I am a fan of many of the Whychwood beers and this one was lovely. I got two bottles of BeeWyched Honey'd Ale, one for my wife (she tried it first) and then I had one later in the week. There is a lot of grapefruit and I found it quite spicy and malty as well as the honey sweetness.
This is a very pleasant beer and worthy of any occasion.
I found another Fullers beer I had not tasted before so I snapped it up. This Chiswick Bitter was lovely as most Fullers beers are. Malt and floral hops on the nose. There was a nice malty base complemented by a lingering bitterness. A very good Bitter I thought. It is also a low ABV of 3.5% making it a fantastic refreshing session beer that will not leave you falling on your face.
I got back from Cork today and unfortunately the only beer I had was Murphys. When I was in the city I went to Abbots Ale house but the bar was not open in the afternoon so I got a few beers to bring home. This Pere Jaques is not one of them however as I got this at Drinkstore in Dublin a few weeks back. It is made by Goose Island. It is a Belgian style dubbel beer and even though it is from the US, it might as well have been made in Belgium. Well done Goose Island on a truly outstanding beer.
This is a very complex beer, full of malt and prune sweetness offset by bittering hops and plenty of alcohol warming the back of your throat without being too overpowering. This is 8% so pretty strong but it does not feel like it is 8% making it easy to drink.
