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).

7.2% pale cloudy amber in colour with a thin head, a hoppy aroma and a bitter hoppy taste, sorry not very good.

Great Heck, Shankar IPA from England

5.9% pale gold in colour with a poor head, fruity hop aroma, very hoppy taste, not at all good.

7.2 deep gold in colour with a good head, sweet hoppy aroma, it as quite a hoppy taste but not too bad.
