The beer we've tried. Ranked.

BrewDog Speedbird 100

9

/10

Ahh. You can't beat that first sip of a beer you know you can trust.

Hoegaarden Belgian Wheat Beer

9

/10

I'm yet to find another beer I like this much.

Yeastie Boys Bigmouth Session IPA

9

/10

Has a slight twang, something special about it. It's drinks like this that made me fall in love with pale ales.

Vocation Brewery & Yeastie Boys Breakfast Club.

9

/10

I know stouts are traditionally a winter beer, but I couldn't put this down, or stand up afterwards.

BrewDog Clockwork Tangerine

8

/10

If you like sweet fruit infused beers and especially if you like tangerines, hopefully you'll enjoy this one as much as I did.

Black Sheep Brewery. Pineapple Milkshake

8

/10

No, I’m not talking about Jesus (he’s busy). Usually, when I return somewhere it’s to apologise for the first time.

Eagle Brewery Banana Bread Beer

8

/10

Once opened, it gives off a sweet banana smell, one that takes me down memory lane.

Wild Card Brewery Unite Tribute

8

/10

A light, juicy IPA bursting with exotic fruit flavours. It pours to a light-yellow hazy colour, with a short foamy head.

Fourpure Brewing Company Juicebox Citrus IPA

8

/10

It’s fresh, zesty, has a mild citrus taste, not too over powering. Perfect for summer drinking.

BrewDog Pale Ale

7

/10

Ahh lockdown. Nothing like a worldwide pandemic to make people take up new hobbies.

Drygate Brewing Co - Disco Forklift Truck (2 Reviews)

7

/10

After a heavy night previous, and an afternoon of slaving away over a hot BBQ I needed a pick me up, enter "Disco Forklift Truck"

Drygate Brewing Co - Crossing the Rubicon

7

/10

I would definitely have this beer again, but the only negative point I have is that it’s not a memorable beer.

London Beer Factory - Hazey daze session IPA

7

/10

Once I pulled this funky over-sized ring pull I got a strong smell of pineapple, citrus and tropical fruits.

Brewdog Dead Pony Club

7

/10

If you're after a refreshing session pale ale but still kicks you in the teeth with its flavour, give this a try!

Freak Aleworks Phantom Pale Ale (2 reviews)

7

/10

The smell of some zesty citrus notes comes through, paired with a malt and light hoppy finish.

Modelo Especial

7

/10

Orange blossom honey aroma. Nobody but a green fingered pillock is going to know what that is.

Bira 91 White

7

/10

This delicious wheat beer, with its strong wheat taste and (predominantly orange) citrusy flavour, immediately reminds of an easy-drinking craft beer.

BrewDog Elvis Juice (6 reviews)

6.66

/10

On Facebook, we held a 'which beer to review' poll and the resounding winner was Elvis Juice.

Lukas Helles

6

/10

Grab a couple because you won't be disappointed.

Hatherwood Plunged Orange (2 reviews)

6

/10

This beer is like Gotye - does one thing well, but doesn't bother doing anything else.

Brew York Kajiuce

6

/10

A rollercoaster beer.

Hatherwood Craft Beer Bitter Iron IPA

6

/10

This Bitter Iron IPA is 5.4%, just out of realms of a session beer, but it tastes like one.

Steam Brew Session IPA

5

/10

No stand out flavours, just watery fizzy beer, but no complaints from me.

Bevog Tak Pale Ale

4

/10

It takes you on a taste journey which you could compare to a commute.

Camden Show Off Lager

3

/10

It sits on your tongue like an undesirable whose just tarmac‘d your driveway.

Vocation Divide and Conquer

2

/10

On the can it states 'character this strong will always split opinion', and they are not wrong.

Red Rye Captain Pale Ale.

2

/10

Wish this Captain would go down with the ship.

71 Brewing Co Raspberry Mash

2

/10

This beer has been staring at me every time I open my fridge, intimidating me, mocking me.
