Self-imposed scheduling disaster at an end, I return unto the fray of writing and publishing beer reviews. I have them for the last couple of weeks but they aren't yet ready to be posted - because I am a mock-perfectionist. In the meantime, I had an ale and reviewed it directly, just like God intended.

It's summer, what better way to celebrate the warmth and the sunshine than by plugging a big heavy chocolate stout?
I've had this before, but it was a very long time ago. A good colleague of mine gave me this one as a gift and so it follows that I would have it and review it - and today has been lovely and warm so it seemed fitting to have...

It's been a while in coming, this review, and I'm keen to finally add my voice to the chorus. So, enjoy my thoughts on Lagunitas IPA - or, you know, you don't have to enjoy them so much at all. Violently disagree if you like!
I've seen this one around a lot in the beer reviewing circles on Google+ and it always gets a good treatment, and so, not for the first time, I am trying an ale based on the recommendations of other good people. And this reco...

Ooh, ooh, look! There's sunshine and warmth and flies buzzing and it's sunny. In the UK. At around summer time. And I'm at work... oh, poop.

Agreed, and all gone from my local supermarket now. :(

And thank you!

It's Thursday, it's Thursday, it's a warm day and so it's a day for ale. Yeah, yeah, I know I'm behind the times but what else can I do when I'm as stingy as a stingy thing and yet drawn to ales I've never had before? This evening I review the Lagunitas stable, another one a long time in coming.

So it would appear as though Aldi have a beer festival vibe for the moment. And, you know, they've done a good job. I got a haul of five in for the first day (I didn't plan to be there, I'd popped in for bread) and we'll see how I fare with all of the ones on offer. Because they're not a bad selection.

As much as I feel like a corporate shill (and maybe I am, but no one is paying me, alas) I do feel that it is worth drawing attention to this one. There's a good selection, at a good price, with some rather nice breweries listed and supported.

Good work Aldi.

I'm on the Cocker Hoop after some rather successful interviews earlier in the week. That is, successful for me on the other side of the desk getting a great new colleague who ought to fit well with my already brilliant team!

So, obviously, it's beer review time.
Another day, another chance for an ale of an evening. Can't say I've been too busy, but the chance to kick back and have some of the malted stuff is always welcome. And now seems like the best time for it. So, tonight, withou...
