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).

Beer I had in Stratford

It is called beer I had in Stratford but I didn't have a lot, in fact I only had three new beers in all. Saying that I did drink plenty, its just that the campsite bar only had Boddingtons (not to sure about that but I think it was Boddingtons, sorry to the site it it wasn't).

Oakham, Great Gustav from England

Oakham, Great Gustav, England

4.8% deep gold colour with a nice head, hop aroma and a very hoppy taste, far to hoppy for me. I come from the days when hops was used for a reason and not to give too much hop taste.

Black and Tan, Colonel's Whiskers from England

Black and Tan, Colonel's Whiskers, England

4.3% black with a thin head, liquorish aroma and a bitter liquorish taste. Not too bad and a lot better that the previous one.

Hook Norton, Lion from England

4.4% pale amber colour with a thin head, malty and hoppy aroma, with a very similar hoppy taste. Not quite as bad as the first one but it was hoppy.
