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).

Weekends Beers Two, Sunday

Well following on from Saturday here are Sundays new beers.

Camerons, Castle Eden Ale from England

Camerons, Castle Eden Ale, England

4.2% pale amber with a good head, some fruitiness in the aroma, an average bitter beer but not bad. Also it is one that I thought I had done but apparently not, this is one of the first beers I used to drink, when the Castle Eden brewery still existed.

Black Hill, Bottom Busty from England

Black Hill, Bottom Busty, England

3.9% black in colour with a good head, it had the aroma and taste of a nice stout although it is a Ruby Ale. Better than the one below.

Allendale, Black Grouse from England

Allendale, Black Grouse, England

4.0% black in colour with a good head, sweet aroma with a bitter taste.  Not as good as the one above.

6.1% amber colour with a thin head, sweet toffee aroma with a nice hoppy taste.
1907 was the date of the first Isle of Man Tourist Trophy, a motorbike bike race, the best known motorbike bike races in the world. I know because I have been twenty times, from the 70s to the 90s, unfortunately I can no longer afford to get back there.
