Friday 13 January 2012
1. Pitfield 1850 London Porter
This is a black beer with chocolate and malt flavours, brewed to an 1850 Whitbread recipe from a pioneer of British microbrewing.
2. Hop Back Entire Stout
Boasting a strong roasted malt flavour and a long, smooth aftertaste, it was Camra's Supreme Champion Winter Beer of Britain.
3. Worthingtons White Shield IPA
This is feisty and full, with a powerful hoppiness and bittersweet finish. it dates back to the 1820s.
4. Schneider Weisse
A rich and full-bodied beer, tan in colour with a clove-like fruity bouquet. Froma brewery of great history and tradition.
5. Calvors Premium
Most mainstream lagers are watered down from stronger brews, but expect none of this nonsense with Calvors. Brewed in Suffolk.
6. Goose Island IPA
This Chicago beer has shedloads of hops with big herbaceous perfumes: think tangerines, lychees and lime.
7. Coniston Brewing Company Bluebird Bitter
Pale, with just a hint of colour, it has a huge orange fruit aroma, balanced by biscuit malt.
8. Thornbridge Wild Swan
This pale ale is a great session beer. White-gold, it has aromas of light bitter lemon, a hint of herb and a subtle spiciness.
9. St Austell Admiral's Ale
Cornish barley is blended with Styrian Golding and Cascade hops for an award-winning ale.
10. Beer Chang
Beer Chang is Thailand's biggest selling lager. It's not sophisticated but is great with Asian food or as a fun drink on its own.
