My first thought upon trying each of their beers has been "homebrew".
Yeah, it was quite good, but very messy.
I've found the darker heavier end of the beer spectrum to be Hardknotts forte. Vitesse Noir is fabulous on draught but the metallic tang I detect in the bottle does detract. I love the Aether Blaec too.
I have to say I did eye up the Vitesse Noir but there was 1 bottle of Colonial Mayhem left so I decided to try it while I could
Smuttynose Wheat Wine, love Smuttynose
Yes, I said it.
What kind of arsehole brings a four pack of carling as a present to a party in this day and age? Found it at the back of my drinks cupboard, I'm assuming it came from a party I held a while ago.
I'll still drink it of course, it has alcohol in it
Good God man, mix something with it for pity's sake! I wouldn't pour Carling on the grave of an enemy.
Just 4 cans? Maybe a student, though they would probably bring it and down it themselves.
Drinking a DFH Miles Davis Bitches Brew all to myself. God bless the wife being away for the night!
possibly some post grads, my woman knows quite a few
I wish I was a student again though, it was great, apart form the relative lack of money the freedom was amazing
Yeah that's true. Lectures don't start until the 28th, and all i have is an essay for the 17th and an exam on the 24th.
All i've done since tuesday is wait in for beer deliveries, go to the post office to send beer, go to Discount Supermarket to get beer, drink beer, and watch Dad's Army.
On my 5th beer of the day. Good for the ratings count but not so good for the waistline.
I've got two degrees of utter worthlessness an ordinary degree that took me five years to get from edinburgh and a masters from paisley
Loved being a student
What are your degrees in? I'd like to think mine wasn't worthless but then again archaeology is quite a specific thing.
I did a BA in Business studies - was supposed to be an MA but didnt do any work for it whatsoever so I got a BA ord. I started with geography of all things. I blame general laziness and a love of a certain herb as my downfall
Also did an MA in Financial studies at paisley
That's not to be sniffed at, could've been "media studies" or something like that lol.
By the way everyone, can you help me out? http://beeradvocate.com/community/threads/midas-touch.57098/
this also has alcohol in it
That is true. And probably tastier
They've been drunk now though and I've not gone blind
I wish the beer was the same price as when I was a student. In the buttery it was 1s 2d a pint which is 6p in new money.My hall fees were £6 a week full board though!
I was uni in the mid 90's
From our bar you could get cask Boddies or Theakstons Best for 99p
Cask Old Peculier was a whopping £1.10
The latter put a lot of budget conscious students off, but those of us in the know for a better beer and a bigger alcohol buzz would move onto the OQ after a few warm up pints of Boddies!
To be fair Carling doesn't taste as bad as some macros like Budweiser. Carling was the beer I always thought tasted most like sparkling water.
Least it doesn't smell like actual urine like Fosters.
Was that before it went all creamy and tasteless?
Just about ... it was Whitbread then but it was still on cask and real enough, though I imagine those that remember it in the late 80's in the north west will tell you the mid 90's version was a poorer drink.
It wasn't a favourite beer by any means, but cheap and had some flavour in it!
Our cheap one was carlsberg - 98p per pint in 1998.
Lunchtime at the Marquis of Granby in Granby (where else should it be ?)
Pint of Buntingford Brewery's Donner and Blitzen, lovely dark brew, 4.4% ABV. The brewer is semi-local, before setting up his present brewery he used spare capacity at the Belvoir Brewery down the road.
A pint of Brewster's Hophead, the original and-just-best beer of that name. At a mere 3.6% ABV it's an object lesson in wringing good flavour levels and character from a low gravity beer.
On to a new brew to me;a 6% ABV IPA from Project Venus , one of Sara's (Brewster's) brainchilds http://siba.co.uk/2011/04/women-brewers-launch-project-venus/
Though 6% , it didn't fight its weight in the same way as does Hophead. If I'm drinking higher ABV beer I expect a higher flavour level.
Bateman's Vintage Ale and Hot Box arrived in post today thanks to CwrwAmByth (JK)
Like many I am tempted to age the Bateman's a little, well I hit the big four - zero on the 28th January 2014
so that seems logical
anyone who thinks it should be drunk before then please speak up
CwrwAmByth very kindly gave me a bottle of 2005 Fullers Vintage today. (Drink now or leave longer?) The last couple of days have been spend in Sommerset and Dorset, I picked up some Moor Empire Strikes back, I have had afew mixed experiences of Moor but I am looking forward to this.
Off to Belgium tomorrow so I don't know what my Sunday beerage will entail but it's going to be good whatever.
Buxton's Kinder Downfall followed by something cheeky from Sonnet 43.
Lot's of Black cat both from Moorhouse's and our pet, rebel lol
The Red Willow American Amber ale
Not the godawful film
& worst thing to be associated with Seattle
Found out that my great grandad was a drayman at Mann's, back in the days before the First World War.
I have a bottle of Mann's brown ale 2 feet from me, I shall drink it in honour of your great granda accompanied by a pork pie and piccalilli.
If he was anything like my dad, grandad or me, he'd mightily approve of your choice of snack too. Family of butchers too dontcha know.
I have no patience at all when it comes to pleasure
I am like a big kid
bring on the hot box
Hope you like it!
There is some music that you just don't listen to
they are so awesome you breathe it.
There are some Movies so good that you don't just watch it
you for a couple of hours live within it
there is I have a beer that has a very similar experience
It was mind blowing good
deep, changing, tasty and wonderful
but the best thing
I opened the bottle poured it and drank it and it blew my mind
didn't have to wait six years
didn't have to chant the ingredients backwards or channel the spirit of Michael Jackson
Straight forward beer magic
Cheese on toast and
Struise Brouwers Struise Rosse 2011
a fantastic night of beer
if a bit boozy **hic**
Shame Tiny Rebel only did 850 bottles, and like 2 kegs and a cask of Hot Box
Beer of the century for me
100% super totally cereal
Adventures in Brown Ale land finishes with Nordic
Nøgne Imperial Brown Ale
