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

No idea. I don't really eat honey and one of the beer breweries made some and I bought a 4 pack.

This was it.


That company make a decent IPA/Pilsner.

Omnipollo Aon Pecan Mud Cake barrel aged Imperial Stout (aka Noa). "Only" a 97 on beer advocate. 11%. The greatest chocolate dessert beer I've ever had. Really thick, no gritty mouth feel like some have. Just enough alcohol taste so you know it's there.

I love dill pickles... but this seems, ewww. :-/

Is better than expected ok? Or still not great.

Wasn't great but not half bad.

All the weird stuff we just did shots vs whole can so it got shared.

Father on law mixed the Imperial Stout with lemonade and apparently that was really nice.

At 10% a bottle it kicks like a mule.

My one was only 88%.


It's a lot cheaper than the fancy fancy beer here. About $3 a bottle. Strong burnt malt/caramel taste.

Your one looks nicer than the pumpkin one.

We've got around 200 micro breweries here. Some crazy stuff being done like the pickle one.

Only having to do shots increases what I can tolerate by a lot.

Not sure if it would do Imperial Stout and Lemonade though.

It's called a shandy iirc. Beer plus lemonade.

Old fashioned idea don't think I've seen anyone from generation X onwards do it.
Didn't have many options back in the day though. If you wanted a low alcohol drink options were limited to watering something down.

More or less stopped drinking once dinner turned up and skipped the big can of Baltika 7 so yeah ended up better than I thought.

Might have to get more of that imperial stout it went down well with the group.

There are a lot of those sold here, but they're usually lemonade and something light (a lager or a wheat). I'm a fan of those. I've never heard of one with a Stout. I'll see if the idea grows on me.

It was an added option from a boomer.

You couldn't really get RTDs before the 90s and adding lemonade was and old fashioned thing.

Monteith's was a micro/premium beer that got bought out by the big boys. But it's only marginally more expensive than normal beer.

Often I just buy whatever's on special that's a Euro style lager. Odds are it's still better than the cheap stuff at the same price range.

Birthday dinner tonight, happy hour beer is $3.50 usd and that can get you a hazy IPA or stout that's 5.8-6.8%.

There's also a beer cocktail which is the hazy ipa with tequila and lime in it.

Almost a litre but it costs around $12 usd. Think it's 5 or 6 standard drinks though one made me giggle last time.
