Re: Beer

disagree on BBNo, they make some lovely stuff.

Re: Beer

i've only had a few beers by them but i got the impression they do their belgian styles much better than their american pales / IPAs, which i found pretty uninspiring. am i missing out on something in particular i should try?

Re: Beer

their saisons are definitely good. the stronger IPAs that i've had (7%+) have been ace. the session IPAs are run of the mill.

Re: Beer

i also went to the rainbow project at hawskhead brewery up in staveley - the key lime tau was great. managed to pick up a crate of all seven beers but haven't opened it yet.

not that many of them have had a bat.

This was the best of them by far. The lactose made this.

Re: Beer

agree, key lime tau was beautiful.

Re: Beer

I'd struggle to remember, but I have had some total beauties this year. Been very into Saisons and DIPAs.

the Longer White Cloud was another cracker from Tempest. So good.That's about the only one I can remember is definitely recent.

Re: Beer

Long White Cloud is dead nice, would love to try that on draught.
