January is over. Welcome February! And what a way to kick off the month with what’s probably my favourite beer, Red Duck Goldern Dragon (Day 32).
Day 33. Red Duck – Amber Ale. Can probably sit in a dark pub somewhere and drink this for a few hours.
Day 34. Temple Brewery – Saison. Not great but slight spice.
Day 35. Red Duck – The Ox. Big, bold and full of alcohol….
Day 36 . Red Duck – Belgian Vanilla Porter. Not really what I expected. Vanilla was very subtle.
Day 37. Forrest – Silvertop. Pretty good on a hot day. Goes down better when chilled.
Day 38. Forrest – Pale Ale. Standard Pale Ale. Nothing special, nothing bad.
Day 39. Bridge Road – India Saison. Limited release AND a saison I like. Win.
Day 40. Forest – Stout. Better than I remember. Don’t serve this one to cold. Needs to warm a bit to get the hidden flavour.
Day 41. Forest – Irish Red, tasty but basic.
Day 42. Williams – Pale Ale, not good.
Day 43. Red Hill – Scotch Ale, mmm this is good.
Day 44. Matilda Bay – Dogbolter, good beer but over hyped.
Day 45. Red Hill – Temptation, dry and hides the (8%) alcohol.
Day 46. Red Hill – Wheat Beer, hoppy style wheat beer.
Day 47. Red Hill – Golden Ale, easy to drink but not great.
Day 48. Mountain Goat – Rare Breed India Pale Ale, really good IPA.
Day 49. Mountain Goat – Rare Breed Rye IPA, really hoppy IPA and good malts.
Day 50. Mountain Goat – Hightail Ale. Original MG and for a very good reason.
Day 51. Thunder Road – Brunswick Bitter. An easy to drink lager, but nothing more.
Day 52. Mountain Goat – Steam Ale. An ale that’s almost like a lager only better.
Day 53. Feral – Hop Hog IPA. One amazing IPA. Bloody good.
Day 54. Mad Brewers – Hoppy Hefe. Another big hop beer plus it’s a strong one at 7%.
Day 55. Feral – Golden Ace. Still struggling to describe this one. Go and try it.
Day 56. Prickly Moses – Farmhouse Ale. Good complex beer, maybe too much yeast.
Day 57. New Norcia – Abbey Ale. I quite liked this for what it was, a strong-ish ale.
Day 58. Prickly Moses – Otway Pilsner. Good but nothing special.
Day 59. True South – Clock Tower IPA. A LOT of hops in this. Very bitter, very good.
Day 60. Prickly Moses – Otway Ale. A malt style session beer.
