It’s refreshing but it has that horrible thing where it tastes like shit malty beer by the time it hits the back of your tongue, the sourness doesn’t last at all. Sadly not impressed.
Fairly tipsy already but really want to crack open my can of Unhuman open. Good idea / bad idea?
I’m on the Hop City now… again, sadly underwhelmed, just had a prettt spicy stir fry but it’s not cutting through at all… hmm…
I found this diminished with large gulps. I think there are some beers that really lack impact if sipped but kick in when you really pour it down your throat. Iona Big Wave is the only other example I have to hand, but it’s a thing for me.
I really like their stuff, especially Platform C and Chew Chew. Just the Ticket is a lovely light beer too, perfect for summer day drinking.
by the time I had it the other night I was pretty steamin’ and do feel like maybe I didn’t appreciate it a bit as a much… buuuuut I think it might just genuinely not be as good as v13 which I had the same night
I already know I don’t really like this but I also know I’ll buy it as soon as I see it.
If you do you’ll be surprised by how good it is (if you like nippy beers)
It’ll be logged here when I find it.
Didn’t go for it in the end, probably a good thing cos I crashed dead early with half a bottle of something else.
Putting off drinking it on a work night, and with plans probably a couple of weeks before it’s a good idea to crack it open. Being daft and overthinking the freshness probably
It had sold out at hop city too so didn’t get to try it
I thought it tasted like spiked Lemon Fanta. I loved it.
Had Human / Unhuman last night, liked both but didn’t love either, and didn’t really see what the Unhuman had over the Human… Followed it with a To Ol DIPA Underground and think I preferred to either of them.
Also had Siren Bourbon Milkshake which is an odd one, tasted kind of like super sweet tawny port. And a Mikkeller Breakfast Vanilla Shake thing which was lovely.
On the DEYA Steady Rolling Man… I mean, it’s good, but I think I paid nearly £5 for it and it was limited to one per customer… it is definitely not that good.
Newcastle/Leeds frequenting beer wankers, im on tour in your towns this weekend, where should I go to he a beer wanker? I’ll be at head of steam in town for Newcastle (not sure where I’m staying yet mind) and Hyde Park for Leeds.
Beer Wanker #799
Brudenell Social Club has really good beer these days, still cheaper than anywhere else too.
For somewhere more beer focussed the short walk to city centre is your best bet, Top 3: North Bar, Friends of Ham, Bundobust.
Second all of @jardin.
Don’t really know that much up Hyde Park but in the centre there is also
-Whitlocks ( this and duck and drake are more ‘traditonal’ pubs but highly recommend it)
-Tall Boys ( mainly a bottle shop but can sit in)
-Northern monk refectory (might have some stuff leftover from hop city)
-little leeds beerhouse (another bottle shop that I think you can sit in)
-headrow house (though pretty expensive)
-duck and drake
There’s loads actually, belgrave is good if it’s sunny, all the leeds brewery pubs are decent.
Sela and Wax bar near North bar are ok also.
Theres also the north brewery tap.
Eat at bundobust too, it’s the best.
Aye am aware brude has always had decent stuff on for cheap, that place really amazed me, maybe I’ll walk round to watch football if we get there early enough.
By the looks of it, Hyde park book club (where I’m playing) has a wee bottle shop too?
Hyde Park Book Club has some beer, mainly the North Brewing stuff, but it’s more of a sit in place I imagine and the prices reflect that. There’s a decent bottle shop on Cardigan Road next to co-op, can’t remember the name though, used to be Village Video.
I forgot a strong contender in the city centre: Turks Head. Nice bar. Always impressive draught list, around 15 taps. It’s next door to Whitelocks but more craft focussed. Outside seating too.
do you mean by sit in prices it’s more expensive?
