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).

The Cans from February 2018

Not so many Cans this month but I do have a quite a few in the fridge for next month, trouble is these newish fancy small cans are not always that good. Anyway theses three are all proper size cans, lets see what I though, oh and there are some comparisons.

Duff Beer from Germany

This is not the first Duff Beer I have had, so I will put both of them on here. The first photo is the new one the second is the older one.

Duff Beer, Germany Week 42 - An52 Beers, Duff Beer UG, The Legendary Duff Beer, Germany

The first one, 4.9% gold in colour with a thin head, a very ordinary slightly watery lager.

The second one in the proper can, 4.9% yellow as Homer with a head as thin as Homer's hair, weak malt aroma and taste, unlike the Simpson's this beer is poor.

Arrogant Brewing, Arrogant Bastard Ale from the USA

Another one where I have had two similar beers although one was smoked, I will do them as above.

Arrogant Brewing, Arrogant Bastard Ale, USA Week 29-52 Beers, Stone Brewing Co, Oaked Arrogant Bastard Ale, USA

The first one, 7.2% hazy brown in colour with a good head, sweet malt aroma and a very bitter but nice taste.

The second one, 7.2% poor head, roasted malt aroma, nice hops malt and slight taste of the oak, the best beer from the USA I have had to date.

Devil's Canyon, Deadicated from the USA

Devil's Canyon, Deadicated, USA

5.4% deep amber in colour with a thin head, sweet malt aroma and a toffee malt bitter taste, not bad at all.

Cans of Beer from January 2018

For an early dark month there were still plenty of new beer to try and as small little cans (at the same price as big cans) are all the rage, I have had to try a few of them. I have had a few of these types of beer over the last year but these were all close together.  I still have some more to try but that will have to be in March
