    It's OK, I've just cracked a Black Isle Hibernator Oatmeal stout to atone....

    I agree. Last time I had one in reminded me of carbonated rotting brussel sprouts. Gross.

    How is it? I tried it before and it wasn't great, but I might have had a bad bottle.

    jazzyjeff13 Poo-Bah (2,987) Nov 6, 2010 United Kingdom (England)

    Yeah, I noticed your review didn't praise it too highly. I thought it was pretty good, though not amazing. Could be more intensely flavoured given the strength. That said, I've kept this bottle for the best part of a year.....

    Verdict: give it another chance :slight_smile:

    Hawkshead Brodie's Prime and Cumbrian five hops were swiftly dispatched earlier today at a 'spoons as I was waiting for a train. Both thoroughly recommended.

    Harbour Pale No. 5 Citra (cask) possibly the best beer in town yesterday.

    Yakima Red from Meantime. Very watery, thin. Some nice clear hop notes, but they aren't backed up by any complexity. It's crying out for some fruit I think.

    jazzyjeff13 Poo-Bah (2,987) Nov 6, 2010 United Kingdom (England)

    Was in town earlier and had a swift half of Phin & Matt's Extraordinary ale (Southern Tier). Rather nice, even at £3.

    Currently on Acorn's Barnsley Gold. Tasty....

    Hawkshead Red on cask. Was ok.

    In town again earlier. Had a half of Moor's Raw (superb) and a half of Proper Job (not bad).

    Now on a bottle of Bank's Fine Fettle.

    Cherry Tango, oh yeah. Doing essay writing so I need my wits about me. I'm onto dissertation level word count though, so I really feel like I need a proper drink...

    Mix it with Guinness.....

    Just opened a Left Hand Black Jack Porter.

    Cracking open a bottle of Slater's Top Totty whilst snacking on a Gregg's Sausage Roll
    will probably mean me being banned from the Strangers bar :stuck_out_tongue:

    EmperorBevis Poo-Bah (3,308) Sep 25, 2011 United Kingdom (England)

    Keltek's Golden Lance, crisp easy drinking with a deft bitter kick
    and all for 99p :grimacing:

    Krusovice Imperial
    noticed a review on here that compared it less favourably with budvar
    but this stuff is better
     
  33. EmperorBevis

    EmperorBevis Poo-Bah (3,308) Sep 25, 2011 United Kingdom (England)

    He should have used Danish Bacon instead of yeast:confused:
     
  34. CwrwAmByth

    CwrwAmByth Poo-Bah (1,721) Jan 24, 2011 United Kingdom (England)

    But its the original lager yeast. Apparently it was the first one to be singled out in a lab. Or something like that.
     
  35. EmperorBevis

    EmperorBevis Poo-Bah (3,308) Sep 25, 2011 United Kingdom (England)

    They mentioned it on Q.I. recently, they took it around the world
    and is the true source of the Carlsberg fortune but they refuse to sell it to the Germans.

    Yeah it's definitely one of the better recent ones. Citra and Simcoe continues to be a winning combination.
