312

We were very exited to get our hands on some Goose Island beers, imported from Chicago this 312 is described as an ‘Urban’ Ale and boasts its unfiltered wheatness. If I’m completely honest, I don’t really k...

Double Stout

Ohhhh, why it has taken us this long to do a proper Stout review I could not tell you. The satisfaction of pouring that smooth nectar into a glass, the rich blackness and light beige head, the thick malty smell. It’s one of ...

Old Thumper

Brewed in 1979, winning CAMRA’s Champion Beer of Britain in 1988, this beer certainly deserves its name. A firm favourite among many and Ringwood’s earliest brew I’m on the hunt to see if this Old Thumber is more...

Victory Ale

FYI Vegan beer brewed by Batemans. A pale copper ale at 6%. Is the war won? After winning a game of Yahtzee with three yahtzees in a row (and I kid you not), I am feeling pretty victorious, so I figure it’s time for an appropriate...

Rok IPA

Quick Overview Pours a dehydrated amber colour with a proud, but quickly receding, head. Quite a malty smell for an IPA – it smells as though it will be more bitter. First sip is quite heavy and woody. A very slight roll of ...

London Pale Ale

Quick Overview A classic Pale Ale. Light citrus notes, grassy on the swallow with a lovely bitter aftertaste. It’s refreshing and well balanced. Amber in colour with steady lacing and persistent head. Not as deep as other EP...

Organic IPA

Quick Overview Another bevvy from the boys and girls in Suffolk. A strong, playful flavour with a light lacing and a biscuity, citrusy musk. Slightly creamy on the tongue and very satisfying in the belly. An IPA in Bungay When we ...

Mad Goose

Quick Overview The perfect partner for a hot summer day is this award winning pale ale. A crisp and smooth blonde ale with a refreshingly hoppy scent and a strong citrus finish. A confident blend between bitter and sweet, it prove...
