Day 183. Last Drop – Dunkelweizen. Dark wheat with a bit of body.
Day 184. St Peters – Spruced Up Ale. Was never going to be good. But has got better with age.
Day 185. Mildura Brewery – Mallee Bull Strong Ale. Okay ale with a good kick to it.
Day 186. Mildura Brewery – Honey Wheat. Not great, but slight sweet.
Day 187. Sweetwater – Golden Bitter. Like an average bitter with honey.
Day 188. 2 Brothers – Bloody Oak. Like liquid barley sugar with a big alcohol kick.
Day 189. 4 Pines – Hefeweizen. Slight banana flavour to this average wheat.
Day 190. Temple & Weihenstephan – Unifikator. Great weizenbock. Banana and brandy with bits of spice.
Day 191. Cavalier – Double IPA. Really good IPA with smoke, malt and fruit flavours.
Day 192. Black Heart – American Brown Ale. Malt and caramel, but a rough finish.
Day 193. 4 Pines – Czech Pilsner. Lots of hop and quite refreshing.
Day 194. Old Salt – Sea Breeze Refreshing Ale. Big fruit and very refreshing. A quality beer.
Day 195. Moo Brew – Stout 2011. Dark big malt and richness. But let down by a big gritty body.
Day 196. Moo Brew – Stout 2012. Very sweet and chocolate flavour. Clean, but missing a bit of body.
Day 197. Black Heart – English Pale Ale. Good pale ale.
Day 198. Black Heart – Weizen. Lots going on, but not a good wheat beer.
Day 199. Mildura Brewery – Storm Pale Ale. Really impressive Pale Ale.
Day 200. Mountain Goat – Seedy Goat Coffee IPA with Galley Hop Flowers. Lots of bitterness, not much coffee flavour.
Day 201. Mornington – Imperial IPA. Big flavours overpowered by ‘burnt’ alcohol flavour.
Day 202. Mountain Goat – Top Paddock. Red Saison that swaps flavour from spice to sour, then back and forth.
Day 203. Bellarine – The Heads Ale. Slight banana flavour, okay overall.
Day 204. Coopers – Thomas Cooper’s Selection Celebration Ale. Lots of flavours in this, but not balanced enough to enjoy.
Day 205. Mildura – Stefano’s Pilsner. Nice simple flavour. Could be great for a session beer.
Day 206. John Boston – Premium Lager. Pretty basic lager.
Day 207. Mountain Goat – Hip Hip Hooray IPA. LOTS of bitterness to this. Heaps of hops here.
Day 208. Bellarine – Bellarine Bitter. Not good at all. Might of got a bad/off one.
Day 209. McLaren Vale – India Pale Ale. Quite nice and well balanced.
Day 210. Endeavour 2011 – Reserve Amber Ale. Good malts but way to much bubbles.
Day 211. Bellarine – Mussel Stout. Burnt and no body. Not great.
Day 212. Wicked Elf – Pale Ale. Lots of fruit and malt. Good non-bitter pale ale.
