I'm Dreaming of a Black Christmas....

Advantages: Dark, dangerous and tasty.
Disadvantages: Expensive and too strong for some.

There is one really good reason why I like winter. It isn't the cold weather, the snow or the fact that Christmas is approaching at a rate that doesn't agree with my bank balance (or fit in with pay day either for that matter). The reason I like winter ...

Review of Black Christmas

One Pint of Two Pints!

Advantages: Hoppy, dry and quite well balanced. A good example of a Bitter beer.
Disadvantages: Not the best in the world.

...It’s kind of fitting that my last review of Cropton Brewery’s products should be of their first beer! Before I write a review of the brewery and the tour itself (currently being written) I thought I’d complete my series of reviews with my opinion on Two ...

Review of Pale Rider

Pint Mugs at Three O'clock!

Advantages: Tasty Kentish beer with a good balanced flavour of hops and malt.
Disadvantages: Has to be kept well to be good. A bit too easy to find.

After reviewing Shepherd Neame’s wonderful Bishops Finger I was reminded that I really ought to give one of their other famous brews a mention. Here is my opinion on Spitfire, another Premium Ale from the Kent brewer. ~~~THE BREWERY. A long time ag ...
