#131 Two Metre Tall Cleansing Ale (Aged) – The best Australian beer I’ve ever tasted!

Review #131 – Two Metre Tall Cleansing Ale (Aged) 96/100 Not only has this been the best Australian beer I have tasted, it’s also the best beer I have had in a long time.  This beer really stood out from the rest of the Australian beers I have tried; in fact I wouldn’t have had… Continue reading #131 Two Metre Tall Cleansing Ale (Aged) – The best Australian beer I’ve ever tasted!

#130 8-Wired Palate Trip Sour IPA – A perfect pour for a quiet Sunday in the local

Review #130 – 8 Wired Palate Trip Sour IPA 85/100 I am going through a phase where sour IPAs are my first choice when they’re available in the local pub or bottle shop, maybe it’s the weather, maybe it’s because it’s a fairly new style that hasn’t been overproduced, but most likely it’s because when… Continue reading #130 8-Wired Palate Trip Sour IPA – A perfect pour for a quiet Sunday in the local

#126 Evil Twin Brewing Nasty Trunks – Doesn’t do what it says on the tin…but a good beer nonetheless

Review #126 – Evil Twin Brewing Nasty Trunks Dry Hopped Sour IPA 80/100 Okay, so I seemed to like this a bit more than a lot of people out there, however I do think that the summary on the can leaves a lot to be desired such as describing this beer as having “more bitterness”… Continue reading #126 Evil Twin Brewing Nasty Trunks – Doesn’t do what it says on the tin…but a good beer nonetheless

#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
