8 Ball he thought that was quite nice but others were better. He has also had Gamma Ray. Bloody ‘ell blood orange beer was too sour for my liking and even Sam admitted it was rather sour. “But he still likes it because he has had another more recently.”
Punk ipa is really nice and you can even get it in wetherspoons now which means its easily available and cheap.
A favourite of his as he is massively into big american hops and loves Holy Hopping Hell. the 2nd batch was so good but the 3rd is not as good. “apparently the 4th is good too”. I think there on 5 now.
Imperial was Sam’s beer last night, a black ipa that tasted nice intially but some how tasted of blue cheese to me afterwards? Sam couldn’t taste what I was talking about so happily finished it off. He tried it again and it still tastes like that to me. This latest one doesn’t though. Buxton Spa nice easy drinking beer, pale golden, straw coloured, hazy, minimal white head,
Wild Boar is cloudy, golden, mango, not too bitter or sour, contains wheat, oats, barley and hops. Small noticeable head that clings to the beer rather than the glass, frothy, medium body, fruity, floral not very herbal or hoppy, spicy had it twice now. Wyoming Sheep Ranch darker orange, cloudy, more planty, double ipa, minty? Hoppy, contains wheat, oats, barley and hops, strong alcohol taste, wouldn’t buy it again. Axe Edge is cloudy, wheat, oats, barley, hops, same head as Wild Boar, more bubbly than others but maybe more shuck up, lacing on glass as a result, good, grapefruit, slightly sour, but very hoppy, not very fruity, quite refreshing, Black Rocks is liquorice so bad as is Imperial tasting of blue cheese. Was advised against buying Moor Top as most people don’t like it, some to the point of returning it. “Still haven’t had it”
These beers have different combinations of hops in them. He really likes Amarillo. Kernal Amarillo one hop very tasty. He also had Centennial which quite nice. It had a muted taste to it so not as punchy as other hops. Citra was the next beer on the list that was drunk. I didn’t want it after my Black Isle Red Kite. ipa mosaic again and was very fruity and tropical as usual which is good. It gets the thumbs up from both of us. It has mosaic hops in it.
|The Kernel India Pale Ale Citra Galaxy Mosaic this was quite a nice beer as I like like mosaic and citra isn’t that bad but I don’t like it on its own.Galaxy I hadn’t tried before but is probably a good hop.Table beer mosaic was nice not to be confused with Table beer that has 3 different hops in US 366etc or Biere de Table which is belgian style.|
Old Dairy brewery
Dark Side of the Moo is an imperial porter that Sam is quite fond of at the moment. This comes from Murrays general store next door as its a local beer from Cranbrook area. He is getting into stouts and porters at the moment.
These are available at wetherspoons so quite cheap. Bengali tiger ipa, Crisp lager and Sweet action pale, wheat and cream. His favourite is Bengali tiger. There ok but not brilliant.
lager at spoons. “Had this recently and it was actually really nice.”
ipa also at spoons
