    The cans look so attractive, the contents probably not always so. Dunno if I'm tempted... guess I'm old fashioned and like choosing bottled beer with boring labels. o_O

    Vocation is pretty much my favourite brewery in terms of a go-to, solid, reliable, always consitently excellent beers. I've enjoyed pretty much all of Magic Rock's stuff too so will have to check that one out for sure.

    I have gone right off any 'craft' beer that is available in supermarkets. IMO the likes of Beavertown, Wild Beer and Thornbridge beers have taken a noticeable nosedive in quality and taste since appearing on their shelves. Once these beers start being mass produced, they just aren't the same. The one that convinced me was a can of Lupiloid (Beavertown). An IPA which is over 7% and the word 'bland' springs instantly to mind if you asked me to describe it. And I know this hasn't always been the case as I have drank many pints of it over the last few years.

    The Vanilla stout is pretty good.
    Not sure it's really an imperial at 7.5% but it's a decent beer
