Bear Beer


€2 for a can of this Danish lager. It tastes very average but has a certain more depth than most lagers. It’s less gassy and a little heavier than a carlsberg. It’s not bad to be fair. Was expecting it to be a bit more harsh on the pallet.

4.7% in a 500ml can


Thwaites Very Nutty Black


I’ve had a few of these recently. Found it on draught in a pub in Soho last week which was a nice surprise.

Obviously it’s very black, stouty looking beer. But I can’t taste any nuts in it. Which is a good thing as I don’t like nuts!

It tastes a bit caramely and smooth. A little bit sticky without the stillness. It’s a lovely pint. 3.9% in a 500ml bottle. A cracking beer.


Morland Old Speckled Hen


This is the less premium of the Morland’s beers. Old Speckled Hen is a classic beer, and rightly so. It’s got a lovely dark, ruby colour and a cracking head.

Can’t quite pin the taste down. But it is quite sweet and I get some appley tastes (old English apples)

It’s s proper good pint. 500ml is 5.2% so it’s quite strong.


Badger Blandford Flyer


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.

Old Tom Strong Ale


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.

Badger Golden Glory


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.
