The Friday Night 6 Pack Session

Recommended Posts

Having a Grolsch swingtop tonight. Decided to grab a four pack to try and for the bottles 😊 Not a bad beer at all for a lager.

Grolsch isn't bad at all, has some flavour. Plus... free bottles!

Got myself a pack of these bad boys for tonight. Grim RIPA, a Black Rye IPA from Noisy Minor Brewing.

Stunning, perfect blood orange flavour. I hope Asahi treat Green Beacon well.

Lovely Red IPA. Like an imperial amber... good malty back bone. Yummy smoked pork crackling too.

Arc valley lager for me, don't feel like spending a crap load on beer this week and at $33 a carton it's not too bad for its price, better than local megaswill. Right up @The Captain!!'s alley I reckon. 🤣

LOL... I drank Great Northern the other day. Amazing... NO flavour at all. Better than VB at least.

I am having/had a Kaiju Krush and Balter XPA. Love the hops coming from the Krush so far, but I have made comparable, in my not so humble opinion. Always like the XPA and will top it off with the Munich lme ale I have.  In between a chorizo and pepperoni pizza. I think it belongs to my wife but I am eating it. It could be the calm before the storm, fellas. 2 pieces left 😎.

Cheers

Norris

P.S I did use a glass, I didn't just chug it from the can...Or did I?

As a guy directly involved in the industry, I just don't get the whole appeal of Great Northern & Iron Jack. It is purely marketing because the beers themselves are still crap.

The two big boy breweries that produce these beers really need to have a good hard look at themselves & what they are about. These two beers just replace the same crap at the same level as their predecessors with just minute alterations in the bottle, colour, taste & sales pitch.

One thing I would like to know is when did QLD orientated beer become the fit model for the whole of Australian mass produced beer? 🤔

Cheers,

Lusty.

At least I now know what all your regular visits to the USA are about.

A free shave, & filming. 😜

More like a Tuesday night one pack session for me, I got a six pack of the Coopers XPA to see what it's like, got a couple chilling in the kegerator ATM. The other 5 cans will see me through to Friday night when I expect the pale ale keg will be carbonated enough to enjoy a few glasses.

The last time I drank Chimay was early 90's. I feel an urge to update my memory of those beers.

Grabbed a 6-pack of red (Sparkling) cans and a 6-pack of Purple (XPA) cans for sampling on Friday.

Cheers,

Legends Lager, beats Great Norther (or black fish as they call it here) any day

IMG_20190928_123943.thumb.jpg.803bd793b5d2a4be81c3e54bf9ea4de1.jpg
