Sunday Night Beers

Discussion in 'Australia & New Zealand' started by heygeebee, Mar 18, 2012.

  1. Folks,

    Oldie but Goldie title - but enjoyed tonight.

    Bridgr Road / Nogne 0 India Saison to start with to sour things up, followed with a Green Flash Racer 5 which wasn't the hop bomb I thought it might be. Coopers Pale to level the playing field, new pack but seemingly not new taste.
    Then shared a large Chimay Red with the family as a taster before dinner. Classic

    Yer I find Racer 5 rather underwhelming

    Personally I did Victory Festbier (quite good actually)

    Victory HopDevil (not really impressive for an IPA, I preferred their Festbier)

    Green Flash West Coast IPA (yep, everything you want it to be)

    Brooklyn Monster Ale (alcohol/sweet bomb, but not that bad)

    Weyerbacher Old Heathen (probably the best of their range that I've had, but the others were pretty crap)

    Mikkeller Summit Single Hop IPA
    Bridge Roads/ Nogne Indian Saison (both of those at Albion Hotel in Newcastle)
    4 Pines RIS
    Rocks IPA (last two at Harts Pub)
  4. Sunday 18th
    - Couple of pints of Feral White at the local (the only decent beer on tap since
    they replaced LCPA with Miller's)
    - Back home for Saison DuPont
    - Gage Roads Saison (found a lonely bottle at a random bottleshop last week)
    - Finished off my growler of Nogne O #500
