Stone IPA

9/10 Love this! Such a great Indian pale ale. Smooth, hoppy and seems to have a flicker of a Belgian wheat beer about it (its not brewed with wheat that’s just how it tastes to me).   It’s brewed in Germany and imported by Brewdog Brewery. What’s a great pair! I’ve had a lot of… Read more »

A over T

9/10 This is only available at the brewery. I carried this bottle for 2 hours on the way home and waited for “a good time” to try it.  That time finally came after bossing an Ikea wardrobe! Aromas Over Tongham is an award winning vintage beer. Bottle conditioned for extra flavour. It has a deep,… Read more »

Trappistes Rochefort 8

10/10 Now ladies and gents… you’re in for a treat….  If you’ve never come across a “trappist” beer before then you need to pay attention. If you love beer then you will love this. There are only 11 monasteries in the world that produce offical trappist beer. The Brasserie de Rochefort, which opened in 1595, is… Read more »

White

9/10 White IPA is brewed by Adnams in Suffolk. Inspired by American and Belgium flavours. Drank in Kent. Wow! This is a really fantastic IPA. It smells great and has a big citrus punch. Yet it’s still quite smooth. Goes down very well. I need to buy more of this… Combines the pine and citrus… Read more »

Pistonhead Full Amber

9/10 Dark. Full bodied amber lager. Well if this is a lager, it’s probably the best lager I’ve ever tasted! It’s clear, dark brown with a bitter/citrus after taste. Full bodied…. Very unusual in a lager! This is fantastic. It’s dry hopped with citra and cascade hope to offer a spicy citrus edge with a… Read more »

Leffe Rituel 9•

10/10 Behold! This is the best type of Leffe I’ve tasted. It’s a full, rich beer. You almost feel like you need to chew it!  I was lucky enough to be given it after a friend did a booze run to France.  I really like Leffe anyway. It’s a slightly tamer Belgium beer than the… Read more »

Rogue Amber Ale

9/10 Amazing amber ale from the other side of the pond. Very soft and smooth  with a slightly sweet aftertaste.  Find it in weatherspoons! 5.3%

Boltmaker

8/10 Full bodied, malty. Really smooth beer. Now one of my favourites. Nice! Timothy Taylor’s Boltmaker was CAMRA champion beer of Britain 2014. Originally brewed in the 1930s as a best bitter to quench the thirst of Yorkshire’s miners.

Tripel Karmeliet

10/10 One of my best beers. This is a great trappist tripel from the Karmeliet abbey. The monks struck gold with this one! Blonde, robust, smooth and fruity 3 grain beer, with final fermentation in the bottle. Brewed with pride, and patience after carmelite tradition with wheat oats and barley. Serve 6-9C 8.4%

  • Coast to coast

    8/10 A well rounded pale ale. Just the right amount of malt and citrus on the tongue. Blummin lovely beer! A bronze ale with fresh citrus and piny hop aroma, light malt with zesty rounded bitterness.  4.6%

  • Wild Beer Fresh

    8/10 A very tasty and zesty pale ale. Really refreshing and fragrant.  The Wild Beer Company like to do things a little different. Rather than sticking with the same ingredients all the time – for a consistent taste. They source different hops from around the world. Depending on the season of the brew will depend… Read more »

  • Mocha

    5/10 There is more chocolate than coffee in this mocha! Very rich and sweet. It actually contains real arabica coffee as well as Belgian chocolate!  It’s great for a treat or if you are a choc-a-holic!  6%

  • Two Roads Expressway

    7/10 I didn’t think I’d like this as much as I did. It’s a coffee stout so I was expecting an espresso kick but this is soooo smooth. There is coffee yes but this is such a dark and rich beer it adds to the flavour rather than tasking over it.  Bloody brilliant! In a… Read more »

  • Bellerose 

    3/10 A “multi award winning beer”.  Could have fooled me! I thought my wife had given me a joke pint (she does that from time to time to keep me on my toes). But no, this was a big let down for me.  It has a Belgium blonde start, hint of citrus, then quite an… Read more »

  • Camden IHL lager

    7/10 I enjoyed this “Indian Hells Lager”!  The Camden Town brewery have done well with this.  It’s as refreshing as lager with the taste of an IPA. Hoppy lager… who would have thought?  We love IPA but we brew lager. Do this is an IPA, resurrected as lager…. in our office this is known as… Read more »

  • Anchor Porter

    7/10 One of the best porters I’ve tried. It has a lightness to it but keeps the big flavour. You don’t feel full after having one as you would some other porters or stouts. There is a sweetness to it.  5.6%

  • Alice Porter

    6/10 Quite a tasty little Porter by brewdog! Enigmatic dark alchemy Goes down well and isn’t too bitter. Hints of chocolate and fruit. Decent Porter! 4.6%

  • RIP Snorter

    5/10 I do like a ruby beer from time to time. Especially with a ruby murry! I visited the Hogs Back brewery recently and had a fantastic time. If you have the chance to do their brewery tour then I recommend it. They are very generous with their beers! This is quite a complex red… Read more »

  • Vital IPA

    6/10 A strong and hoppy Indian pale ale. Brewed with American hops and German malts.  Quite nice but a bit tangy.  6.5%
