Abbeydale Brewery, Sheffield, UK – Serenity #3, Session IPA, 3.8%, 440ml can

A true Sheffield institution, Abbeydale were founded in 1996. The Serenity series continues with a succulently juicy, floral summery session beer, pale and unfined it’s a delicious thirst quencher.

Tiny Rebel, Newport, UK – Dutty, Vermont Session IPA, 4.2%, 330ml can.

Okay so we’ve all had Dutty before, but it’s very quickly becoming a classic! Vermont is the home of New England IPA, hence the name. A little hazy with some hefty tropical aromas and lots of soft peach and mango on the taste. A little bitterness balances out the fruitiness and gives you a beer you’ll want to drink again.

The Wild Beer Co, Shepton Mallet, UK – Quantic, Session IPA, 4.7%, 330ml can.

The Wild Beer Co have brewed this session IPA using Simcoe hops. Bucking the trend of juicy hazy pales they have created a crisp, dry and light everyday sessionable beer. In their own words, “we love the piney resinous and citrus nature of Simcoe hops which pairs wonderfully with the passionfruit notes from Mosaic”. And we agree!

Buxton Brewery, Buxton, UK – Dar Skyline, Dry-hopped Berliner weisse, 4.9%, 330ml can

A dry hopped Berliner weisse from Buxton, zingy lactic acidity melds with dank citrus and pine notes from the hops. A new world sour beer that gives you lemon sherbert and tropical fruit all the way down.

Wiper & True, Bristol, UK – Small Beer, Light Pale Ale, 2.7%, 440ml can

An exceptionally satisfying and full-bodied beer for its stature, with the same big hop hit you may expect from more muscular pale ales. It’s vibrant with citrus, tropical fruit and hedgerow berry flavours, with a gentle bitter finish.

Duration Brewing, Norfolk, UK – Little Fanfare, Grisette, 4.0%, 440ml can .

Another Duration beer that is blowing us away right now. This beer is so tasty and refreshing. Loral and Saaz hops give bags of citrus fruit and herbal notes. In addition to orange peel it has a sweet cracker like malt base and a dry finish.

Brauhaus Tegernseer, Tegernsee, Germany – Tegernsee Pils, Pilsner, 5.0%, 330ml bottle.

One of our favourite German breweries, and one that we visited in May last year. They only make 7 beers, and the Pils is hard to come by! Typically clean, herbaceous with a snappy crisp finish.

If you chose ‘I like all beers’

Cloudwater, Manchester, UK – Step Up, Stout, 5.0%, 440ml can (collaboration with Rock Leopard Brewing Co, Welling)

Roasted malt, coffee and light smoke on the nose, with flavours of soft caramel, plum and brown toast. This stout is medium-bodied and smooth, with a dry finish. Little bonus, 5% of the proceeds will be donated by Cloudwater to charities and causes that help those facing society’s biggest hurdles.

If you chose ‘No dark beers’

Burning Sky, Firle, UK – Arise, Pale Ale, 4.4%, 440ml can.

Straw gold in colour, a balanced malt bill gives a great mouth feel and a finish that keeps on giving. Restrained bitterness followed by massive peach, pine & resinous hop flavours to keep you satisfied.
