Nieuw Bruin

Beer #1716 is a brown ale brewed by Bridge Road in Beechworth, Victoria, Australia. A pretty strong tasting ale, which is usually a good thing in my opinion, is marred by an excessive sourness that tastes like vinegar. True, there’s…

Petrus Blond

Beer #1655 is a blond beer brewed by Bavik-De-Brabandere in Harelbeke, Belgium. My first from Petrus and it’s not a very good start! I couldn’t drink much of this, at only 6.6% it pretty much tastes like I’m drinking wine.…

First Call

Beer #1539 is a bitter brewed by Badger in Dorset, England. A disappointing and artificial tasting ale, mild sweet caramel and slightly hoppy. First call? Definitely my last! The bottle size is 500ML with an alcohol content of 4.00% (containing…

Hogwash Bend

Beer #1448 is a lager brewed by Claude Vineyard in Waikerie, South Australia. A strange tasting lager with a weird aftertaste. I think it had a maltiness to it but it was hard to distinguish from the abnormal flavour. Hogwash.…

Rodenbach Grand Cru

Beer #1393 is a sour red ale brewed by Brouwerij Rodenbach in Belgium. A very tarty and not very drinkable (to me) fruit beer (I think it’s meant to be). Full of raspberry and cherry, I wasn’t able to finish…

Wheat Beer

Beer #1351 is a wheat ale brewed by Ekhidna Wines Microbrewery in Mclaren Vale, S.A., Australia. Another beer from the local microbrewery, and another unknown with regards to the alcohol content. However, from the moment I cracked open the bottle…

Pilsner

Beer #1341 is a pilsner brewed by Ekhidna Wines Microbrewery in Mclaren Vale, S.A., Australia. Another from a local microbrewery called Ekhidna, but I like this one even less than their IPA. It tastes a bit flat and bland, maybe…

Double Espresso

Beer #1317 is a coffee stout brewed by Black Wolf in Stirling, Scotland. I didn’t like this one much at all. I thought with the first couple of sips it would be a nice coffee stout but the more I…

Hefeweizen

Beer #1257 is a wheat ale brewed by Mission Brewery in San Diego, California, America. A disappointing wheat beer, at only 5.3% it smells and tastes like wine. Unpleasant. The bottle size is 330ML with an alcohol content of 5.30%…

Beer Here Whining Blonde

Beer #1213 is a belgian strong ale brewed by De Proefbrouwerij in K√łge, Denmark. Dedicated to Adriana, a bitch of a customer that makes life hell at work. This is, rather appropriately, an unpleasantly tasting beer which, like the name…
