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).

Still caching up

Well I am still caching up, this could take some time but I am hoping that it will not make much difference to what I am doing. So here are the next new beer I had, some are not necessarily the best photos I have ever taken though. Here we go then, some beers from the first time after the stroke, lets just see how it goes.

Sadler’s, Worcester Sorcerer from England


4.3% amber colour with a good head, toffee aroma, toffee and apple taste.

Cuillin, Skye Ale from Scotland


4.2% cloudy amber colour with a good head, sweet aroma and taste.

Not that sure if the review for these two is fully correct but that's what I wrote at the time, we will just have to believe it but if I see them again though, I will have another go.

Well here we go

Well here we go, there was one beer I had the right before my trip away to York and two of the new beers I had in York the night before my stroke.

Stables, Mahogany Drift Bitter from England

52 beers 6 - 10, Stables, Mahogany Drift Bitter, England

3.8% amber colour with a good head, malt and hop aroma and a good bitter taste. Another beer from the pub at Beamish and another one that I would have again.

This was the one I had midweek before our trip away to York.  Now for the two I had in York, I am not too sure about them, its hard to remember but here goes.  Oh, I just remembered that I wrote it all down, some things are coming back to me very slowly.  I knew I was keeping track of the more resent beers but I had forgotten the stuff I did back then. 

Freeminer, YYZ from England

Freeminer, YYZ, England.

4.5% amber colour with a good head,it has a roast malt aroma and taste.  As I remember this was not too bad but as I had a stroke the morning after, we can only go on what I remember. 

Doctor Morton's, FamouS Horrable Skellington from England

Doctor Morton's, Famous Horrable Skellington, England

4.9% deep red to black colour with a good head, roast malt aroma and taste, very good beer.  I have had a couple of these beers before and they appear to be very nice and don't forget to read the label.

Back Again

Well, I am back again, I am still not back to normal but pretty near.

It has been well over a month since I last wrote anything on here, but there you go, I was a bit down.  That and not rely being able to write it all down. Tonight I am trying to type but even now, I an not sure that I can do what I used to do.  Anyway I will give it ago.

I am not drinking as much as I did, it is just something I do not know what is going to happen.  I am still drinking, that was always something that was going to happen but not as much as I did.   Therefore, I am way behind with my beer reviews but not as much as I could be.  I am going back to see what the last beer I reviewed was but there are quite a few.

Well it looks like it was Halloween 2013, well after that we visited York, which is where it all went wrong.   So I will make a start there but that will be on a new blog and it will be soon, nothing like the last couple of months.
