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).

Third week in 2017

Here are the beers I had over the third week in 2017 not all new but one that I haven't had since 2008 and its in a new bottle. The other two have names that have been used before, although they are new beers. So I will do something new and show the other, original beers as well

Marston's, Old Empire IPA from England

5.7%, pale amber colour with a nice head, fruit aroma, taste is fruity, hoppy and bitter, not too bad. The old photos from 2008 are here.

4.3% deep gold in colour with a poor head, hop aroma but the taste was ok as the hops were not that bad. The original one is below.
