acidity

Thanks and I fully accept your knowledge on this.  You have been in this game and brewing sour beers much longer than I have.  Yet I noticed that the Bentspoke Flanders Red Ale kept its head reasonably well.  It was not as sour though.  Thoughts?

Hawkers Beer - Red Shift - India Red Ale

Caramel, floral and malty aroma

Strong bitterness.  Bold maly flavours.

This is a sipping beer.

Although I like my Modus Operandi Former Tenant clone, when tasting the above beer, I can see where I went wrong: Not enough bitterness in my Former Tenant.

Hey Shamus, at first glance to me that does not look appealing but as you are the Sipping Aficionado Supremo I would trust your analysis, in other words is it any bloody good ?

I'll put it this way:  I liked the can, but I would not buy a slab.

Mountain Goat Beer - Hogs Head Imperial Stout with Smoked Cherries

Aroma:  Black Forest Cake.  Rum notes. Cherries.

Flavours:  Malt, rum, smoky smoothness, alcohol warming, mouth numbing.

I would buy a slab of this.  But it would cost a bomb.  Plus it would take me a year to get through.

Big Shed Strata IPA. Lacks punch and mouthfeel for a 6.5% IPA. Maybe more traditional. It's nice but missing a dimension.

Actually it's growing on me. I've almost forgotten what a traditional IPA taste like.

My son got it for me for Father's Day from Harvest Cellars in Belgrave South.  They are about 10 minute walk from home.  They always have a great variety of different beers.

Just trying 4pines watermelon and pomegranate sour and their hazy pale. the sour will be a perfect summer drink. the hazy would probably have been better if it was carbonated (both beers came straight out of the tanks so hadn't been carbonated yet)
