Moo Brew by Dark Ale

Simon M. is drinking a Dark Ale by Moo Brew at The Happy Wombat

Dark brown with tan head. Toasty flavour with a light bitterness at the end. Lighter in body than I expected but very pleasant nevertheless

Big Shed Brewing Concern by #63 Thai Green Curry

Simon M. is drinking a #63 Thai Green Curry by Big Shed Brewing Concern at The Pourhouse

Credit for imagination. A strong coriander influence that makes it reminiscent of Belgians. Worth trying - drinkable and certainly unique.

Dusty Miner Craft Brewery by STOOK

Simon M. is drinking a STOOK by Dusty Miner Craft Brewery at The Pourhouse

Common sort of IPA. OK if all you want is the hops - plenty of those.

Rogue Scholar Brewing by Rogue Scholar - Red Ale

Simon M. is drinking a Rogue Scholar - Red Ale by Rogue Scholar Brewing at The Pourhouse

Average red ale. Irish red with decent malt flavour and low hops. Rather low on carbonation for me.

IronBark Hill Brewhouse by India Pale Ale

Simon M. is drinking an India Pale Ale by IronBark Hill Brewhouse at IronBark Hill Brewhouse

Very nice, medium hopped and very well balanced with good body

Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. by Ovila Abbey White Ale

Simon M. is drinking an Ovila Abbey White Ale by Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. at The Grain Store

Cloudy light yellow in colour. Strong coriander influence, orange too (?). Nice & light with a totally typical Belgian yeast flavour.

Badlands Brewery by Darkness London Porter

Simon M. is drinking a Darkness London Porter by Badlands Brewery at Keg and Brew

Standard, nice enough porter on handpump. Solid beer with all the required flavours but low on bitterness and a bit short on punch

Old Wives Ales by New Tricks

Simon M. is drinking a New Tricks by Old Wives Ales at Keg and Brew

ESB? Served much too cold which didn't help. Harsh after taste in the back. Did improve a little as it warmed. 6 Wouldn't have another here.
