Beer #1920 is an abbey ale brewed by Purrumbete in Camperdown, N.S.W., Australia. A refreshing supposed Belgian style ale that doesn’t taste like one. It’s very drinkable though, very citrusy and orangey with a minimal bitterness. The bottle size is…

Beer #1911 is a scotch ale brewed by Purrumbete in Camperdown, N.S.W., Australia. A fairly enjoyable and refreshing Scottish-style ale that just misses the mark for me. It’s all rather samey throughout with a rock-steady malt presence and some bitterness.…

Beer #1906 is an ale brewed by Purrumbete in Camperdown, N.S.W., Australia. A interesting attempt at something different that doesn’t quite gel for me. Brewed with rye and red wheat and a load of fresh cherries, it’s slightly tarty with…

Beer #1821 is a pale ale brewed by Purrumbete in Camperdown, N.S.W., Australia. A refreshingly hoppy pale ale, citrusy and fairly malty with a slight twang as it goes down the hatch. Bitterness is fair. The bottle size is 500ML…

Beer #1766 is a black indian pale ale brewed by Purrumbete in Camperdown, N.S.W., Australia. A beautifully smooth and roasty black IPA, smokey with mild chocolate, a hint of coffee, and some dark fruit. It’s also pleasantly bitter and it…

Beer #1765 is a pale ale brewed by Purrumbete in Camperdown, N.S.W., Australia. Even though this is a low 2.6% ABV it remarkably still has enough taste to make it a refreshing pale ale. It’s got a decent amount of…

Beer #1760 is a belgian ale brewed by Purrumbete in Camperdown, N.S.W., Australia. With hindsight (which is so useful sometimes) I wouldn’t choose choose this beer as a mini-milestone beer (every tenth). While I didn’t mind it and drank it…

Beer #1753 is a scotch ale brewed by Purrumbete in Camperdown, N.S.W., Australia. This one sounded so nice on the label, ‘…an oatmeal milk stout…an assertive bitterness…rich malty characters…big creamy texture’. I reckon I barely drank 1/5th of the bottle.…

Beer #1653 is a saison brewed by Purrumbete in Camperdown, N.S.W., Australia. An enjoyable farmhouse ale, this hides the 7.3% ABV very well with an upfront and center pear taste. Pineapple and grapefruit are in the background. It’s moderately yeasty…
