I went to an open day at Wantsum Brewery, and tasted about 10 of their beers (and blagged some hops on the tour). I bought a key keg of Montgomery and am sampling it now. A pale ale 4% abv and a nice peachy foretaste with a dry bitter finish. Very nice, it was supposed to be for Xmas, but may have to buy another.

Two days on the wagon, so having 3 tonight. Unfortunately, the first two haven't been very good - Wells Sticky Toffee Pudding and Marston's Baa Humbug. Got them for my birthday in a variety box; I don't usually like beers with 'additions' and these are no different. Good news, is the rest of the box has some belters in it so happy days!!!!

Tonight I've had a Piraat Hopped Tripel (ok), a Petrus Dubbel (didn't like it, roasty flavour which seems wrong) and now a St Bernadus 12 (absolutely lovely).

Better stop now, I'm in severe danger of getting trolleyed!

Bugger all again. Had a bit over the weekend in york and felt a bit rough after. Decided ho have a few days off it but then got a bad back which feels more like another sacrolitis flare up which is really tedious! A root in the cupboard found some wacky pills from the last time so can't drink now anyway...

A half of a half of my homebrew; still not ready, try it again in 2 weeks.

Bottle of Shipyard Steam beer. Interesting. Quite nice. Now a bottle of Wainwright Golden Beer. Ok. Nothing too special.

Had these two last night. The Effra was delicious. Sweet malty British amber base with a zing of grapefruit and pine from a load of American hops. Not too in-you-face, in fact really well balanced.

The Hobsons beer was a strange one. Hobsons made a barley wash for nearby Chase Distillery to distill into whisky. That young whisky is then blended back with Hobsons Postmans Knock (a ruby porter). At first the beer seemed a bit thin and watery. Plenty of whisky notes, but not really any depth of flavour or complexity. Was expecting more of a punch. Would have liked more dark fruits from the malts perhaps to come through to add balance and depth. It got nicer as it went down though. Perhaps as it warmed or perhaps it was the mince pie I was scoffing at the time. interesting beer, but alas not quite delivering on it's promise.
