Jasmine Green Tea

5/10 Yes… beer with green tea! This is a bit different and I enjoyed giving it a go. The green tea is a subtle flavour and not too overpowering. You can tell there is something different about the beer tho, not too dis-similar to the taste of a slice of lemon in your beer. Quite… Read more »

Spitfire Gold

8/10 What a lovely beer! Golden in colour. It has a pleasant malty taste with a soft bitter finish.

Kwak

10/10 This is a classic Belgian beer which has been brewed since 1791.  It’s normally served in a sort of vase that need a wooden stand. If you’re lucky enough to drink this in its official glass you’ll feel like some nutty beer professor. Not that there’s anything wrong with that…! An uncomparable Belgian too… Read more »
