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.

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.

FogHorn Brewhouse  by Dubbel Raisin Extra Stout

Simon M. is drinking a Dubbel Raisin Extra Stout by FogHorn Brewhouse at FogHorn Brewhouse

Definite smoke, not much raisin. To little body for dubble and this beer needs it. Interesting but I wouldn't go back.

FogHorn Brewhouse  by Extra, Extra Special Bitter

Simon M. is drinking an Extra, Extra Special Bitter by FogHorn Brewhouse at FogHorn Brewhouse

As described - ESB with US (AU's) hops. Nice beer from the handpump although as a pom I'd prefer EKG or fuggles. Interesting difference tho'

The Hop Factory by Hoppy Ale

Simon M. is drinking a Hoppy Ale by The Hop Factory at The Hop Factory

Very little flavour - mild bitterness which is a little harsh to my palate.

The Lord Nelson Brewery Hotel by Old Admiral

Simon M. is drinking an Old Admiral by The Lord Nelson Brewery Hotel at Fire Station Hotel

Toasty caramel malts. Deep brown, tan head. Fairly sweet with mild hop bitterness at the end. Very nice beer.
