Beer #2690 is a double ipa brewed by Drake’s Brewing Co in California, America. A disappointingly boozy-tasting double IPA at 8% ABV. The mouthfeel is reasonably thick and it’s quite bitter, with pineapple and a malt sweetness but a pervasive…

Beer #2656 is a pumpkin ale brewed by Bacchus Brewing in Queensland, Australia. A spiced porter that improves as it warms up. Sweet and creamy but roasty and warming, the ginger is obvious but doesn’t dominate thankfully, the pumpkin contributes…
