Brewery: Deschutes Brewery in Oregon, USA Style: Hazy Pale Ale ABV: 4% IBUs: 40 Rate Beer: 63/100 Pour: pale white to straw in colour. Not much of a head. A low carb, low calorie, hazy pale ale in a tall boy can. 2020 has certainly been a weird year. This beer is interesting. Soft pine and citrus aroma but quite a dry and bittering […]
Rogue Ales – Dreamland
Brewery: Rogue Brewery in Oregon Style: American Lager ABV: 4.2% IBUs: 14 Rate Beer: 47/100 Pour: Light straw colour with a big white head that settles in. True to style with bready, malty notes and a thin flavour. Inspired by a dream and proceeds to resurrect a local skate park, this tall boy is perfect for […]
Brooklyn Brewery – Bel Air Sour
Brewery: Brooklyn Brewery in Brooklyn, New York Style: Sour ABV: 4.5% Rate Beer: 44/100 Pour: Rich yellow colour with a thin white head. Soft, refreshing and tart flavour. Slight tropical notes and quite quaffable. You know I’ve never really used that word before. Never liked it but here we are in isolation and trying to do […]
Bell’s – Two Hearted Ale
I often think back to what first drew me to IPAs. Sierra Nevada Torpedo IPA and Ballast Point Big Eye. Both malty, hoppy goodness. Stone Brewing and Brew Dog bringing hops to the forefront.
Sierra Nevada – Fantastic Haze
Sierra Nevada’s imperial version of Hazy Little Thing. A bold hoppy IPA that is less hazy but more IIPA.
Ska Brewing – Moral Panic
Melon and grape flavours backed by a drying finish. Despite that it’s a soft, easy drinking beer.
Sierra Nevada – Porter
It’s been a long time since I’ve seen or had this porter from Sierra Nevada. Like many of the early beer experimentation days, they all seemed to stem from Sierra Nevada.
Sierra Nevada – 30th Anniversary
Brewery: Sierra Nevada in Chico, California USA Style: Grand Cru ABV: 9.2% Rate Beer: 99/100 Pour: ***lost review from 2016***500th blog post*** Toffee brown with no head. I had been saving this beer for a special occasion. I always envisioned it would be a happy one, but unfortunately this beer is to celebrate the short life […]
