#114 LoverBeer Dama Bruna – One of the most memorable beers to pass my lips

Review #114  – LoverBeer Dama Bruna 96/100 I’ve had a few beers that have been from other breweries that have collaborated with the Italian brewery, LoverBeer – they’ve all been pretty forgettable.  The Dama Bruna was the first beer that I had that was actually produced solely by LoverBeer.  This barrel aged, brown ale is… Continue reading #114 LoverBeer Dama Bruna – One of the most memorable beers to pass my lips

#109 Hop Nation Brewing Co – Acid Head

Review #109 Hop Nation Brewing Co – Acid Head 82/100 I’ve not managed to delve too deeply into Australia’s craft beer scene, but this seems to be the first beer that I’ve had since arriving where I’ve thought, “that’s a proper sour beer”. Out of the bottle and into the glass the beer pours a… Continue reading #109 Hop Nation Brewing Co – Acid Head

#98 Wild Beer Co, Somerset Wild – A Beer Fed from the Tit of the Mother Apple Tree

Review #98 – Wild Brew Co Somerset Wild 76/100 Now, I’ve seen this beer described as a Berliner Weisse,  I disagree with that description and I have a little bit of a gripe about how beer styles are being slapped on beers that quite frankly do not meet the requirements of the style – I am… Continue reading #98 Wild Beer Co, Somerset Wild – A Beer Fed from the Tit of the Mother Apple Tree

#91 Buxton Bourbon Skyline – A Really Good Beer But I’m Not Sure I’d Call it a Berliner Weisse

Review #91 – Buxton Brewery Bourbon Skyline 84/100 I’ve previously talked about the history of the Berliner Weisse in another post, but just touching on that, Berliner Weisse was once the most popular beer consumed in Germany with production dwindling at the start of the 20th century.  If you look up this style of beer,… Continue reading #91 Buxton Bourbon Skyline – A Really Good Beer But I’m Not Sure I’d Call it a Berliner Weisse

#89 Victory Kirsch Gose – The German Beer With a Sense of Humour

Review #89 – Victory Kirsch Gose 86/100 I recently watched a video with the brewer at Victory, he was explaining about how he travelled to Germany on a bit of a beer pilgrimage and when he discussed Gose beers with the Germans they perceived it as a bit of a wacky beer, there were jokes… Continue reading #89 Victory Kirsch Gose – The German Beer With a Sense of Humour

#87 Siren Calypso – A Tropical Island Compressed Into a Bottle With a Generous Amount of Tang!

Review #87 – Siren Calypso 87/100 The Siren Calypso is a good example of how good beer doesn’t have to be expensive.  I picked this one up on my last beer run, it was one of the cheapest bottles at around £2.70 and one of the ones I enjoyed the most.  Each batch of the… Continue reading #87 Siren Calypso – A Tropical Island Compressed Into a Bottle With a Generous Amount of Tang!
