  • Good Nature Brewing Blonde
    rated 4.2 6 years ago

    Aroma: 10 | Appearance: 8 | Mouthfeel: 8 | Flavor: 8 | Overall: 8

    This is gobs flagship ale very drinkable and thirst quenching. It pairs well with many foods. A great afternoon quaff. Matt and Carrie have produced a high quality ale consistently for a number of years.

  • Corsendonk Christmas Ale
    rated 4.1 10 years ago

    Aroma: 8 | Appearance: 9 | Mouthfeel: 8 | Flavor: 8 | Overall: 8

    A friend gave this to me. It poured a medium brown with a thick white head heavy lacing and good legs. The aroma was of malt with hints of spice. Mild carbonation yielded mild mouth feel. The balance was outstanding. Even at 8% the alcohol balanced well. My wife and I paired this with a roast of beef and veg using the ale as the starch. It was amazing.

    I thought this was pretty good reminded a bit of Herman Joseph that Coors made in the 70's and 80's not as good but close. I liked the balance very drinkable. It goes with a number of foods. not a bad addition to the Coors line.

    This is a good summer refresher. Is it a true beer? no but it is tasty. Straw color with white head sweet like pop Not a session drink One is fine. I like it wit a ploughmans or fish and chips. It adds zip to basic food.

  • Bulmers Pear Cider

    Aroma: 6 | Appearance: 7 | Mouthfeel: 6 | Flavor: 5 | Overall: 6

    Perry is always a bit of a disappointment because the flavor is so mild. Not bad but a bit of a let down. I tried this in London a couple of years ago. I just found my notes. Gold with moderate carbonation. Very mild pear flavor Reminds me of Champagne. Goes well with a curry.
