JW Lees and Co by Dirty Dozen

Paul Q. is drinking a Dirty Dozen by JW Lees and Co at The Sheldon Arms

What a great pint. The depth of the fruit and bitterness carries the Lees je ne sais quoi to produce a very moreish beer.

JW Lees and Co by 2 Tribes

Paul Q. is drinking a 2 Tribes by JW Lees and Co at The Puckersley Inn

Just catching up on a few old ones. This was lovely: an almost acidic aftertaste to a coffee explosion, with a mild consistency.

Paul Q. is drinking a 1027 by Wickwar Wessex Brewing Co

Not sure about mild, but it is a Stones-esque proper bitter, and a damn good one too. I'm liking this brewery.

After-party blues. Well done Portugal. This is bloody huge: way better than Pit & Pendulum, this a warming wonder that should never end.

Dry & Bitter Brewing Company by Dank & Juicy

Paul Q. is drinking a Dank & Juicy by Dry & Bitter Brewing Company at Shaw

The name says it all: typically to-the-point Dutch. Their sister act was pretty good. Still with the Swedes or the Portuguese for me though.

König Ludwig Schlossbrauerei Kaltenberg by Kaltenberg Ritterbock

Can't believe it's 9%: it goes down so nicely. Not so smoky, yet rich & slightly sweet. Much better than the German song...

Another one from yesterday lunch. It's a nice, steady dark mild with enough body to give it a porter feel.
