Kent Craft Beer Review: Southern Cross from G2 Brewery

Kent Craft Beer Review: Southern Cross from G2 Brewery real ale pump clip
Welcome to the Shed. I am even-star and this is The Beer in Review. Today's Kent craft beer review is for Southern Cross from G2 Brewery.

Share It!

Southern Cross is a bright yellow beer. Up front a very interesting numbing herbalness. Quite bitter and strong. At the back a kind of mellow apple flavour. Pleasant but not quaffable. Next day had totally mellowed into a very quaffable apricot finish. Much sweeter.

This was going to be an episode of Cask Ale Quicky Craft Beer Review on my YouTube channel but I have decided to rethink the format. There have been too many beers for me to realistically keep up with video reviews for them all. In the meantime check out my latest live beer review!

Welcome to the Shed. I am even-star and this is The Beer in Review. Today's Derbyshire craft beer review is for Tangerine Dream from Derby Brewing Co.

Share It!

Tangerine Dream is an amber beer. Very clear. Up front not a huge amount of flavour. Sweetish and definitely a orange like tang. In the middle a little more bitter but in the end disappointing. Wishy washy.

London Craft Beer Review: Big Bang from Craft Academy

London Craft Beer Review: Big Bang from Craft Academy bottle
Welcome to the Shed. I am even-star and this is The Beer in Review. Today's London craft beer review is for Big Bang from Craft Academy.

Share It!

Big Bang IPA is a honey coloured ipa. Aromas of apple and elderflower. Full bodied and bitter up front but quickly mellows into a sweeter caramelised flavour. Lots of lime and something very aromatically floral like jasmine or orange blossom.

I will be doing a video review of Craft Academy beer in May. Craft Academy is a brewing apprenticeship program that is sponsored by Greene King. One of the apprentices sent me beer to review!

Oddly I had this one at a Greene King pub up the road and I would have to say that Greene King definitely needs to bring in new blood. Not just to up their game on beer but also on beer selection at their pubs. This was refreshing!

Somerset Craft Beer Review: Atlantic from Cottage Brewing Co

Welcome to the Shed. I am even-star and this is The Beer in Review. Today's Somerset craft beer review is for Atlantic from Cottage Brewing Co.

Share It!

Atlantic is a brown beer. Very interesting up front. Bitter but with some sweet spices like cinnamon clove and cardamom. This turns into a fruity coffee bitter and finishes again with some of those sweet spices mixed with a bit of bitter orange.

Welcome to the Shed. I am even-star and this is The Beer in Review. Today's Somerset craft beer review is for Old Slug Porter from RCH.

Share It!

Old Slug is a dark brown Porter. Up front very fruity and slightly sour. Cherry and plum flavours. In the middle there is more of a mellow coffee flavour. Not astringent at all and well balanced between a sweet and sour fruitiness and bitter coffee and molasses.

Essex Craft Beer Review: Gold from Brentwood Brewing Company

Welcome to the Shed. I am even-star and this is The Beer in Review. Today's Essex craft beer review is for Gold from Brentwood Brewing Company.

Share It!

Brentwood Gold is a semi-cloudy gold ale. Omg so juicy citrus and subtly floral. Up front lavender and grapefruit. At the back a quiet funky dankness going on. Almost a crazy IPA but not quite citrus enough. More apple and plum.

Somerset Craft Beer Review: Rebellion from Cottage Brewing

Somerset Craft Beer Review: Rebellion from Cottage Brewing real ale pump clip
Welcome to the Shed. I am even-star and this is The Beer in Review. Today's Somerset craft beer review is for Rebellion from Cottage Brewing.

Share It!

Rebellion is a dark red brown ale. Up front malty and nutty astringent bitter of walnut pecan and maple. In the middle a softer fruity flavour of strawberry. Finishes quite toasty and malty with a hint of caramel. Really good strong bitter character. Had this the next day and this had really mellowed into and lovely rich fruity beer.
