The Friday Night 6 Pack Session

Recommended Posts

I got a carton of Milton cranberries. Normally I wouldn't drink megaswill unless it was the only option but in the current weather they're going down pretty good. Plus I didn't feel like spending $80+ on a carton of pale ale. I'll keep one of the empties for the home bar since they're in vintage packaging

Mate, the weather must be pretty bad to drink that; it is almost undrinkable. 

I tried the XXX special beer at the Milton brewery once and it was pretty good. Do they package that up there?

Ah, Fourex. I remember those cans well. I loved this stuff back in the 80s growing up in the UK, when I thought some Aus beer was really good. Either it was actually better then, or I started to realise beer was meant to taste of something.

I reckon they've blanded it over the years but I wasn't around 40-50 or more years ago to have tasted it back then. 

Hairy I haven't seen the XXX one anywhere but the brewery, although the XXXX off the wooden kegs at the brekky creek pub is better than the usual stuff. 

Guv, if I had a pale on tap I'd be drinking it haha. I did have a boh pils on tap but it ran out during the week. The other tap has my red ale which I'm drinking now but it's not that refreshing in 30 million degrees and high humidity 😂

Relax scoop, I know I said can instead of stubby, the gist was I tried my first Pale Ale in 2002. 

Anyone would think you are scanning my posts for errors.  That's a bit 😞

Had the days first schooner out the keg not so long ago. I think it’s a QLDers right of passage to make the pilgrimage to the brekky creek by 12pm any given day.  Definitely tastes better for sure.

Lemmy was the band. Great movie on Lem too. My favourite Hawkwind era was with Lemmy. When you play bass like it's a guitar, you get Motorhead.

I spent 8 days straight at the rainbow waiting for the great man to show up back in 2013. Was the year he got his pace maker so he wasn’t hanging their much. Still was good to just sit and wait though. Last time I went back to LA I visited the cemetery where he’s kept. Him and Dio are opposite each other.

I was at the rainbow in 2009 one night and someone famous must have walked in because at some point everyone suddenly got up and looked at the entrance. I didn't see who it was, maybe it was Lemmy.

When did Dr. Tim's first come out PB2? That's been around for quite a while hasn't it?

Yep!

Dr. Tim's Traditional Ale cans were first seen by the public at an Adelaide  BDO, early 2004.  Before that, they were seen at a Corporate Golf Day in Adelaide - November 2003 from memory.  At that stage, it was an all green can with no barcode.

Not a six pack, but went into a local bottle shop to buy some dry white wine for a risotto I'm making tonight & thought I'd check to see if anything new was in their beer range while I was there. Spotted the following... (Apologies if this one has already been mentioned here on the forum)

LilCreaturesXPA-2018.jpg

There appears to be quite a few interpretations of the "XPA" tag atm. looking at this pic Little Creatures have taken the light colour route ahead of everything else as other breweries have. My view of this yet to be officially categorised beer is that it should be an extension of a session pale ale at around 5-6% ABV but without excessive bitterness. Colour & malt construction can be whatever the brewery leans on.

That said, this is a nice beer to drink, very sessionable @ 4.9% ABV. As soon as I cracked the bottle cap, I had a good whiff of what came out. It took me back to the first time I ever had a Little Creatures beer. Really good even at the cold temp I poured & drank it at. 😎

I admit I couldn't pick specific aromas, just hints of various hops on each sip that made the beer interesting. Given the complex hop schedule & diversity it's no wonder I struggled to nail down specifics.

Enjoyable, but I'd like to see this beer @ 5.5% ABV with a little more hop flavour & a slightly magnified aromatic to match what it already has @ 4.9% ABV.

I'll be keeping my eyes out for this beer from now on. I liked it.

Cheers,

Lusty.

Tried one of these last night. Never again 

Why never again? I saw them on sale and thought it sounded interesting. Then bought a case of Coopers Pale Ale cans instead. Sounds like I might have made the right decision. 

Cheers,

I’m not a fan of lagers really and pilsners at that. 

My mum and her other half have been on about this beer for ages, they love it. Me, not at all.

I had one mouthful and couldn’t go back for a second. The flavours didn’t do it for me at all.

Even as a fan of lagers it doesn't sound like the greatest thing ever. What did it actually taste like?

Like a whole bunch of Saaz fermented with champagne yeast
