Mr President – Defiant Double IPA (Brewdog)
Now this will knock your socks off! Here’s your 9.2% beer Mr President..!
Big flavours have been packed into Mr President starting with mouthwatering fruits and bitter hops combined with chewy toffee notes and a hint of pine.
Brewdog say it best…
An all American gung-ho of a beer. This is the Defcon 1 of a beers.
OTT (Old Tongham Tasty)
So rich and smooth. Can taste the velvet chocolatier and malty flavours. Slightly sweet with a hint of plumb.
Carried all the way from the brewery. Worth it!
Amazing Belgian beer! It’s strong, smooth and sweet. Slight chocolate taste.
I’ve visited loads of places in Belgium and this is still my favourite. On my way back I try to fill my rucksack with as many of these as possible!
Belgian craft beer. Very nice with the usual blonde body, big fluffy head and hints of spices. Lovers of Leffe will enjoy this, especially as it’s half the price and available in Aldi! Lower ABV mind, this one’s only 5%!
Very pleasant change to the norm. A very hazy and super fruity hoppy ale. Huckaback is a refreshing beer from Salt Beer Factory. Unfiltered to keep the natural haze, I really enjoyed this.
Fine Line (Jennings)
A very hoppy and fruity pale ale from the Lake District. Jennings brewery have some crackin beers on offer and I’d recommend trying them if you get chance. Nice, easy going beers.
Fine Line is dedicated to the pencil, which was invented after the discovery of graphite in the Lake District in the 1500s.
An unusual Belgian style beer that’s apparently brewed in collaboration with Melissa Cole. I’ve read a few of her books and they’re really good, they’re like 3 stories in 1 all with the same people. What a creative mind!
Sayzon is a hazy wheat beer rather than a thick, murky dark Belgian. It has a citrus flavour and is a pleasant drink.
Star (not the lager!) is brewed in the Portobello Brewery, London. It’s a very smooth amber ale. I really enjoyed this one!
Hints of roasted malt and coffee, floral berry and fruity late hop
The Wild Beer Co brew some creative beers! I’ve had some great ones from them now. They seem to think more about the beer accompanying food rather than just drinking it on its own. I don’t know about you, but I quite enjoy a liquid lunch now and again!
Murmur is a mixture between beer and wine. It’s fermented with 1 beer and 2 wine yeasts. It has elements of dry, sweet, bitter and acidity. A complex, weird one!
If you are a true lover of hops then you must check out this brewery. The Wild Beer Co go that extra mile (or thousand) to bring wild yeast strains into their brews.
This beer is 100% fermented with brettanomyces – a naturally occurring wild yeast. At 3 months it tastes the same as a fresh pale ale but at 6 months it evolves into something far superior.
This is a powerful and complex IPA. It smells great and is quite a light but cloudy colour. It makes a great impression! 👍
My second beer from New Zealand!
They call this a session IPA but its far too punchy for that. This is good stuff if you like your citrus to inflate your tongue to double size. 👅
A satisfying golden ale from Gloucester Brewery. This one has a hint of tropical fruits to it which makes it more refreshing for warm days.
Quite light alcohol content too so it makes a great afternoon or dinner drink.
