Day 153. Knappstine – Reserve Lager. Not good. Better than the mainstream, but not by much.
Day 154. Two Birds – Sunset Red Ale. Good, well balance beer. Sweetness and malt flavour to match.
Day 155. James Squire – Nine Tales (Amber Ale). Sweet, not great balanced and not enough body.
Day 156. Kooinda – American Pale Ale. Hoppy pale ale, just what you expect.
Day 157. 4 Pines – Roggenbier. Strange malt/rye flavour. Okay sort of dark beer.
Day 158. Mountain Goat / Moon Dog / Matilda Bay – Abbey Collabey Imperial Stout. A really well balanced with lots of good flavours.
Day 159. Cavalier – Brown. Nice good beer but slightly simple.
Day 160. Mountain Goat – Surefoot Stout with Seven Seed Coffee Beans. Exactly what I was expecting. Good stout with good coffee, great.
Day 161. 4 Pines – Kolsch. Light and crisp. Good taste for a session beer.
Day 162. Burleigh Brewery – 28 Pale Ale. Old style pale ale, and fantastic smooth beer.
Day 163. 4 Pines – Stout. Lots of flavour, a little overwhelming.
Day 164. Bridge Road & Mekkeller – Dark Harvest. Dark chocolate and smoky, with big wet hops.
Day 165. Mountain Goat – Skipping Girl Summer Ale. Light and slight fruit taste.
Day 166. Red Hill – Diamond Jubilee British IPA. English ale, just the way it’s meant to be.
Day 167. 2 Brothers – Growler. Good malt flavour, but not very complex.
Day 168. Burleigh Bitter – My Wife’s Bitter. Really good bitter.
Day 169. Mornington – Imperial Amber. Crazy amber ale. Lots going on here.
Day 170. Moon Dog – Henry Ford’s Girthsome Fjord. A beer with everything. Too much going on.
Day 171. True South – Pale Ale. An American style pale ale that’s done well.
Day 172. 4 Pines – Beetroot Belgian Ale. Strange, not my thing.
Day 173. Seven Sheds – Black Elephant. Very dark beer. Good to warm you up.
Day 174. Mash Brewery – Koffee Stout. Needs to warm a bit, then lots of coffee. Not much else.
Day 175. Hawthorn – Amber Ale. Simple ale.
Day 176. Mash Brewery – Pale Ale. If this was just a little less sweet it would be fantastic.
Day 177. Mash Brewery – Rye The Hop Not?. A malt driven rye ESB. Quite good.
Day 178. Cavalier – Pale. Nothing that blows you away, but a good beer.
Day 179. William Bull – Red Angus Pilsner. Not great.
