Brains by SA Smooth

Chris B. is drinking a SA Smooth by Brains at The Charles Dickens Tavern

It's not offensive, but save hints of maltiness and a sour edge, then the overwhelming taste is sadly.....water.

Samuel Smith's Old Brewery by Organic Pale Ale

Chris B. is drinking an Organic Pale Ale by Samuel Smith's Old Brewery at The Charles Dickens Tavern

A cracker. Slight sweetness and smooth taste with a complexity of flavours where nothing overpowers. Balanced - makes me homesick!

Fuller, Smith & Turner  by 1845

Chris B. is drinking a 1845 by Fuller, Smith & Turner at The Charles Dickens Tavern

Sweet but not overly so. The fruitcake description pretty much spot on - stands out above all else. Needs to warm a bit from fridge. Nice.

Samuel Smith's Old Brewery by Taddy Porter

Chris B. is drinking a Taddy Porter by Samuel Smith's Old Brewery at The Charles Dickens Tavern

Like this. Malty, tiny hint of chocolate, smooth and not too heavy that you can't have alongside a hearty meal.

Carlsberg UK by Tetley's Smooth Flow

Chris B. is drinking a Tetley's Smooth Flow by Carlsberg UK at Sherlock Holmes

Quite enjoyable. Very smooth and low alcohol means way of enjoying a malty bitter taste only available in stronger local brews.

ENDEAVOUR Vintage Beer Co. by 2016 Growers Golden Ale

Chris B. is drinking a 2016 Growers Golden Ale by ENDEAVOUR Vintage Beer Co.

This is a little gem. Great balance of malt and hops and has the taste of a much stronger IPA. Will buy this again.

Matilda Bay Brewing Company by Wild Yak

Chris B. is drinking a Wild Yak by Matilda Bay Brewing Company at West Beach Bathers Pavilion

Too generous last time. This is pretty average and I may even detect a touch of a vinegar taste in there. Colour ok on draught.

West Beach by Westies Premium Draught

Chris B. is drinking a Westies Premium Draught by West Beach at West Beach Bathers Pavilion

OK but needs a crisper finish. Just feels to be lacking in a bit of zing - which fortunately the venue provides itself.

Åbro Bryggeri by Rekorderlig Premium Strawberry-Lime Cider

Chris B. is drinking a Rekorderlig Premium Strawberry-Lime Cider by Åbro Bryggeri at Grill'd

A bit like cordial. Very sweet. Need to be in the mood!

Malt Shovel Brewery by James Squire Hop Thief 8

Chris B. is drinking a James Squire Hop Thief 8 by Malt Shovel Brewery

I like this. Hops are there aplenty (as you'd hope!), but there is a sweetness that provides nice balance. Light enough to have a couple.

Balter Brewing Company by Pilsner

Chris B. is drinking a Pilsner by Balter Brewing Company

A drinkable pilsner, but doesn't have that super crisp taste of a really good one. There are better Balters in the stable.

Little Creatures Brewing by Furphy

Chris B. is drinking a Furphy by Little Creatures Brewing at Lord Of The Isles

The time has arrived when this ultimate go to beer needs a little bump up in its score. Sessionable & great taste is a combo to cherish.

White Rabbit by Bock Bock

Chris B. is drinking a Bock Bock by White Rabbit at White Rabbit Beer Hall

So smooth, beautiful smokiness. Had to run away as I would have drunk this all night and missed the footy.

Stone & Wood by Jasper Ale

Chris B. is drinking a Jasper Ale by Stone & Wood

Very nice. Beautiful fullsome taste. The beer equivalent of a shiney conker, but without the heaviness to prevent having another....two.

Cascade Brewery Co. (Australia) by Cascade Premium Light

Chris B. is drinking a Cascade Premium Light by Cascade Brewery Co. (Australia) at South Yarra

Does the job for a light. Drinkable when needed. Goes well with a flavoursome curry that by definition will destroy tastier beers!
