Balter Brewing Company by Pilsner

Finally, I've had one of each of balters core range! To be honest, definitely weakest of the whole lot. Clean, malty taste combined with hop aftertaste that detracts from the experience. Not for me sadlty

Gage Roads Brewing Co  by Single Fin Summer Ale

James G. is drinking a Single Fin Summer Ale by Gage Roads Brewing Co

Gluh. For me, one of the beers that will come back to me as being a disappointing brew. Only reason to drink this is if you need a light ale, and nothing else really. Hop taste doesn't gel well with me, and doesn't have much else for me. AC20

Prancing Pony Brewery by The Zeppelin

James G. is drinking The Zeppelin by Prancing Pony Brewery at Club Rivers - Malt Barrel

Absolutely love the idea of an neipa that is completely hop driven, rather than having excess fruit added. Considering that I am slightly allergic to orange, having this clean beer is really quite a treat! Smooth and tropical!

Wayward Brewing by Raspberry Berliner Weisse

James G. is drinking a Raspberry Berliner Weisse by Wayward Brewing

Berry flavour mixed with traditional sourness. In terms of sour beers, up there with the pineapple hope. Not too bombastic which is a plus.

Purchased at Cellarbrations at Lugarno


Hargreaves Hill by ESB

James G. is drinking an ESB by Hargreaves Hill

Cracking good bitter! Tastes like a classical beer, with lovely chocolate malt taste that finishes with a fairly strong bitter aftertaste. Not a complex beer, but a strong bitter ale! AC19

Left Handed Giant Brewing by Flash Flood

James G. is drinking a Flash Flood by Left Handed Giant Brewing at Bucket Boys

Really nice IPA, rich with perfect amount of citrus, hops, malt coming together to form a cracking good drop.

Batch Brewing Company by Campos Milk Stout

James G. is drinking a Campos Milk Stout by Batch Brewing Company at Uncle Hops at The Bank Hotel

Might be biased because I love Campos, but damn this one is a good sweet stout. Tastes like premium coffee, that's for sure!

Hope Brewery by Pineapple Sour

James G. is drinking a Pineapple Sour by Hope Brewery at The Noble Hops

One of the nicer sweet sours I've had! Sweet, sour and everything nice!

KAIJU! Beer by KAIJU! Hopped Out Red

James G. is drinking a KAIJU! Hopped Out Red by KAIJU! Beer

Very nice, however that hop flavour is something that I kinda don't prefer compared to other red ales. Maybe it might be your thing, buts it's not entirely mine!

John Boston by The Surprize Summer Ale

James G. is drinking The Surprize Summer Ale by John Boston

Ah. Now see, the problem is that this one is lighter than the James squires, with a larger unpleasant taste afterwards. In terms of taste, would give this one a miss I think.

Malt Shovel Brewery by James Squire The Chancer

James G. is drinking a James Squire The Chancer by Malt Shovel Brewery

Smooth malty flavour, with a smidge of aftertaste that will make it from scoring higher. Nothing special, but not poison


Balter Brewing Company by Captain Sensible

James G. is drinking a Captain Sensible by Balter Brewing Company

In terms of low strength beer, this is quite possibly my favourite still, as it has a strong citrus with a touch of malt.


Modus Operandi Brewing Co. by Modus Pale Ale

James G. is drinking a Modus Pale Ale by Modus Operandi Brewing Co.

Late beer from yesterday. Pretty solid pale ale that is an easy drinker.
