1845 a gem of bottled beers shame I can’t seem to find it around here now, it used to be a weekend beer for me, really miss it.
Fullers sell packs on the web shop, think in packs of eight!!


When it's not sold out, D'oh!

Carbonation looks spot on. My single is lacking a bit. Have you bottled the full batch in 330 ml bottles
It was a mixture to be honest..what ever I had on hand👍🏼

This is sublime. I had a bit of a wobble after pouring when I noticed Tower Brewery may have done a similar thing that they do with their IPA ( ruin a perfectly good traditional style IPA with too many new world citrus hops) but the Chinook is well balanced by the malt, and this still has a nice Burton ale character. Very nice indeed.

See, I'm not a total old fart!

First try of my British golden ale after 6 days in the keg.
Made with 50/50 citra/First gold and interestingly the first gold seems to be prominent to me.

What do you get from the first gold? I have a tonne of the stuff that cml gave me.

Another Kreik to finish for tonight. This is the lowest cost of all I’ve tried and it tells I’m afraid. I know you don’t always get what you pay for but I think with Kreik you do. If you want a Kreik I would say pick Lindemans.

I had one of these a few weeks back. Fantastic stuff, and in the 4 for £6 offer so it's a double win.

First gold always gives an orange marmalade presence. Usually fairly strong presence in the first few weeks after packaging though it later mellows and combines well. I've used it with challenger a couple of times and that combo really does age well.

I might try it with spicy Saaz sometime.

Thanks. Need to work out how I will use it or give it away.

I love that stuff! One of my all time favourite beers. I remember many years ago they occasionally produced a cask version. I don’t know if that still happens.

Having this Daybreak Coffee Porter whilst I wait for my brother to arrive. It's quite good, a lot like a Guinness West Indies Porter, but a bit too bitter and way over carbed.
