8/10 Light and refreshing with a big citrus punch in the face! This is one of them beers that I liked so much I was reading up on th ingredients. Then it clicked that I’ve done this before with “citra hops”. Magical ingredient! 5.2%

8/10 Got this on the off chance at M&S. So glad!! This is everything I want in an IPA: citrus smell, refreshing taste, big hop smash with a bitter kick. 👍 Brewed by Arbor Ales. Will definitely be buying this again.  6%

Unfiltered lager

6/10 Don’t be put off with the look. This may look like a can from the Tesco Value range but it’s actually a decent little beer!  Brewed in Germany – and they know their lagers! This is an unfiltered lager which means that’s retained much of the flavour and body that the brewer intended. This… Read more »

Go to IPA

8/10 Such a great IPA! It’s very hoppy but has a fruity smoothness to it. Goes down very well.  Stone use “hop bursting” which adds an “irrational amount of hops during the final stages of brewing bring out maximum flavours and aromas. The result is a session IPA that delivers all the fruity, piney character… Read more »

One inch punch

8/10 Very enjoyable golden ale from America.  It’s a bit different to the usual golden/Amber ales and I was surprised to get a big fruity flavour. This is more of a pale ale or an IPA.  I would buy this again!  3.9%
