    Bank Holiday weekend so loud RAWK music and ale is in order
    Staring with Boggarts Ruby Tuesday
    no surprise that it is a red ale, claims to be hoppy and sessionable (it is 3.9%)
    was pleasantly surprised at how it poured with the bottle conditioning

    Peroni Red
    Oh well it at least tastes like beer
    and will just about wash down this hot pork sandwich
    and clear the palate for a decent ale.

    Still can't believe I missed a chance to drink Pliny last night. :(

    Box Steam's Dark & Handsome
    probably the best dark mild I've had out of a bottle
    and it was 99p from B&M's

    Started with William Bros' Prodigal Sun, and am now sampling the Duvel Tripel Hop 2013. It's rather nice....

    That's a pity. Also, have you morphed into an alien?

    Sun King Wee Mac and Sun King Osiris Pale Ale, a couple of cans I picked up at GBBF. Not bad, not earth moving

    Tasting of largely insanely potent UK beers (BD Abstrakts-and others, Bracias, Magic Rock etc etc etc etc) tomorrow night. Will try to provide an update as it progresses but no guarantees that I'll be in a state to push buttons.

    Uh. No beer but 4 Scrumpy Jacks with Tesco Value Wine (both red and white, a carton of each) does not make you feel well in the morning. I think it's basically the same as if i'd drank half a litre of vinegar with my cider.

    Now working in Manchester city centre
    first, though part, wage so everybody piled into Wetherspoon's
    pint of Three B's Knocker Up Porter and
    Peerless' Red Rock
    everyone went on to Yate's so I went home with the goodies from a spec beer shop

    First a can of Wainwright; now RedWillow's Heartless. It's a bit funky :confused:

    Does the King send you free 'loons as a welcome gift?

    Up and ready for action after last night's festivities.
    Top of the tasting was:

    Stone Farking Wheaton w00tstout
    BrewDog/Stone Bashah Reserve-Imperial
    Westy 12 (last minute entry which I saw as a sort of control/ palate re-calibration exercise)
    BrewDog Abstrakt AB: 04
    BrewDog Dog A
    Thornbridge Bracia

    There were about another 20 beers,many BrewDogs (eg.AB:01-03, 05&06), which weren't really up to scratch. But the six above were all very sexy indeed.

    Starting the drinking procedures with Oliver's Light Ale from Coniston.

    If you got 'em drink 'em.

    Opened a Rodenbach but tasted like red wine vinegar
    moved onto Saison Cazeau
    not as elderflower as it was sold to me as.
     
  29. EmperorBevis

    EmperorBevis Sep 25, 2011 United Kingdom (England)

    Tempest breweries Unforgiven, their smoke beer
    smells like a barbecue took place in the bottle.
     
  30. EmperorBevis

    EmperorBevis Sep 25, 2011 United Kingdom (England)

    Belhaven Wee Heavy
    with it being a three fifty five mil bottle pretty sure this was mean't for a distant shore.
     
  31. EmperorBevis

    EmperorBevis Sep 25, 2011 United Kingdom (England)

    Liverpool Organic's Russian Imperial Stout
    eight point one percent so I think that bedtime will be coming soon
    please feel free to join in with the drinking lol

    Can o' Wainwright
    A third of a bottle of Chilean carmenere
    Brass Castle's Vanilla Porter

    The porter is perfectly decent though I'm not getting much vanilla....

    Just had Brains Craft Brewery Bragging Rights. It's got a very ginger/clove heavy scent, but it's rather mild in the mouth. Tiny hint of ginger in the aftertaste, but other than that it's pretty generically "beery"
     
  35. Hanglow

    Hanglow Feb 18, 2012 United Kingdom (Scotland)

    Stopped by whole foods and got a

    Duchesse de Bourgogne, Little creatures pale ale, inveralmond blackfriar and a bottle of hurricane jack.

    LC pale ale was decent, it was lacking a bit of hop aroma and flavour I guess it would be a fair bit better closer to source

    hurrican jack is solid as always


    I'll save the other two for the end of the week, got some curried lamb chops on the go and I think I've got enough spice to destroy any beer so some tennents might accompany it :)

    I now work Saturday Sunday and have Wednesday Thursday off
    So tonight is the start of my weekend
    let's see what this Nuremberg Pils is like
    will it be Tucher's luck?

    A German beer with hops you can taste
    this is a first for me

    Probably a Berliner Kindle Weiss in a sec or two as I watch Paxo. I could do with a quenching experience.
