    We are rather a small community, I suppose!

    I've been drinking rather a lot of (jings!) wine, which I didn't really want to be ridiculed for.

    Also, the beer was giving me a rather large belly. So, have shed 17kg by essentially not drinking it. My plan now is to just have less food. Beer is better anyway :)

    I approve of this plan.

    I'm currently drinking Gorkha lager, a Nepalese beer that I picked up in Bruges of all places....

    Ended up starting with a very nice glass of beaujolais before a couple of Weihenstephans. Not touching the Schneider Hopfenweisse tonight, as at 8.2% it's a bit too much if I'm going to be fit for the gym tomorrow. Possibly having a Franziskaner to top the night off, we shall see.

    We are one big dysfunctional family.
    I claim the role of mad uncle Bevis whom keeps getting out of the attic
    where he is mean't to be locked away from polite company

    The Gorkha was rather shit. Oh well.

    I've had a Harviestoun Bitter & Twisted to get the taste out of my mouth. Now I've cracked a Buxton American Rye - tasty!

    I think Harviestoun must be top of my list for the "Good but not terribly exciting" brewery category

    For me that would be Fullers, well their regular line-up anyway.

    There's a few who are available over the whole of the uk and do that

    I like most of Fullers brews :nod:

    CwrwAmByth Poo-Bah (1,702) Jan 24, 2011 United Kingdom (England)

    I also like how they not only produce very good real ale, but they also are one of apparently few real ale breweries who stay away from doing golden ale after golden ale, rebadging them as they go. Nope, with Fullers it's a boring yet quaffable beer as the mainstay, as well as an IPA, a porter, a stout, a barleywine,etc,

    The American Rye was superb - hopheads take note!

    Finishing up the evening with a Lion Stout.....

    I'll think of this as I quaff a Tiny Rebel Chocaholic in the next hour or two. ;)

    jazzyjeff13 Poo-Bah (2,718) Nov 6, 2010 United Kingdom (England)

    Oh dear - I've got a bottle or two and I haven't tried it yet. Was hoping it would be good :(

    So far I've had a Boston lager and Oakham's Citra - loverly.....

    Now sipping on a Kernel London Brick collab.
     
  19. CwrwAmByth

    CwrwAmByth Poo-Bah (1,702) Jan 24, 2011 United Kingdom (England)

    The reviews seemed to be a bit more favourable... Maybe i'm influenced by having recently had 2 superb chocolate and coffee beers - Tiny Rebel Chocoholic (Chocolate) and Cromarty Brewed Awakening (Coffee)

    Finished the evening with a Korbinian and a Southern Conspiracy - omnomnomable.

    are you returning to the beer brethren?

    jazzyjeff13 Poo-Bah (2,718) Nov 6, 2010 United Kingdom (England)

    The Kernel brew was decent, though a tad funky....

    Now on Moor's Empire Strikes Back. Big bottle!

    It was very tasty - a solid brew. Featuring new UK hop variety 'Jester'. Quite pricy but worth trying if you like your hops....

    I'm rounding off the eveing with a can of Oskar Blues' G'Knight.......mmmmm hops :)
     
  26. CwrwAmByth

    CwrwAmByth Poo-Bah (1,702) Jan 24, 2011 United Kingdom (England)

    Yeah I was wondering what the exciting new hop would be like. Stand up to the yank ones does it, cascade etc?
     
  27. jazzyjeff13

    jazzyjeff13 Poo-Bah (2,718) Nov 6, 2010 United Kingdom (England)

    Not sure about that; I guess it depends on your tastes. It comes across as a fusion of traditional English varieties (think grassy) with US (citrus), but overall more subtle than most US IPAs. The fruity hop character was more restrained than you'd expect if US varieties were used. However, I thought it was a solid brew - well crafted and balanced. Don't be afraid to give it a whirl.

    The label mentioned that Jester has US heritage - hence the citrus....

    That might be acceptable during the summer, but when it's been snowing? You make me SICK.

    I'm drinking Woodford Reserve Bourbon. Uhhh, I had beer a couple of weeks ago.

    Please don't kick me out.

    To be fair, it's never acceptable....

    Now on a Brakspear Bitter.

    Arbor's Pioneer (single hop) - in a word, fantastic!

    Williams Joker IPA - hmm, decent. Want a tad more hops

    Had that at The Southern, nice but not a world beater.
     
  38. Hanglow

    Hanglow Defender (624) Feb 18, 2012 United Kingdom (Scotland)

    Yeah

    same goes for the Harviestoun Wild Hop IPA which I have just had. Had it before but not for quite a while

    Dark Star Espresso. Coffee beer seems to be the most suitable for essay writing.

    Cairngorm Wildcat.

    Ho-hum. A bit too dull.
