Beer #3299 is a white indian pale ale brewed by Phillips Brewing in Canada. A solid white IPA clocking in with a 6.5% ABV. Sweet, creamy, very hoppy. Lots of lactose I’d imagine. A touch yeasty. Citrusy. Good. The bottle…

Criminally Bad Elf

Beer #3292 is a barley-wine style ale brewed by Ridgeway in Oxfordshire, England. A dangerously drinkable barley wine style ale, sweet toffee, low bitterness, fruity. The 10.5% just isn’t an issue (until after you’ve drank the whole damn thing). The…

Beer #3288 is a strong ale brewed by Ridgeway in Oxfordshire, England. An English double ale, as it says in the label. A solid double, quite bitter with sweet toffee malt, some fruity hops. The 9% ABV is extremely well…

Beer #3287 is a smoked ale brewed by Bacchus Brewing in Queensland, Australia. The perfect beer to drink during the German basement tavern scene in Inglourious Basterds, and to continue drinking through the remainder of the movie. It’s a thick…

Beer #3283 is a bitter brewed by Ridgeway in Oxfordshire, England. An improvement on the other two I’ve had, not that they were bad, they were good. This is better, coming across like an English bitter though it doesn’t hide…

Bad Elf

Beer #3281 is a spiced ale brewed by Ridgeway in Oxfordshire, England. Despite a fairly watery mouthfeel at first, much like the Black Elf, the flavours linger and build just like that one. There’s a smooth bitterness running through it,…

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,…

Black Elf

Beer #3278 is a black pale ale brewed by Ridgeway in Oxfordshire, England. This one is rather odd but it grew on me the further down the glass i went. It’s a tad watery but the flavours build … Burnt…

Beer #3273 is an ipa brewed by Siren Craft Brew in Finchampstead, Berkshire, England. A rich fruity milkshake IPA, quite thick tasting and smooth, rather sweet, I’m getting orange and raspberry amongst other indiscernible fruits (they apparently used passion fruit,…
