Firestone Walker, Paso Robles, USA – Fly Jack, Hazy IPA, 4.0%, 355ml can
One of our favourite breweries in California, and we have a few beers in from them at the moment. This is a nice easy session IPA similar to Easy Jack but even more crushable. As an added bonus, it’s also following the trend of low calories beers, with only 96 Kcal per can.
Brouwerij Het Anker, Belgium – Gouden Carolus UL.T.R.A., Belgian pale ale, 3.7%, 330ml bottle.
You’re all familiar with Table Beer from The Kernel, well this is where the inspiration came for that beer. A Belgian pale ale that’s low in alcohol, so low in fact that you can drink it like it’s table water!
Flensburger Brauerei, Flensburg, Germany – Pilsener, Pilsner, 4.8%, 330ml bottle.
We love our German beers, and everyone seemed to enjoy the one from last months box so we’ve included one again. Pilsner is crisp and dry with a fairly decent whack of hops, delivering a nice bitter finish. This is a classic, and popping the top is a thrill all by itself.
Sierra Nevada, Chico, USA – California IPA, IPA, 4.2%, 355ml can
Where would any of us be if it wasn’t for Sierra Nevada? They single handedly started the microbrewery revolution almost 40 years ago. This fairly new addition to their line up shows just why they’re the kings of hoppy little gems. Aromatic, damn tasty and super refreshing.
Brasserie St Feuillien, Le Roeux, Belgium – Saison, 6.5%, 330ml bottle
A classic style from a classic Belgian brewery. Fruit and spice on the nose with a peppery dry finish, saison is the perfect quaffing beer after a long day of working in the fields of Wallonia. Alternatively you can just enjoy this at home after a day at the office.
Track Brewing Co, Manchester, UK – Sonoma, Pale Ale, 3.8%, 440ml can .
We were in Manchester recently at Bundobust and I head to the bar for a beer, I looked around to see everyone drinking cask pints of a very attractive looking beer, one look at the menu and I realised, it must be Sonoma. This has very quickly become a Manchester classic, once you try it you’ll get it too.
Beatnikz Republic, Manchester, UK – I Smash Simcoe, Pale Ale, 5.0%, 440ml can.
Smash actually stands for ‘single malt and single hop’, a very simple beer showcasing however a very complex and delicious hop. Simcoe has somewhat of a candied orange flavour to it, presented beautifully in this beer.
If you chose ‘I like all beers’
Magic Rock, Huddersfield, UK – Dark Arts Chocolate, Chocolate Stout, 6.0%, 330ml can
We’ve long admired Dark Arts for its simplicity, we often tell people that it’s a stout with no added flavours. Well the wall has been breached and after the delicious hazelnut version we had on tap recently they’ve now done a chocolate version too!
If you chose ‘No dark beers’
Duration Brewing, Norfolk, UK – Turtles All The Way Down, Pale Ale, 5.5%, 440ml can.
We’re all in awe of this beer at HBH. It’s one of the best beers around right now, just the right amount of haze and hops. Wonderfully balanced and endlessly drinkable. We’re sure you’ll agree!
