Beer #2142 is a bitter brewed by Mornington Peninsula Brewery in Mornington, Victoria, Australia. A fairly chewy and malty English pale ale, sweet with toffee, some bitterness, and a little nuttiness. I even got some tea in there. Not exactly…

Beer #2085 is a bitter brewed by Purrumbete in Camperdown, N.S.W., Australia. I wouldn’t recommend having this for breakfast when it’s 6.5% but it’s an interesting and, in my opinion, successful beer brewed with two different types of tea. It…

Brunswick Bitter

Beer #2039 is a bitter brewed by Thunder Road in Brunswick, Victoria, Australia. A sweetly malty but minorly bitter, if at all, bitter. There’s some noticeable caramel and a little fruit with a slight nuttiness to it. The bottle size…

Beer #1958 is a bitter brewed by Epic Brewing in Auckland, New Zealand. This extra special bitter is a refreshing and tasty ale, with lots of caramel and malt with a cumulative low level of bitterness that lingers and pleases.…

Beer #1879 is a bitter brewed by Siren Craft Brew in Finchampstead, Berkshire, England. Hmm I didn’t particularly like this one much. I was under the impression it was an English style bitter albeit one that was different to the…

Beer #1689 is a bitter brewed by Brewboys in Croydon Park, S.A., Australia. This one took a while for me to warm too but in the end it’s an enjoyable and decently malty ale that is only 3.5% so one…

Beer #1688 is a bitter brewed by Townshend Brewing in Nelson, New Zealand. A decent enough ale, tasting of malt and toffee, kinda sweet, not particularly bitter and certainly nothing special in any way and definitely not extra special. It’s…

Leaping Legend

Beer #1604 is a bitter brewed by Badger in Dorset, England. An uninteresting and rather bland ale with hardly any bitterness and a weird malty taste. Legend? Not a chance! The bottle size is 500ML with an alcohol content of…

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…

Evensong

Beer #1489 is a bitter brewed by Durham Brewery in Durham, England. A very rich sweet ruby red ale full of dark fruit and malty goodness. I think this one would work better (for me) in a 330ml bottle as…
