Brauerei Gebr. Maisel by Maisel & Friends Choco Porter

James R. is drinking a Maisel & Friends Choco Porter by Brauerei Gebr. Maisel

Picked this up in a Hamburg supermarket. Nice enough - soft cocoa notes but lacking in depth and "cojones"

Humble Sea by Socks & Sandals

James R. is drinking a Socks & Sandals by Humble Sea at Siren Craft Brew

Swinging by a "meet the brewer" event. My solo driver's beer is a hazy, juicy delight with just the right amount of bittering hops


BrewDog by Punk IPA

James R. is drinking a Punk IPA by BrewDog

For comparative purposes! Noticeably softer and more rounded. Still pleased with my effort though, so upping my rating - even Mrs R is drinking it. Well done me πŸ‘

Brooklyn Brew Shop by Punk IPA

James R. is drinking a Punk IPA by Brooklyn Brew Shop

My first home brewing effort, and I'm reasonably pleased. Murky and more raw than the proper stuff, but the spiky hops bite is there.

Arbor Ales by Mosaic

Great - really enjoyable citrus fruity-hoppy ale, glad I ignored the CAMRA server trying to put me off!


Sherfield Village Brewery by Galactic Pot-Healer IPA

Earthy, dry - odd but not unpleasant
