Dane (Doctors Orders) used to run this site.
Things have changed.
Got my Bribie on today with a $10 glasses pack and a 6 pack of Flensburger Pilsener at Aldi. Not an outstanding Pils, a bit more bitter with more earthiness than typical brews. Ok drop probably on par with a $15 asking price. I like the swingtop bottles though
Dunno about bad luck as such, but a very random buy that I wouldn't usually do.
Yep, someone mentioned about his site involvement to me already, and I've seen some of his discussions in posts when I've looked up searches of older threads. Certainly no disrespect intended, and I appreciate the level of experimental ethos he's running with, but geez that was a shit drink.
I expect the same level of honesty for my own.
Doc (other admin) yes but was Dane (site owner) also involved? Genuine question, was mostly before my time.
Cracking beer to my taste.
4 pines kolsch. yum.
The girls behind the bar at Pink Alley, Collins Quarter (Melb) thought it strange that someone would take a pic of a beer bottle...
An excellent beer. My favourite of the 4 Silk Roads ive had. I guess its a dessert beer. I had to Google Cascara so i can't say what it tastes like but the cinnamon is definitely there. Cinnamon is something i might try in a brew someday. Tastey!
No ESB on handpump?
A couple here, cracking sour/sweet thingy going on, this has been sitting in aging shelf for a while now.
Birrissie's got some lovely beer stuff going on right now........get it if ya can.
Very yummy, and perfect for drinking on this rainy day....well any day really.
Not bad, easy drinking at any rate
Mr banks oatmeal, don't mind it but not knocking my socks off.
Capital Brewing Co, Canberra. It's nice to go away and be able to buy a decent beer in a place like Bermagui. We love Bermi' !
Very nicely balanced beers, I think my question to the head brewer would be what is his/her opinion on balance.
When in Rome, do as the Roman's do.
Been many a year since I've had a XXXX Bitter, unashamedly my choice of macro lager. I'm a little dissapointed to see it's been watered down to 4.4% but it's still a moderately bold no-nonsense Aussie lager that could be downed all night.
Today's episode of "What is Wiggy Drinking" is a shocker!!!
A few of these should see me right this evening
And a complete change, Balter's Black Metal Disco. A classic stout coming in at 5.4%. Tending more towards chocolate with moderate roast, it ticks all the boxes but doesn't nail any. It's hard to explain... I'm thinking US hops were used but with an English base or yeast, or maybe lots of crystal. Not bad, wouldn't go out of my way to demand they make it a regular brew.
This one is a ripper! Really nice sweetness balanced this out as a very smashable beer. As clean as a lager should be too!
