Short beer review
Meyer Lemon from Crooked Stave
It's fine. Maybe my expectations are too high for this brewery, but it's not overly flavorful, and the finish is just bitter. There is some lemon at the start, but, meh.

Short beer review
Meet Your Maker from Monkless
Love this brewery. This beer tastes great. It is a Belgian dark ale. But way too effervescent. Maybe it was this bottle, but way too many bubbles.
I will keep my eye out for that brewery and Stillwater.

They know their way around a potato. Not a bad brewski either.

Baltika 6, Imperial Stout, IPA and APA and some beer apparently that was around in the Soviet Union.

Decided to start with Baltika 6. It's a porter at 7%.

Beer advocate gives it an 82 which is pretty good for a macro beer imho. Poured from a 470ml bottle, 2.6 standard drinks abv.


Probably do the Imperial Stout next it's 10% abv.

Stinking hot day. Officially it's 25 but that's out at the airport I'm guessing late 20s.

Baltika Imperial Stout.

Thick head not as much of a burnt/caramel taste. At 10% though you can taste the booze.

3.5 abv in a 440ml bottle. Bit smoother than the last one. Six months over it's expiry date but that can improve dark beers in brown bottles.

They kick like a mule, these two beers equivilent to a 6 pack.

88 I beer advocate.

Basically just a macro brew Euro golden lager. I like it, not great. 4.5% 900ml can.

7/10 fair rating. Above average but just a beer (lager).

Sobrehumano Palena Ole...I think that's the name? From Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales.
If you like funky, oaked, beer, this is for you. Great example of the style. But if you don't like sours, or funk, you should avoid this beer. I'd buy it again.

Anyone know anything about mead? if so, would love to read about it....

I love Mead, however it gets me drunk very, very quickly!

The stuff i'm currently drinking is Viking Bloods Mead from the Lancashire mead company, its very rich which makes it perfect for cold winter nights

I wasn't a fan of it. Sweeut and didn't like the taste ymmv. Didn't get me drunk as I couldn't finish the bottle. They were selling 4 packs of it here.

I would try different types though.

It can be too sweet, but i would advise looking around as the quality varies a lot, and a lot of the more mas market brands tend to over sweeten. I'm guessing from the fact New Zealand makes some amazing honey, there must me some great Meads over there too
