What they say: “Back Of The Net from Greene King is the perfect, easy drinking beer as the Amarillo and citra hops create a refreshing beer with an intense citrus zing”
This followed on from Purple Reign and whilst I didn’t enjoy it as much – hardly surprising given the description – it went down well. Again, the occasion and circumstances may have played a part! 4.1% A.B.V.
The White Horse, Rottingdean, East Sussex. June 2016
What they say: “A majestic floral and fruity ale, brewed to mark the Queen’s 90th Birthday”
Not a description that would normally excite me but it was very enjoyable – although maybe that fact that it was a warm evening after a challenging day helped – possibly anything would have gone down well! 4.2% A.B.V.
The White Horse, Rottingdean, East Sussex. June 2016.
What they say: “A refreshing blonde ale with a fruity springtime flavour and a touch of citrus flowers and rich peppery spice on the aroma”
Another one from Aldi and yep, a bit too light, fruity and flowery for me but a nice summer ale I guess. 3.9% A.B.V. June 2016.
What they say: “The brewery’s flagship beer. Well rounded, ruby red ale with a distinctive, tight creamy head. A good balance of malt, hops and bitterness.”
It was a Cameron’s beer that got me in to drinking real ale – back in 2007 in Robin Hood’s Bay. It wasn’t this one sadly, but this rich dark red beer was very enjoyable nonetheless 4.0% A.B.V. June 2016.
What they say: “A rich dark stout with a strong roasted malt flavour and a long, smooth aftertaste. Suitable for vegans”
Not my first choice in ale but I do enjoy a nice stout sometimes. This was inoffensive and pleasant enough but not particularly memorable for me – I’ve enjoyed others more. 4.5% A.B.V
