Craft Beer

Stupid question but what’s up with certain Belgian beers having a bubblegum flavour to them? I always find Kwak reminiscent of a bubblegum flavour and can’t work out why

Just opened that Aldi Stout About it. Tastes like sick

Already had -

Looper - IPA, wasn’t for me. I blame you lit
Eden Moon - Canny, but too placid
Espresso Martini Milk Stout - canny
Brew York - Chocolate Story - disappointed. The first Brew York stout that’s average
Northern Star - The biscuit one - second time I’ve had it. Think it’s really good.

I tried that strawberry one they had called were jammin or something and it was absolutely disgusting. Had to struggle through that.

Read a few reviews of these beers, think there’s 4 of them & thought it was just people whinging on because it’s Aldi. That’s strawberry one has got some horrendous reviews

That looks like sprint pace to me, good luck marra!

Started at about 12 bells. Half time into 2 of 4 matches. Had a fiver on West Brom to beat Chelsea :cool:

I’ve actually got different shelves in the fridge at the minute. Session & imperials.

I apologised to my sink when I poured the strawberry one away. Quite possibly the worst beer I've ever had. I saw the Aldi stout last week and didn't bother as Aldi beers are pretty much all terrible.

I powered through the first one but then decided the second one wasn’t worth the same pain. I agree, possibly the worst I’ve ever had.

Ive got a can of Deya glue, as well and crocodile tiers for tonight. Excited to try.

Not sure if it's classed as craft but I've been enjoying this lately :


Saw it in Aldi and picked it up to try. Don't drink lager often these days but enjoyed it.

Just tried a can of Witbier orange and vanilla I got from beer52 this month. Possibly the worst thing I’ve ever tasted. Even worse than the Aldi strawberry lager. Tasted like when you’re sick in your mouth. I usually like orangey flavoured beers but this was just odd.

Had a bottle of Thornbridge Satzuma before though and that was lush. One of the best citrus beers I’ve had.

The best orange beer I’ve ever had was Beavertown Bloody Ell about 4 years ago, it was tremendous. Sadly, it’s now watery shite.

Funnily enough I tried a can of that last weekend and thought it was pretty average. Was expecting better.

It used to be brilliant, it was 6.something% and was only released once a year when Seville oranges were in season. Now it’s just a cheap imitation.
