If you know me or of me, you will know I like beer. Over the last few years I have been collecting photos of every new beer I have.
I now have over 1,700 individual beers photographed and have realised that many beers that I assumed I have photos of, I haven't.

This blog will be therefore be an account of my quest for new beers to photo and how I enjoyed them (or not).

Oops, I missed one

I missed one of Saturday's new beers.

Shepherd Neame, Up and Under Ale from England
  Shepherd Neame, Up and Under Ale, England

 I do not think it mentioned Shepherd Neame on the bottle but I am assured that's who brews it. 4.0% deep amber colour with a good head, the aroma and taste is all dark chocolate. My review is totally different from all the other reviews I have looked at, nobody else seemed to taste chocolate.

The title is not aimed Jonny Wilkinson, he is still the best in the world.

Saturday's new beers

The BBQ went very well, good food, good company and good beers, three of the beers were new as well.

Wold Top, Angler’s Reward from England

A nice golden summer beer, 4.0% gold colour with a thin head, citrus hop aroma and dry citrus hop taste.

Duyck, Biere Blonde de Tradition from France
Duyck, Biere Blonde de Tradition, France

6.0% gold colour with a thin head, the aroma and taste is a lot like Leffe Blonde, we had a Leffe next and the Leffe was slightly better though.

Tom Wood's, Harvest Bitter from England

4.3% hazy gold colour with a thin head, it smelt and tasted of coal tar it was not nice. As it was hazy there is a chance this bottle was off.
