The other day my Dad said he saw a Lemon Cheesecake Sour IPA in Morrisons and asked if I wanted it. I instantly said yes because the only brewery it could have been from was Siren. Now, the reason I was so excited for it was because it was the first sour beer I ever tried. Peter, a sales manager who works for Siren, came … Continue reading Beer Review: Castillian Lemon & Honey Cheesecake – Siren Craft Brew
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.
Today’s review is another beer that I picked up in Tesco recently. I’ve had a couple of Brew By Numbers beers before but have never done a review on the South East London based brewery’s wares. 05 is the name for their IPA’s and this one has been hopped with the classic, Citra, as well as Amarillo. It’s a rather boozy beer for the supermarket, … Continue reading Beer Review: 05 || IPA – Amarillo and Citra – Brew By Numbers
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
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
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
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.
