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 »


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%


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%

  • Erdinger

    9/10 My best white beer! Great taste, amazing beer.

  • London Pride

    London Pride

    5/10 Decent premium ale that’s a standard in most pubs.

  • Black sheep ale

    5/10 Decent bittersweet ale from Yorkshire. Good pint!

  • Marston’s Pale Ale

    3/10 Not too good. But then I’m not a big pale ale fan.

  • Doom Bar

    7/10 One of the UK’s best selling bottled ales. Mainly brewed in Rock, Cornwall, but due to increasing popularity has also been brewed in Burton upon Trent since 2013. It’s a brilliant ale that’s widely available on pumps in southern England. Easy to drink, quite light with no bitterness. One of my fave ales, I… Read more »

  • Carling Zest Orange

    6/10 Lager and orange sounds a bit odd. I was sceptical at first but then remembered that a lot of Belgium beer (which I love) uses orange peel in the brewing process. Plus a box of this “new” Carling was really cheap! So I went for it. It’s quite a low alcohol lager but is… Read more »

  • Weihenstehan

    6/10 Cloudy wheat beer from the oldest brewery in the world (1040! So says the bottle) Malty brew and a bit sweet. Different from the other wheat beers I’ve tried. Thumbs up!

  • Lincolnshire best bitter

    4/10 Decent bitter with a good malty taste

  • Boddingtons

    5/10 The cream of Manchester! Brilliant light bitter that should be a staple in every beer stash.

  • Innis & Gunn Rum Finish

    6/10 Decent craft beer from an awesome brewery
