not sure if i'll have one from beerwulf tonight - he was only 80 meters away........ and now....

View attachment 41787
He's 15 miles away

I can see the funny side , damn strange route he's taking....
I hear they're only allowed to take left turns. It means they have to stop less, and in doing so they save time....

Anyway... Next up Go Big or Go West from Neon Raptor

Im on Gun Brewery Vermont Pale its clean and refreshing, though more of a Summer beer.

Thought I would give this the benefit of the doubt as I havent been impressed with the past offerings , collaboration between walled city brewery and rough brothers wish I hadnt bothered. Looks like pond water and tastes as bad. Never again lesson learned.
I tried this & thought it was grand. Clearly I don't know enough about Amber Ale :laugh8:
Can you recommend any good Ambers that are available locally? I need to investigate further.

On my last dozen of bottles of European pilsener ( kit cold fermented with lager yeast and Saaz dry hop )
which I brewed in November.
Probably the longest I've managed to condition anything yet ! ( and all the better for it )

@matt76 dark czech lager, absolutely awful pic, sorry.

Aroma, malty perhaps some spicy hop.

Appearance, very dark, almost black, pretty clear, white head which lingers for perhaps half the glass.

Flavour, first impressions are really roasty. As you get used to that it becomes more complex maltiness. Perhaps a bit of coffee, but also a little bit of a burnt taste to it? Hops come through as it warms.

Medium bodied, sweet bit not cloying. Reading the bjcp guidelines perhaps over carbonated, but for me its perfect again.

For me it's a lovely beer, I'm not overly used to the style but it seems to match the bjcp guidelines. There is perhaps a burnt taste to it which I'm not overly keen on, dunno if you picked this up? I'm nit picking though, overall this is a lovely beer again and I'd demolish another like a shot.

Thanks for sharing!

beer just arrived from the Netherlands - yay
Since heiniken have taken them over I don't think you can make up your own selection but I had this case.....

Plus no courier surcharge or customs malarkey. Just useful to know the price you see IS the price you pay as we know thats not always been the case.
(pun intended wink... )

Got a free Beer 52 just had to pay delivery, so having a Galway Bay Red Ale, it was gone pretty quick

Picked up lots of malt and hops earlier so this evening might become a brewday
