Beer #2264 is a brown ale brewed by Balter Brewing in Currumbin, Queensland, Australia. A sweet nutty brown ale, thick tasting with caramel and chocolate malt. Bitterness was decent without ever bringing too much attention to itself. Quite tasty. The…

Beer #2256 is a pale ale brewed by Modus Operandi Brewing in Mona Vale, N.S.W., Australia. Malty and hoppy with a refreshing citrusy backbone, this is a solid pale ale. The bitterness is low but accumulates over the duratIon of…

Beer #2213 is a berliner weisse brewed by Victory Brewing in America. This isn’t my favourite style, I couldn’t get down all of this as it was giving me indigestion though I can see why others will like it. It’s…

Beer #2091 is a black indian pale ale brewed by Brewdog in Ellon, Aberdeenshire, Scotland. This is quite a roasty black IPA, tasting of chocolate, orange, and grapefruit and with a decent level of bitterness. Very good. The bottle size…

Beer #1995 is a pale ale brewed by Tuatara in Paraparaumu, New Zealand. A fairly impressive and very refreshing pale ale, sweetly malty with lots of grapefruit upfront but a low level of bitterness that luckily doesn’t actually detract from…

Beer #1971 is a pale ale brewed by Mikkeller in Denmark. A pale pale ale, maybe because it followed the 4-Pines saison about half hour after I’d finished it, or maybe not. Little bitterness to speak of and low-level maltiness…

Salty Sea Stout

Beer #1965 is a stout brewed by Two Metre Tall Company in Tasmania. Made with oysters, mussels, seaweed and sea water, this is a failed attempt at something out of the ordinary. It’s meant to be a stout but tastes…

Double Stout

Beer #1907 is a stout brewed by Shepherd Neame in Kent, England. This is another attempt at something slightly different. It’s sort of a pale ale crossed with a stout. There’s the smooth bitter roastiness of a stout, with chocolate…

Solstice

Beer #1896 is a saison brewed by Tuatara in Paraparaumu, New Zealand. I like Tuatara and I like saisons but I think this is the only Tuatara I’ve not enjoyed. Maybe it’s because of the preceding Moon Dog beers. I…
