Citra

With a 98% rating on Rate Beer, an army of passionate followers and two gold medals in the International Beer Challenge behind it, there was never any doubt that Oakham’s Citra was going to be one behemoth of a beer. Our loc...

Unicorn

I ain’t no crazy bitch but anything with a Goddamn unicorn on it must be a wonderfully magical thing (even if the label does depict a crazy, old, deranged unicorn). A Robinsons Brew’ry fabrication To pour the head is, and I ...

Bengali Tiger

With JD Wetherspoons now stocking a range of cans and bottles we though it was time to get involved. Sixpoint Brewery‘s The Crisp didn’t last long – so we are stepping up with Bengali Tiger in their 335ml stubby,...

Curious Porter

There is definitely no curiosity involved as soon as the lid is popped off this 330ml 5% Curious Porter. It’s a rich, thick smell of dark chocolate and darker fruits. It’s an autumnal scent that rolls through my nose w...

Caveman Citra

It has been one of England’s finest days so far this year and I’m sat in one of our favourite local(ish) pubs, the Hare and Billet in Blackheath with a tankard of Caveman Citra. Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake It comes with half an inch of...

Delirium Tremens

I have had Delirium Tremens a few times out in public houses and it has nestled its way into my heart. Standing at a wonderful 8.5% this blonde Belgium strong ale also has a superb bottle and design – pink elephants and dancing cr...

Tap Room IPA

Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference serves up Tap Room IPA, advertised as an IPA US Craft Beer and imported from Rochester (don’t worry, not the home of Ama-danger-ous, but New York’s very own) it’s a punchy l...

Liberty Ale

Over here in Britain, there’s a widespread belief that everything in America is big. The servings, the theme parks, dare I say it… The people. The land of hope and glory, the American dream, the New World have not disa...

Hop Mountain

Brewed by Old Dominion Brewery in Dover, America, Hop Mountain is very secretive on first impressions. The bottle and label combination gives almost nothing away – other than the fact it is very hoppy. Hops, in general. The name (...
