Cloudwater Brew Co. by Pompettes

Billy A. is drinking a Pompettes by Cloudwater Brew Co. at The Old Truman Brewery

Sweet and funky with some unexpected booziness. Cloudwater fruitiness makes me want to know what yeast they used. Loads of fruit salad chews as well as fresh fruit. This is rather good.

Malty helles – eminently quaffable, although with a touch of sweetcorn.

Goose Island Beer Co. by Madame Rose

Billy A. is drinking a Madame Rose by Goose Island Beer Co. at The Old Truman Brewery

End of the keg, but still appropriately tart and complex. Cherry and wine tannins braced against balsamic richness and acidic bite. Rides that line well.

Mad Squirrel Brewing Company by Ascension

Billy A. is drinking an Ascension by Mad Squirrel Brewing Company at The Old Truman Brewery

Maybe the softest saison I've ever drunk: pillowy texture with gentle clove and banana notes leading into an appropriately softly carbed palate with a touch of bitter hop. Fruity custard finish. Good work.

Double-Barrelled Brewery by Bear Swamp Road

Billy A. is drinking a Bear Swamp Road by Double-Barrelled Brewery at The Old Truman Brewery

Balanced impy, with a slab of chocolate and a touch of berry fruit to stop it getting cloying. Still pleasantly boozy.

Draft

Bulletproof Brewing by Semi-Jacketed Schwarz

Billy A. is drinking a Semi-Jacketed Schwarz by Bulletproof Brewing at The Old Truman Brewery

Great bit but if schwartzbier, although not quite carbed enough for me – too easy drinking. Chocolate and vanilla core balanced by sour malt.

Winslow Brew Co. by Sahib

Billy A. is drinking a Sahib by Winslow Brew Co. at The Old Truman Brewery

Excellent balance of blanche and hops, coming down firmly on the Belgian side of things. Cloves and banana almost burying candied lemons and a handful of leafiness.

Double-Barrelled Brewery by Red Jungle Fowl

Billy A. is drinking a Red Jungle Fowl by Double-Barrelled Brewery at The Old Truman Brewery

Solid fruity gose – raspberry up front, gooseberry at the back and classic gose herbiness through the middle. One to look out for come summer.

Firebird Brewing Co by Parody Session IPA

Billy A. is drinking a Parody Session IPA by Firebird Brewing Co at The Old Truman Brewery

On keg it's still peachy with a touch more twig, in a good way.

Cloudwater Brew Co. by DIPA Ekuanot Mosaic

Billy A. is drinking a DIPA Ekuanot Mosaic by Cloudwater Brew Co. at The Old Truman Brewery

Too green for me – I've been away from Cloudwater's DIPA's for too long and have learned to love subtlety. That said, it is still fruity and delightful.

Lines Brew Co. by Hop Flux One

Billy A. is drinking a Hop Flux One by Lines Brew Co. at The Old Truman Brewery

Soft and chewy NEIPA – no haze required.
