Old Cellar Dweller 2016 Driftwood Brewery πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ American Barleywine 11.8% ABV β€’ N/A IBU Another great beer from @driftwoodbrewery! American style barleywine - strong, heavy on malt and packed with hops. The aroma is absolutely incredible - wild flowers and honey. Quite a bit of sherry & wine on the palate followed by a slight alcohol burn and hop bitterness. Still a bit rough but should age gracefully. I've got another bottle that will dwell in my cellar for at least a couple of years... #punintended πŸ˜„ Cheers 🍺

Today I'm looking at this years International Rainbow Project, for those unfamiliar it's an annual project pairing seven of the best UK breweries with seven of the best US breweries where each pair randomly draws a colour of the rainbow to inspire a collaborative brew. Generally the emphasis here is on innovation and experimentation, I'll go through these one by one with my thoughts on each. _____________________ Red: Magic Rock/Casita Cerveceria - Amanecer Mexicano _____________________ To start with we've got a lime, hibiscus and chilli gose, this was one of my favourites of the bunch. Huge hit of fragrant hibiscus with pithy citrus cutting through it, the chilli is subtle but just has a lingering presence on the dry, salty finish. _____________________ Orange: Partizan/New Belgium - West Fork _____________________ Here we have a Saison brewed with spruce tips and experimental hop 522, not as much spruce as i would of liked, this beer maintains a very traditional Saison profile, not a bad thing but a little dull. The main thing that struck me however is the orange beer had a yellow label, very odd... _____________________ Yellow: Beavertown/Jester King - Rex Apiary _____________________ The yellow entry is a 4.7% Biere de Miel, or a Saison with honey, with additions of lemon and rosemary. This one really worked for me, lots of zesty lemon with a sweet honey finish, the rosemary is subtle but it's there, all on top of a high acidity, almost vinous and funky farmhouse base. _____________________ Green: Hawkshead/Modern Times - Mojito _____________________ This was an interesting one, on first sip i was totally overcome with mint - an ingredient in beer that can be very hard to manage, but almost immediately it settled down into a harmonious balance of mint, lime and rum barrel flavours. An inspired concoction i revisited several times on draft. _____________________ (continued in comments)

La Trappe Quadrupel Smells a bit plummy. Tastes a bit like that as well. 10% but doesn't taste a lot of it. Similar to a standard tripel in most other aspects. 🌟🌟🌟

Legendary brewing- iron jack Lager I get that dissing shit macro brews is about as fresh as saying nickelback are a bad band or that trump is a bad president. That said, this is awful enough- and the marketing has been ubiquitous enough - that a roasting is in order. Leaving aside how everything about it reeks of corporate wank- Legendary Brewing co an obvious front for Lion group, the press release that mentions a "brand director" as opposed to, yknow, a brewer- it's just a really unnecessary, remarkably watery mid strength (which is really unaustralian in itself). It's basically a shittier great northern. Considering Lion have super dry as a far better mid strength option you gotta wonder what they were thinking. Tastes like someone got a few tonnes of soda water- had a truck of the stuff, I dunno, added one cup of malt and decided to make a beer out of it. Honestly, why make this? Who is this aimed for? It's really shit beer, but it's not the cheapest going. People who drink mid strength are already set on their brands. This has no reason to exist. The people who planned this beer are the dictionary definition of oxygen thieves. If you see someone drinking this, make sure you punch them in the face. Disgraceful. 1.5/10 #beer #craftbeer #beergeek #beerlover #beernerd #beergram #instabeer #craftnotcrap #beerfan #beersofinstagram #drinkbeer #drinkcraft #beerreview #beerreviews #ilovebeer #lovebeer #beerblog #beerlife #ironjack #shithouse

@harviestounbrewery #oldengineoil β–ͺharviestoun brewery- β–ͺold engine oil- β–ͺenglish porter- β–ͺ6% abv- The beer pours out a pitch black color with 2 fingers of frothy mocha colored head......... the aromas are of roasted malts, with light coffee and chocolate notes....... the flavors follow the nose with the big roasted malts up front, giving away to chocolate and coffee flavors on the finish........... Overall this is a decent porter, well balanced with a smooth finish....... 3.5/5 #harviestounbrewery #englishporter #beerenthusiast #beerreviews #beerporn #craftbeer #instabeer #cervesa #beerbeer
