Einstock Olgerd White Ale

 

IMG_1012.JPGDecided to check out the Witney Majestic Wine as I heard they had good beers.

I found this, and I was intrigued. At £10 for 6 bottles I thought it was fairly costly, but better than the £5.50 for 3 I get at my local village shop. Anyway, glad I did. This is a cracking white ale. The label says coriander and  orange peel. Sounds very xmassy, and I don’t usually like coriander. This blows my misconceptions away. Its bloody lovely, and I am so glad I bought 6 bottles. Didn’t last long though, especially at 330ml per bottle.

Had a thin head, and a pale colour. But the spicy, christmassy smells just make you want to gulp it down.

Anchor Steam Beer

 

Went through a phase of american craft beers, and picked this up in Waitrose.

Seemed nice enough, fairly shallow in depth of flavour. But sometimes thats what you want, a “quaffable” easy going beer. Some call it a session beer, I think this fits perfectly.

Slightly sweet fruity aroma with a decent maltiness aftertaste. Would drink again but only has a 2nd choice.
