Another of the beers from Sainsburys. Quite strong at 7.2% but carries it well, I often find stronger IPAs cloyingly sweet but this one isn’t.

One I’ve been looking forward to so I bought 2 cans, also from Sainsburys. I can’t remember where I first had it (I might have bought it on-line?) but I’ve not seen it much since then. The description of liquid Bounty is not far off. I even have some Tonka beans in the fridge because I planned to make something similar. Nice.

Really disappointed with the head retention on this hefe. The beer is ok I suppose though.

All my beers seem to lose flavour after a few weeks despite being really nice at first. I can’t put my finger on why. Maybe the yeast is carrying the flavour?

Hoppy ales lose some of their aroma fairly quickly because the aroma is volatile and aroma is a significant contributor to flavour.

Some yeasts (including hefe I think) do contribute flavour in themselves but as they drop out you lose that component - why I swirl and swig some of these beers.

You beers should still be flavoursome though.

You need to get into bitters and pale ales, and maybe stouts…hmmm, stout 🤔
