    19) evoo4u - Irish Red Ale (bottled 5/3/2017)

    Nowt experience wi' the style......lovely drop, easy drinking, beautiful deep red colour through. Highly carbed, might help explain the bottle that busted a bum. And that Seehuusen likeness is really freakin' me out. Likje a Martin/Van Morrison love child.

    15) Bradsbrew- Barrel aged strong stout de garde - ready now.

    [​IMG]

    I knew this was straight off the keg so I thought I'd better get stuck in. Lovely combination of sour and chocolate. Carb was lacking so I hit it with the carb cap and was a happy chappy.

    Was good Brad.

    There's a Thames Valley -II-?!?

    Looks like I'm going straight back to Step 1 at Thames Valley Anonymous.... and I'd just apologised to everyone I've hurt for using 1275 :(

    I would avoid using it if I were you - it has a habit of producing really flavoursome beers.

    Instead you should pack it in some icepacks and send it up to me.

    If that's not an option, throw it in your next porter, stout, American ale or British ale and enjoy. It attenuates a lot more than 1469/MJ's Empire, so consider that in OG and mash temp. But compared to US-05 for example, it has a similar attenuation but leaves a lot more malt - and still lets hops shine - resulting in a more balanced beer. It produces a little cherry and pear but it's subtle. Just makes very flavoursome beers where everything shines. And yeah great in anything British, but will probably attenuate too much for mild - where Windsor or 1469/Empire would be a better pick.

    (talking about 1275 here - have never used the second one)

    Because of MadPierry, and the mad bottle pop/high carbonation.
    Besides what had already accurately been mentioned, I got hints of sultanas in there. Top drop mate :)

    A fancy beer pic too

    5. pcqypcqy - Mosaic Saison Psuedo Smash 7.5%ABV.

    This is interesting. Excuse my sporadic tasting note... Blueberry and pine aromas so definitely getting the mosaic. The saison yeast really comes into play in terms of taste profile. You can certainly feel the warmth, not hot but as you'd expect from 7.5%. It then kinda wanders towards that rich sweet malt you get from barley wine, but without the sweetness.

    If I can fault it the carbonation is a bit on the low side. Otherwise I'm really enjoying this. Nice work ImageUploadedByAussie Home Brewer1500282250.671744.jpg

    Updated. Had an IPA last night and it's comfortably in the top 50 IPA's I've ever tasted, but needs a bit more carbonation to lift the aroma a bit and present the head properly.

    __21 BB - 7% Macadamia Bock - ready to drink from 15-Sep, would try before end October to guarantee carbonation (approaching ~5mths in the bottle)
    __21 IPA - 7.2%, ~90-100IBU, hazy, extra pale black session IIPA. Could drink from 24th July but I would suggest 31st July or 7th Aug to get the head presenting properly. With the haze it's darker than it should be due to Victory, Munich II and decoction, but still nice. This had Waimea added to the decoction, a FWH of Waimea and Challenger, Challenger added every minute of the 60min boil, Chinook and Wai-iti every minute for part of the boil, flameout with Chinook and Wai-iti and was dry-hopped a few times with Waimea, Chinook, Wai-iti and a fair bit of Motueka. So I think hopped at every stage I could... induces some interesting dreams this one.

    Cheers. I transferred from a keg using a carb cap. Some were better than others, so you might have got a less good one. I tried to overcarb a bit in the keg to compensate.

    8) crowmanz - Tassie Wild Dark Mild: Dark Mild recipe fermented with Tasmanian Wild Yeasts Mount Field 1

    Pours like Cola in colour. Carbonation bang on with good lacing. On the soft drink theme it has a bit of sarsaparilla going on. Not sour as such and the malt profile is mainly background noise. This beer is a pure expression of the yeast, and it's a shame that TWY pulled the pin as their stuff was great.

    I've still got some of the mount Hartz and on the back of this I might whip up a dark beer with it.

    Nice beer
