Simon B. is drinking a Hite by HiteJinro at Stra BBQ

On the plus side this is actually good with Korean BBQ. However as a beer standing on its own it is bland with little to no hop.

Five Barrel Brewing  by New England IPA

Simon B. is drinking a New England IPA by Five Barrel Brewing

This is a really solid NEIPA. Plenty of fruit aroma and very little bitterness.

Monteith's Brewing Co.  by Monteith's Pointer's Pale Ale

Simon B. is drinking a Monteith's Pointer's Pale Ale by Monteith's Brewing Co.

Malty dominated with a slightly metallic aftertaste. Maybe if this was very cold it would be refreshing. There's a lit better out there.

Had a random beer in the fridge and wasn't expecting this classy sour ale. Tart, citrus, lovely.

Moon Dog Craft Brewery by Tess Number Three

Simon B. is drinking a Tess Number Three by Moon Dog Craft Brewery at Quarrymans Hotel

Goodness me. It's almost a relief to get a IPA without the creamy mouthfeel these days. Good solid citrus and pine and high bitterness.

Fierce Beer by Cranachan Killer

Simon B. is drinking a Cranachan Killer by Fierce Beer at Royal Albert Hotel

Massive Rasberry aroma gives way to a more subdued but still Rasberry dominated taste. Easy drinking fruit beer or fruit dominated pale.

Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. by Bad Motor Scooter

Simon B. is drinking a Bad Motor Scooter by Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. at Keg and Brew

Like many in this style lacks the flavour, bite and booze of its full blooded brothers. There's enough to make this an enjoyable beer though

Great colour and sweetness is there with little to no bitterness so great job. Not quite getting a full mouth feel but overall great beer.

Goose Island Beer Co. by Midway IPA

Simon B. is drinking a Midway IPA by Goose Island Beer Co. at Willoughby Hotel

Light in the mouth and the taste borders on sweet. Passion fruit to taste. Easy drinker but needs a stronger flavour, aroma or bitterness.

Hop Federation by XPA

Simon B. is drinking a XPA by Hop Federation

Well it's a decent Pale if you like the more malt driven version of this ale. Easy drinker lacking a strong aroma but def malt forward.
