ so when he saw they had an offer for a mixed case of their gluten free beers he did not hesitate. Perhaps the most anticipated brew of the bunch was ‘Daft Days’ a 5.5% ABV porter. Dark beers seem to be in short supply in the gluten free beer sector and despite all his attempts … Continue reading Beer Review: Daft Days – Bellfield Brewery

Beer Review: Barnard Castle Eye Test – BrewDog

A incredibly generous friend has meant that I’ve been able to sample one of the UK’s most talked about 2020 beers! BrewDog produced ‘Barnard Castle Eye Test’ after a certain high profile quarantine breach during the first Lockdown. The beer was so popular it sold out very quickly. They’ve done one more release recently during which my friend bought a case. This brilliantly political beer … Continue reading Beer Review: Barnard Castle Eye Test – BrewDog

Beer Review: Chokka Blokka – Williams Bros. Brewing Co.

It’s International Stout Day today so of course I had to go for a stout review! This is from the current range at Lidl. It was actually released in the batch from earlier this year but I wasn’t able to get a hold of it at the time. ‘Chokka Blokka’ is a Mocha Stout from Scottish brewers William Brothers and is not only vegan but … Continue reading Beer Review: Chokka Blokka – Williams Bros. Brewing Co.
