Was gutted tonight, my keg of Harvest Pale Ale kicked. I’ve been really enjoying that. One to add to the list to brew again. Fortunately, I have a free brew fridge so have been using it as a normal fridge keeping two kegs nicely chilled and ready to go for an occasion such as this.

So, I placed on tap my American Amber Ale, which has actually turned out more like an American Red Ale, so I’ve just renamed it. First impressions are very good. It was dry hopped with 110g of CML Punk’d hop pellets and is very nice indeed. Not so gutted the Harvest kick now 🍻

I don't know why we have 700 ml long necks over here, I have a 700 ml glass now we have 650 ml long necks. Why we cant just go to a standard 500 ml I don't know. Anyway 700 ml of best bitter.

Hi @Benfleet Brewery, being a relative newbie here, please excuse my ignorance but what does "kicked" mean when applied to a beer?
I presume it is not good, but what is it please?
Thanks,
Robin.
Ah, that’s not a beer phrase. I don’t know where I dragged it up from to be honest. Perhaps an abbreviation of “kicked the bucket” (died). Basically when pouring a pint the keg ran out of beer. Sorry for the confusion.

Ah, I get it.
As in 'all gone', now that is bad.
Good thing you had the Amber/Red ale available.
Thanks for the reply.
Regards,
Robin.
