This is a very nice beer but oh my, ginger! Tastes like ginger ale and I suppose it is. I really should read the labels better (after the peach beer on Friday).
The ginger gives it a little kick on the end of the tongue. Almost spicy.
A really nice beer, and I don’t usually like ginger ale. Nice, would definitely drink this again.
Golden in colour. Has a rather ordinary palette and taste. Nothing massive jumping out at me. A nice sweetness to the end of it though. Mellow and enjoyable. Simple.
Small bottle. 8.5% though. Small but I’m guessing it packs a punch. Very dark, stout like colour, with liquorice overtones.
This is a beer to warm you through. After getting in from a wet and windy night, put your feet up by the fire and sup one of these. That’s just the ticket. Like a duvet for your insides.
Very liquoricey taste, almost burnt. It’s very morish indeed. I like it a lot
A bit like you would expect pontefract beer to taste! Very very nice. Will definitely have this one again.
A very nice, smooth ale. Had a slight burnt taste to it, somewhat toffee like.
4.9% and would have again.
Jeepers, this has a crazy smell of peaches. The strongest fruity smell I think I’ve had of a beer. (Mind you, I should have noticed the label might have mentioned Peaches!)
I’m not the bigger fan of peaches, and it might be a little too much for multiple beers, but I can’t taste anything else.
After half, I think I shan’t buy this again. My wife seems to like it, but she’s a peach lover.
One of my first choices of pint. It’s got a nice mellow smokey flavour and never fails to deliver.
Quick pint with me mate Andy…
A classic in my eyes. Evenly rounded and a little hoppy but quite fruity.
Very easy on the pallet, and just a great all round easy to drink ale. With a fire on the go, reminds me of Christmas…
Picked this up in a bargain 4 for £5 offer, when the bottle alone was £2.80.
Claimed to be a vintage brew, has very vintage look to it, and a mean, crudish taste. Mind you, it is supposed to a premium version of Old Speckled Hen, and is 6.5%
I enjoyed it, but I doubt I would pay full price for it, it wasn’t “that” special.
A lovely light ale. Its a little hoppy, and not as golden as I would expect. But quite light and intricate taste. Beginning to think Badger might be amongst my top favourite range of beers…

A lovely beer. Thought it might be a bit sickly after the first one, but think I could’ve drunk several.
Its nice and light and has a cracking taste, but very banana’ish (if you couldn’t guess already!)
