9/10 Adnams brewery are doing some brilliant IPA’s for M&S at the moment. This is probably the best beer I’ve bought from them. Fantastic! Powerful taste with a whopping mouthful of citrus and orange peel with a bit of spice. It’s smooth like a Belgium beer, just glides over the tongue. Such a small bottle…. Read more »
9/10 Very, very smooth Indian Pale Ale. Now these normally bring a big citrus punch (which I also like) but this is a silky beer. You can still taste the hops but there isn’t as much “tang” as with other IPAs. Inspired by the Bengal Lancer cavalry regiments during the time of the British Empire. … Read more »
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 »
9/10 Fantastic! This beer was brought back from Spain by a friend of mine. It is the beer that the people of Southern Spain are most proud of. And it’s easy to see why… This Grand Reserve version of Cruzcampo is a lot maltier than the standard bottle. It’s a rich, golden brown colour with… Read more »
9/10 A fantastic Getman wheat beer. This is on par with Erdinger (which is more widely available in the UK). Nice and cloudy, as a good wheat beer should be. Not overly sweet like some other wheat beers (hoegarden etc) and what a brilliant name: “scoffer-hofer”! They sell it in M&S. Go fetch! 5%
9/10 Wow! This is a great beer. Strong, smooth and malty. Quite a warm, reddy brown colour. Great stuff! It’s a bottle conditioned beer, which means that it has a bit of yeast in the bottle so that it continues to ferment – just like real ale does in the cask. There are only a few… Read more »
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.
9/10 OMG! What a surprise! I thought I’d give this a try as I like the normal wheat beer by the same brewery. This is actually a full bodied blonde beer but still hazy in look. It tastes amazing! Maybe a bit of vanilla and citrus in there. I need more of this…! 8.5%
9/10 Very nice triple strength blonde beer from Belgium. Lovely! The Chimay brewery are only of less than a dozen that produce trappist beer (which I love!) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chimay_Brewery
7/10 Decent blonde beer from wychwood brewery. Like it!
Innis & Gunn Lager Beer
3/10 Disappointing! I expected better from one of my favourite breweries. Stick to craft ales and I will do the same.
7/10 Decent pint. Especially as it’s named after an Iron Maiden song! Real ale fan and history aficionado Bruce Dickinson, Maiden’s vocalist, played a major role in developing the unique flavour of the beer, entailing ongoing visits to Robinson’s brewery in Stockport.
7/10 A mellow bitter. Amber with a bit of citrus. Bottle conditioned. Really soft on the tongue, great pint!
7/10 “Guinness (/ˈɡɪnɨs/ GIN-is) is a popular Irish dry stout that originated in the brewery of Arthur Guinness (1725–1803) at St. James’s Gate, Dublin. Guinness is one of the most successful beer brands worldwide. It is brewed in almost 60 countries and is available in over 120.” Iconic pint. Not as heavy as you think!… Read more »
5/10 Ok Dubel but I prefer the normal one.
6/10 Decent craft ale
Light bodied beer. Bottle conditioned.
7/10 Decent double without the sediment. Slightly choclotty.
