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 2,000 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).
My email is ralphgant@sky.com.

Lots of new beers

I have been very lucky over the last couple of weeks, and have amassed quite a few new beers, some I have found myself and several supplied by friends, so my thanks go to Jon, Paul and Tony. I now have so many beers it will take some time to review them all here.
To start here is one from last Saturday.

McMullen, Hertford Castle from England
5.0% gold colour with a thin head, very little aroma, slight taste of Stilton cheese (according to Jonathan I could not place it).

Many thanks to Paul Addams for the beer.

Been Busy

I have been very busy with all these holidays and weddings and stuff but here are last weekends beers.

One that I liked and one that I will not be buying again anytime soon.

Springhead, The Leveller from England
4.8% dark red colour with a thin head, chocolate aroma, bitter chocolate and treacle toffee taste, not to my taste.  It was Brewed in the style of Belgian trappist ales, well I didn't like it.

And Wadworth, Bishops Tipple from England.
5.5% amber colour with a thin head, nice fruity aroma, bitter grapefruit taste, much better but it seams to have lost 1.0% from its strength.
