Ballast Point Beers

I bought a random selection of beers last week. One of which being an IPA from this brewery.

It was so awful I had to pour it away after a couple of sips. It tasted like fish.

The point of this post however, is that I googled it, and apparently it was meant to taste like fish.

Why would anyone want this?

I'm very open to trying new types of beers. I'm quite partial to sour fruit ales which definitely wouldn't be top of everyones list. This was just a random purchase because it had a fancy looking can.

This was the offending beer btw.

Imagine your breath after a night on them.

Had the Durham Brewery Chilli Stout. Took a swig, went down, I could feel the heat come back up my throat then attack my eyes & nose :lol: Ended up with tears in my eyes. I’d actually buy it again for a laugh.

I had a craft beer in Spain once that was brewed with sea water, it fucking tasted like it as well. Rancid.
That would be a Gose - an old beer style that’s been brewed by the Germans for about 700 years and was specifically exempted from Reinheitsgebot due to its geographical and historical relevance.

Na, it wasn't a gose. Gose is more a specific style. Had loads of them when they became popular again a year or so ago.

This was just a blonde/pale beer brewed with sea water. - RateBeer
