I probably shouldn’t mention how much I’m not into porters, but this is one that I probably won’t be sampling again.
Its rather bitter, and very lively
Very dark, burnt dark chocolate and almost like a burnt sausage. I’m not a massive fan of burnt meats…
I should think this would be okay if you’re sitting around infront of a fire with some nice cheeses, but not for me…. Sorry
Another flavourly sample here.
Decent, nice and light session beer. Pretty carbonated. Quite hoppy and makes a decent all rounder.
Slight fruits in – grapefrut and citrus…
Not sure what else to say, its fairly average. Decent beer if you find on good offer.
Bit crappy to be honest. Light, fruity, too hight on the PH for me to enjoy it
I thought it’d be good due to the idea of it being brewed by an alchemist but I was let down by both the idea and the taste.
Bot for me. No No No
Pretty refreshing. This was an inclusion from Flavourly beer club. Doubt if I would have purchased otherwise. Label is slightly off-putting with regards to looking a bit washed out.
Anyway, not a great deal to write home about. Simple citrus and hops, slight grapefruitness and orange.
Again, a bit too lemony for my top 20.
I’ve always been fairly fond of the badger beers. They’ve always both suprised me, and also expanded my opinion of beers.
I don’t recall ever reviewing this, but I should do so, even though I reckon I’ve been through all the badger range!
Quite fruity, even “normal” for the norm of badgers. A slight hoppiness, and “grassy” flavours with a decent head on it. Hung around for a while.
Quite deep malts in it which brings the biscuitness of it all. Would class as slightly better than a session beer,
Always a classic (as my mate Andy is always telling me) – but got to admit, its a good beer.
Quite malty, which I like, and not too hoppy. Although I am fond of hops, but it seems a bit of a (not session) but normal “i fancy a pint, pint”
Its nothing massive, but its in Aldi for £1.25 a bottle, and at that price, its an absolute steal.
Back to one of my favourites… I think this was the first wheat based beer I had and thus, opened my eyes to the wonders of wheat beer. It knocked my for about 16 when I first had it. Who knows it if was because I was into lager at the time, or if its genuinely that good. But I tried again, and again, and its a bloody great beer.
I will try again in about 2 years nd ensure its not my inexperience in ale, but I’m assuming I will really enjoy it again.
Lovely sweety finish with some sweetness in there, and possible caramel, with the huge straw based back end.
Love it I do.
This was a flavourly inclusion. But I liked that deer head can. So I went for it
I got some sweetness with the sourness of some citrus, possibly orange – either way bloody good.
Lively head, that calms down quickly.
Didn;t get a huge amount of hops in there
An inclusion from flavourly.
Malty beer, nice carbonated head – nothing special about it all though I am afraid – not even a session ale…
Not entirely worth it
Not impressed at all. Far too citrussy for my taste – quite sour IMO
Gonna take a bit of a wide stance on this
