Day 275. Red Duck – The Bear Wild Dark Honey Braggot. Big flavour and a fair amount of spice to help with the sweet mead side of the beer.
Day 276. Bowral Brewing – Pigs Fly Pilsner. Sort of good flavour let down by a bad finish.
Day 277. Temple – Smoked Weizen. Okay sort of smoke beer, if you like wheat.
Day 278. Red Duck – Smells Like A Pony Buckwheat Braggot. Huge amount going on here, sweet, rich wheat, and a bit of burn.
Day 279. Thunder Road – God’s Lager. Quite okay for a lager, but not a pils.
Day 280. Red Duck – Ugly Duckling Braggot. Extreme sweetness and lots of alcohol makes this a bit tough to get though.
Day 281. Red Duck / Kissmeyer Beers – Gnaume Belgian Lambic Golden Ale. Like a big spicy sasion, but it’s not. Creamy and tart flavour.
Day 282. Red Duck / Kissmeyer Beers -Hop Bach Symphony #1 Double IPA. Lots of hop flavour without the big bitterness. Malt backing makes this very good.
Day 283. Red Duck / Kissmeyer Beers – Rebellion Strong Pale Ale. Huge pale ale with a kick. Pity the flavour doesn’t stick around.
Day 284. Red Duck / Beer Here – Ragnarok “The End of The World”. Quad Belgian ale with a bit of chilli. Too much going on to really enjoy.
Day 285. Red Duck – Gruiter 15th Century Dark Sour Ale. Sour. Like a sour candy that’s been turned into liquid, and then more sour.
Day 286. Red Duck – RA #2 Imperial Egyptian Bread Beer. Another sour beer but with a hint of citrus to make it a bit easier to drink.
Day 287. Broo – Premium Lager. Basic and only slightly better than the mass produced stuff.
Day 288. True South – Bock. Easy to drink with flavour that lasts, just not much of it.
Day 289. Red Duck – Long Shot Chocolate Coffee Porter. Very good flavours but it fade a bit too quick.
Day 290. Little Brewing – Mad Abbot Dubbel. Good dark flavours with lots of subtle flavours.
Day 291. Little Brewing – Mad Abbot Tripel. Plenty of kick and a bit too many different flavours.
Day 292. Little Creatures – Pale Ale. Easy to drink and enjoyable pale, but not the best after taste.
Day 293. Little Creatures – Bright Ale. Soft and smooth flavours that makes this THE drink to have in summer when you don’t want a lager.
Day 294. Little Creatures – Original Pilsner. Clean style with straw/grass hints. Quite good.
Day 295. Arvo – Brew 34. Easy to drink, not much flavour, very slight creamy finish.
Day 296. Arvo – Brew 51. A beer that you can skull and not much else.
Day 297. James Squire – Stow Away IPA. Very basic IPA with bad chemical tastes.
Day 298. Little Creatures – Day of the Long Shadow. Great dark spiced ale that gets better once warmed a little.
Day 299. Bridge Road Brewers -Saison Noir. A dark saison that has a lot of good flavours. Very complex.
Day 300. Mountain Goat – Triple Hightail. Big sweet flavours and ending bitterness. Enjoyable.
Day 301. La Sirene – Saison. Very soft and slight sour saison.
Day 302. Hargreaves Hill – Yarra Valley Pilsner. Clean and easy to drink with a bit of straw flavour.
Day 303. La Sirene – Wild Saison. The best saison I’ve ever had. Lots of fruit, soft, refreshing and balanced exceptionally well.
Day 304. Bone Yard – Golden Ale. Very hoppy and bitter for a golden ale.
Day 305. 3 Ravens – Double Ale Noir. An extremely complex beer. Lots of good subtle flavours coming in and out which changes as the beer warms.
