    Five Point Red Rye (trial brew apparently)

    Well if this is the trial they should stick with it. Tastes like it has tons of rye in it, it's lovely and hoppy too.

    More rye lined up next too. Well Moor rye technically, it's RYPA, a collaborative effort from both Moor and Beavertown. Should be interesting at only 4%.

    Cracked open the can of EB Pils
    what little taste there is is good but at 5.2% it's a big drink of nuthin'

    Lindemans Cassis is horrible. I was going to say Ribeerna, but I don't think this deserves to qualify as beer. Think Ribena with extra sugar and a shot of vodka.

    Have been scorched that much today that
    1) I've had to have a cold shower because of feeling like I have heatstroke
    and
    2) I have given my beer a chill in the fridge

    probably not the most suited beer ever for the hottest day in 30 years
    but this Odell Cutthroat Porter is pleasant enough

    Samuel Smith's Organic Chocolate showed up again in my town. So much flavour in a 5% abv brew. I know you fellas don't fancy SS much but I dig this more than the highly rated, and deservedly so, Rogue Chocolate.

    Don't do it! They look good and smell good (weirdly) but that's it!

    From my experience at least.

    Well I decided against them and got my first beer of the bight
    and my current Salopian vertigo

    The only worthy brews from them are their Hazelnut Nectar, Chocolate Stout, and Shakespeare Oatmeal. Brutal Bitter is also a goodie. The rest, are mediocre and/or over priced.

    Just for the record, those were the exact 3 (the first ones you mentioned at least) that I'm talking about.

    Maybe they sent us a horrible batch or they deteriorate heavily being transported, but very lacking in taste even though they smelt weirdly amazing. Chocolate stout in particular had such a strong smell of freshly baked brownies.

    What's the matter? You didn't check the dates on the bottles?? /me being sarcastic.
     
  24. CwrwAmByth

    CwrwAmByth Jan 24, 2011 United Kingdom (England)

    Probably not. When I got them I had been drinking beer for less than a year. Looked up the one I reviewed and it was Hazelnut Brown with the smell. The beer was over carbonated and thin, but strongly sweet when the fizziness calmed down. I guess I could see why Americans would have thought it was a great beer, especially given their love for crap like Youngs Double Chocolate.

    Oh you're American.

    Awkward.

    Just had the Harvest Ale yesterday. It drank well, but the aroma was skunk. Could have been a much better beer if they hadn't stuck in in a clear bottle. There is no reason a beer made with the 3 Cs shouldn't be really good.

    Been drinking almost exclusively home brew, except for the odd occasions the mates and I get together to break out the American beers.

    St. Austell Proper Job, nice! Much better than the cask version. I have to get more of these for "mowing the lawn" days.

    Harvest Pale is a cracking pint of its type when on song which fortunately is normally the case round here. It had a shaky time when they uprated the brewery but seems better than ever now.As it's local and found in about half our pubs I tend to take it a bit for granted. Never had the bottled version though.
    One bottled beer I bought last night was "Shipstones" , a reincarnation of the old and much loved beer I cut my drinking teeth on.I went directly to the brewery for it and bought half a dozen , it's going to sell out very quickly given the publicity.
