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).

First Week of 2015

Well I have had two new beers this week, I did have plenty of beer between Christmas and New Year but nothing new.  Well all of that is tosh, I left my camera at my mothers and theses are from between Christmas and New Year, and I just got the camera back.

Shepherd Neame, Artesian Dark Ale from England

3.8% deep amber with a thin head, not much aroma but the taste was ok but a little bit watery, although it is a week beer .

Direct Beers, Cat Piss from, England

4.8% gold colour with a good head, some lemon in the aroma, slightly sweet taste.  Another one of these beers, they are not bad but I would say very ordinary, although the labels and names are different.

5.0% dark brown colour with a nice head, fruity aroma and a nice Christmas taste, not bad for the last one, even if the label is a bit dodgy.

Tesco Revisionist Beers, well Marston's Revisionist Beers

Well its been a month since my last post on here but that doesn't mean I haven't been drinking. I have but I haven't had many new beers or time to post them on here for that matter. I am still a little bit slow after my stroke, witch was just over a year ago but anyway I am going to have a go now.

Well my camera with most of my photos on not here, I have left it at my mothers, so for now it will have to be what I have with my phone or other camera. I know, I will cover the newer Tesco beers, well the ones I have had, though I had done these.

Marston's (Tesco), Revisionist Craft Lager from England

Marston's (Tesco), Revisionist Craft Lager, England Marston's (Tesco), Revisionist Craft Lager, England

5.0% golden lager colour with a thin head, aroma and taste pretty much like a lager should be, well what the British call a lager anyway.

Marston's (Tesco), Revisionist Hefeweizen Wheat Beer from England

Marston's (Tesco), Revisionist Hefeweizen Wheat Beer, England Marston's (Tesco), Revisionist Hefeweizen Wheat Beer, England

4.8% slightly cloudy yellow with a nice head, slightly bitter but not a bad wheat beer, particularly as it is made in England.
