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).

Beers from last night

These are the beers I had last night around Dave and Claire's, Dave now likes the really strongly hopped beers, I can drink them but they are not a favorite. Even though I had these last night some of the photos are older. One of the beers though was very good see if you can work out which one it was.

Williams Brothers, Rubus Grapefruit IPA from Scotland

Williams Brothers, Rubus Grapefruit IPA, Scotland

5.5% gold in colour with a nice head, the aroma was of fruit and the taste was definitely grapefruit, not good.

Aldi, The Hop Foundry Triple Hopped Pale Ale from England

Aldi, The Hop Foundry Triple Hopped Pale Ale, England

4.0% gold in colour with a nice head, some hops in the aroma and plenty of hops in the taste.

BrewDog, Punk IPA from Scotland

BrewDog, Punk IPA, Scotland

5.6% (the original photo of the bottle is 6.0%) gold in colour with next to no head, all I got was hops, in the aroma and taste, as before I do not like this.

BrewDog, Dead Pony Club from Scotland

BrewDog, Dead Pony Club, Scotland

3.8% pale red in colour with a poor head, hops and far to much hops, it says californian pale ale, it should stay there. It is not as bad as the first tasting in 2014, the hops have come down quite q bit.

Affligem, Blond from Belgium

Affligem, Blond, Belgium Affligem, Blond, Belgium

6.8% abbey blond, gold in colour with a good head, hop aroma, although the commercial description says "low on bitterness" I found it to be bitter with a hoppy taste  but still very good.
