Beer #3624 is an ale brewed by Insel-Brauerei in Germany. An unusual ale, dry, quite spicy too … A little peppery, nutmeg. There is a light lingering bitterness. The 7.5% is pretty well hidden. The bottle size is 330ML with…

Beer #3618 is an indian pale ale brewed by Insel-Brauerei in Germany. As a non-alcoholic beer, this is quite decent. Malty, bready, a touch fruity, certainly a tad salty. As an IPA though, it’s lacking, to say the least. It…

Beer #3616 is a gose brewed by Insel-Brauerei in Germany. This is my first proper (alcoholic) drink since the 24th of February, exactly 4 weeks today! I cut alcohol out to see if that was the cause of my extreme…

Beer #3613 is a sour ale brewed by Insel-Brauerei in Germany. For a sour this is quite dry and not particularly sour, a touch salty too if I’m not mistaken, with a light fruitiness. Very refreshing. The bottle size is…

Beer #3603 is a sour ale brewed by Insel-Brauerei in Germany. A very refreshing sour ale, it has a creaming soda like carbonation and texture, and a lemon sherbet like fizz to it. It’s only mildly sour, with a little…

Insel Kap

Beer #3303 is an oatmeal stout brewed by Insel-Brauerei in Germany. A solid stout, reasonably thick and creamy, quite fruity for a stout to be honest, more like a black IPA, a little roasty with coffee, a touch of chocolate.…

Baltic Stout

Beer #3289 is a stout brewed by Insel-Brauerei in Germany. A smooth creamy stout with a firm roasty bitterness, coffee, hint of licorice, some chocolate. There’s a sweetness behind the scenes but it’s the roastiness you notice. The 7.5% ABV…

Insel Herb

Beer #3279 is a bitter brewed by Insel-Brauerei in Germany. My first from this German brewery and not the last either as I’ve got two more of theirs in the fridge. Moderate bitterness, mostly dry but a touch of sweetness,…
