Beer #2508 is a saison brewed by Prairie Artisan Ales in Oklahoma, America. Not my favourite saison by a long shot. Tarty lemon, some pepperyness, it just tastes a little bit odd to me. The bottle size is 355ML with…

Beer #2419 is an indian pale ale brewed by Brewdog in Ellon, Aberdeenshire, Scotland. I first had this in 2011, and I probably haven’t had it since. It’s a very good IPA, quite refreshing if a bit weak at 5.6%…

Beer #2090 is an ale brewed by Purrumbete in Camperdown, N.S.W., Australia. This ale pours a murky brown like used toilet water. It might taste like it too as I’ve never tried it (thought I’d clarify that). It’s a tarty…
