  • Brick Brewery, Watermelon and Lime Sour

    Brick Brewery, Watermelon and Lime Sour

    Having previously enjoyed Brick Brewery’s Rhubarb Sour, which I have since learnt sold out within just two weeks, I was pleased to get hold of their Lime and Watermelon Sour. It pours…

  • Mongozo Banana

    Brouwerij Huyghe, Mongozo Banana

    A delightful oddity: its main aroma, by a long way, is banana. Hardly surprising. But delve deeper and you will find aromas of fake banana sweets, then pear drops and bubblegum. In…

    Siren Craft Brew, Project Barista: Crema

  • Ayinger, Celebrator

    Ayinger Celebrator, some of that Dunkles Bayrisches Starkbier, dawg. This doppelbock rocks, sweet, strong and malty; a clean lager character with a strong dark bite. German beer isn’t necessarily all that cool…
