Fancy something a bit sour that isn't so big on the citrus that it blows out your tastebuds from orbit like that mad offering from brewdog? Well, you may just find what you're looking for with this one from Stone...

That's a fair point. I guess I linked it to the Elvis Juice - the coriander does a good job or reining in the citrus tone on this one. I think delight covers the feelings very well!

An evening like this, with warm air and some wind, calls for something with a bit of power to it. Thanks to my host in Leeds I have just the thing too!

It's not half bad, I can see me getting more if I get the chance. Bit of a sour one. You know, just read the review and let me know if you agree!

Ah, ales. I shall tell ye of the sour that I never had when I was at the Beer Festival and how it tastes now I'm back at home. It's brewed by Stone and so it should be able to match the insanity of brewdog, see what you think.

I do hope so. I think I've just exhausted the low ABVs now!

Mind you, I'm getting on to the stuff I buy in to keep around too...

Sometimes a weekend makes you happy with ale, this is one of those weekends.

Mainly drinking ales that I have had before but all had over a few days at home in Ilkeston, the Midlands. With added news.
This week is the time I can make it official - we are getting another addition to the family in the form of a small human some time in April. Scan at the beginning of the week confirmed that it was not a Velociraptor (which i...

I know, it's madness. They'll be the future, God help us.

Re-reviews in this entry - good to see how my thoughts and tastes have changed over the last few years and good to have the time to have a few ales. And we fed ducks. Though those ducks don't feature much in the review.

I don't celebrate easily. And this weekend is no exception, but I did have four different ales, most of which I have had before, so this was mainly an exercise in seeing how my tastes have changed, for change they have.

Sometimes your real ale is more of a sour these days. But I am rather pleased with this one. No nuking stuff from orbit this time, but a definite bite to it that you won't find in most of what you'll see on supermarket shelves.

You know that there are these sours doing the rounds? I tried one from Kernel when I was over on Leeds and wasn't terrible impressed. However, this one... This one isn't half bad actually. See what you make of my thoughts on it.

Ho there beer reviewers! I come with news of a sour that I have never had before and a low quality badly lit picture of an ale I had at home being a gift from my host in Leeds. See what you make of it!

Tonight is the review of a nightcap I never had. Citrusy Wit is the ale, Stone the brewer, and sour is the taste. Not a bad one for an evening.

Also post titles, heading for shorter ones!

Ah, now, see, this is just a picture of Ilkeston from space. So not really a beer photo. However, there are four better pictures in the entry.

I have some cheap and cheerful, but decent, drinking ales and muse on the additional news that the last week brought. Nothing special but some ales worth considering, methinks, from Black Sheep, Full Mash, Ilkley Brewery and Hog's Back.

Some real ale over a whole weekend. Most of it the cheap stuff but, let's face it, the sort of ale that was dying out a few short years ago.

No, these are drinking ales that are readily available and I hope my humble thoughts will remind us just how lucky we are when the big special brews are out there but the decent stuff can be bought in bottles easily enough.

That's Ilkeston from the air by the way.
