First up, we have a perfect beer for the 40 degree days we've been having lately, Anchor Steam Summer Beer
|Plus the free Pint glass I got with the 6pack!|
Nothing too exciting, but a beer you could definitely drink a 6pack of out in the sun on a hot day
Next up, we have Brasserie de Saint Sylvestre - 3 Monts Biere de Flandre.
|Most intense part of this beer was getting it open...|
Body is medium to light, acidic with some citrus notes. Towards the end, and a definite element of sourness
Interesting but not amazing, but definitely worth the $10 price of entry
Next, we go back to America for a beer from Rogue. But this is no ordinary beer... It's possibly one of the biggest beers I've ever had. Rogue's New Crustacean Barleywineish Imperial IPA Sorta
|Kinda goodish sorta tasty like|
Pours a hazy orange colour with a little bit of off-white head. On closer examination the aroma has clear notes of peach and pine. One the palate, a syrupy, fruity body leads to a strongly bitter final hit, letting you know all about the beer's 88 IBU.
Highly recommended for anyone who likes Barleywine or big hoppy IPAs
Finally, the latest release Single Batch from the boys over in Manly at 4Pines, an Imperial India Brown Ale
|Closest thing I've had to a jaffa in a bottle|
Poured a clear, reddy brown with light brown head. Low carbonation, and what little there is is very small bubble. Aroma of chocolatey malt against tropical hops with a nutty element.
Silky on the palate, with a chocolate malt bittersweetness, and a real orangey hop flavour combining to create a "jaffa" flavour of sorts. Tapers off into a more resinous flavour as it fades
Highly recommended as a more accessible dark beer, light and fruity yet dark and stormy.
Thanks for reading guys! I'll try to update more often, but work's heading into peak so we'll see...
