is this made primarily for export?
I usually see it in Sainsburys
Have you tried it?
Really really fruity hops
Yeah but it was on the tour of the the brewery so it was only a small sample and it was i think 2 or 3 years ago now. Super fresh though.

Not a big fan of Spindrift - I reckon it's weak sauce....
Currently enjoying a JHB
Couple of pints of Oldershaw's Great Expectations, nice easy drinking -though I'm not a fan of so-called Golden Ales this one was nicely balanced and refreshing. On to the Riggwelter from Black Sheep until it ran out.
Quick re-review of Eagle IPA - this time the bottle is in date
Still a mediocre beer though.

there were probably a few more in there as well. And a great time was had at Brugge Beer Festival.
Fuller's Bengal Lancer and now Titanic Stout. This stout is superb!
It was quite pleasant but I couldn't help getting the impression that the brewer was told to make a beer that wine drinkers would like.
Fyne Highlander in top form in the pub tonight, I scored it 4.5 which I do very rarely.
I've not drunk any fyne ales in ages, I need to remedy that. They are a pretty good brewery imo
I shall be trying a homebrewed coopers stout tonight. Hope it's good, I haven't had time to do proper all grain brewing for a while so knocked this canned kit up as it only takes an hour to make as opposed to five for all grain
Imagine if coca cola was beer. Yeah my dad made that.
I like cola thankfully
Yeah it's pretty good. That's just the closest thing it tastes like, really quite weird.
Trying it now, I see what you mean. It's pretty decent for a one can kit.
Wait no, I didn't mean the kit. My original post was a stand alone thing. Not sure what he made it from though!
it's cola-y though. As well as some ash sort of flavour
Bottle of Timothy Taylor's Havercake Ale
didn't plan on having it or any beer but it was knocked over and started to hiss.
Managed eleven different beers yesterday being a beer judge (I remembered to take my wig and red robes but left my black cap at home)....we had a strange mix of beers to judge from a very hop forward PA through Stouts and Porters and even a wheat beer! Strangely enough the panel only took minutes to agree on which two went forward to the next round ( Blue Monkey Ape Ale and Grafton Brewery Silhouette) of which the Ape Ale went on to win overall.
Difficult to judge the different styles but by no means impossible though what mark to allot to a wheat beer in the Appearance column took some thinking about! But we were all so impressed with the wheat beer (Silhouette) that we placed it second.
Then tried the new Castle Rock Harvest Pale Premier Cru which is a 5.1% ABV version of the eponymous ale.Quite nice. http://www.castlerockbrewery.co.uk/site/?page_id=892#HPPC
Haha, weird coincidence that.
Also, a new low for a camra spokesman type person. Somebody asked for recommendations for a good bitter, to which he replied
"depending on strength i think Americas Double IPA is a bitter (its about 7% and you can get i from tesco)"
I know it's really snobby of me but it really made me face-palm.
I do believe a beer first (thirst surely) for me
a beer from New Zealand
Monteith's Original Ale.
bit of a cat magnet
Have I lost taste buds or is this "subtle" in flavour?
It's not snobby, you weren't asking someone you struck up a conversation due to a band T-shirt
it was a Camra bod maybe if you told him Brewdog made it his head would have melted lol
Got a Westvleteren box with a 12 and two glasses. I know the shop took the piss with the price and I'm not telling you lot what I paid but I couldn't turn down the opportunity
I have had two very flavourless beers tonight
& to make up for it going to open Anchor's Brekle's.
A beer I have been looking forward to for a while.
Should have traded for it! Done 3 proper trades with people here, and on 2 of those occasions I got Westvleteren
Long story short, Zimbo and Ruds are awesome fellas.
Swapsies Wesy 12 with Zimb's too
Smuttynose Shoals Pale Ale and Cheesy Puffs - a well balanced and nutritious snack!
I haven't lost my trading virginity yet
This made me laugh. As if you needed an excuse
Clearly your name is lying to us
OK, I've had a whoregarden and am now supping on a raspberry Bacchus. Not bad - shame they saw fit to add sugar/sweetner otherwise this could probably rival Liefmans for deliciousness.....
The red box? I know all about that one.
I would have traded you some Westy, maybe even a glass too, hell if I knew you were gonna buy that I would have given you a Westy gratis.
Rudgate's Battle Axe and now Short's Bellaire Brown.....
I hope you're always that generous
Had a pint of Greene King IPA the other day. It was ... better than expected. I didn’t want another though.
Monty Python's Holy GrAil
Is it worth a quest for a shrubbery?
I have returned. With a bomber of Oakham Green Devil IPA no less. At least for starters.
Only if chopped down with this herring!
