No Frills Pale Ale

It’s been a while, dear reprobates. Much has occurred, much else has not. I have a new job, which is very exciting in and of itself but why do you need to know this? Because where I work now stocks cheeky beers. And what hap...

Dead Pony Club

I’ve had a bit of a thing for Simcoe since sampling the Simcoe Summit at CraftyBeerFest a couple of weeks ago – so naturally, I looked towards the Scottish badboys to slap me in the face with the stuff. The ever contro...

Beerdsman Lager

Beerdsman are a very new brewery so I don’t have a huge amount of information about them at the moment. I first came across them when they popped up on Twitter (@BeerdsmanBeer) and according to the business card that accompa...

Honkers Ale

Goose Island have been a weird one for me here on Beer-Reviews.co.uk. I’ve either had a lot of dodgy bottles or just don’t really get it. I’ve consumed their Goose Island 312 and Goose Island IPA and both have le...

Hop House 13

Shopper Gold

This is so late now – we actually enjoyed a pre-realease taster thanks to our friend Nils, who knows the champion brewer at Caveman Brewery. Big thanks to him for this one! If you grew up in Kent or the South East, you’...

Crack of Dawn

My first foray into London’s the Late Knights Brewery, Crack of Dawn offers a “fresh hoppy hello in your gob with a polite bitterness at the end”, which – if I’m honest – makes me think of walki...

Auburn Copper Ale

Begins with a strong head and an even stronger nutty aroma that forewarns the drinker they’re in for a real pint. A bitterness that provides a kick and a manly maltyness provides a strong pint.  Perhaps the most surprising thing i...
