Eden Brewery by Papa Passionfruit

James D. is drinking a Papa Passionfruit by Eden Brewery

Not a bad pale/IPA. Slight boozy bitterness with slight tart passionfruit hit. It's good but not great.

I don't do Sours etc but this is good complex stuff. Woody, musty aroma with a tart almost cherry flavour.

A little uninspiring and flat but quite thick full mouthfeel. A little fruity but meh.

Brouwerij Lindemans by Faro

Very different to my usual. Deep woody appley flavour with almost marzipan sweetness. Champagney fizz. Not for me but appreciated.

Disappointingly flat. Smooth, with light sugary toffee-like flavour but not a lot else.

Tempest Brewing Co. by Soma

Solid IPA, clear as a bell. Lightly carbonated. Subtly zesty, light malt, ever so light pineapple stickiness. Good stuff.

100% sitting down beer indeed. Sweet and cloying (in a good way!), deep, rich and satisfying.

Boom! This is delicious! Slightly syrupy, sticky mouthfeel with an almost pineapple sweetness backed up by the blatant tasty coconut. 👌🏻

Yep, good characterful bottled beer. Bet this is great on cask. Smooth, subtle almost oaty maltiness. Some medium sweetness, soft citrus.

Stand out beer for me last night. Great with a 3Bros burger! Punchy malty character backed up by fresh piney Hop, and spicy finish. Smoooth!

Really enjoyed this last night. Some spice, deep sweet malt and distinctive but gentle clove Belgian character.

I'm not a lagery fan but this is a welcome change to juice bombs etc. Nice malty notes, backed up by a good clean finish, some herbal.
