Wiper and True – Pale Ale Australia – 5.7%

This beer from Wiper and True is called Pale Ale Australia at 5.7%. Immediately on de-capping, an aroma blast of oranges melons and citrus punches you in the nose. The pour is a nice deep orange colour with solid carbonation. Utterly refreshing, a fruity and full bodied beast of an ale! a clear focus on pale ale malts, however the fruity backbone hides any hint of malt presence, but strangely and thankfully, isn’t that sweet at all! A great level of pith like bittering lingers the full tongue width. Thoroughly enjoyable beer.

Hogsback Brewery Co – All 4 One – 4.5%

From The Great British Brewing Co on behalf of Aldi comes an ale from from the Hogsback Brewery Co. Named All 4 One at 4.5%, this is a modern look at bottled lager featuring 4 ‘mysterious’ hops and honey additions. De-capping gives a bready citrus and grass aroma. Surprisingly quite pleasant. The pour is headless and the beer body is mildly carbonated. The aroma is also sweet and malty as it warms and airs a bit. A very clear golden colour in appearance and fairly clean tasting with a hint of bittering. Mouthfeel is fairly thick and pleasant. Aftertaste is surprisingly sweet and grassy. Pleasant and perhaps a little oversweet for a lager, but an interesting take on the usual generic supermarket beer.

Westvleteren – Blond – 5.8%

From the Trappist brewery of Westvleteren Abdij St. Sixtus comes Westvleteren Blond at 5.8% What an interesting ale. Decapping gives a superb fragrant belgian hoppy aroma with fruity yeasty undertones, almost a bit fusty and dank. The pour gives a fluffy white heady froth with brown hints and great retention which is very thick and inviting. The appearance is straw blonde with better than average carbonation with a particle sediment snow globe effect. The beer is full bodied with a sweet tone about it and a good belgian hop presence which is not overwhelming. The most interesting aspect to this beer is the yeasty aftertaste. A subtle bitterness compliments a pith and dank citrus presence with elements of spice and pepper. This later lends to the aroma of the beer as it warms. Overall quite spectacular!

Beavertown – Lupuloid IPA – 6.7%

From the Beavertown Brewery comes a new core IPA called Lupuloid IPA at 6.7%. De-canning gives a blast of an aromatic citrusy floral aroma. The pour generates a good head with nice retention and white froth. The appearance is a straw like pale. The taste has an almost sweet citrus presence with little in the way of malt coming through. A very clean and refined brew with an average bitter aftertaste for an IPA. The mouthfeel is full and gratifying with an above average carbonation. An excellent go-to british IPA with an American influence. Another excellent Beavertown brew!

Sixpoint – Resin DIPA – 9.1%

From the Sixpoint Brewery in the U.S comes Resin at 9.1%. Popping the cap on the can gives a dancing aroma of intense citrus and sweets. So sweet! you can almost see the resinous hop particles trailing from the can. Amazing. On the pour the hop aroma literally gushes and rolls out to assault the senses with intense citrus and boiled orange sweet aromatics. The appearance is malty amber with an average carbonation profile, head generates from decent to nothing. The body is thick caramel and quite engulfing, the taste is really quite sweet like golden syrup and then slowly drops away to a strong building bitterness. An end of the night, end of the world beer. This ale completely obliterates your taste palate for hours. Absolutely and wonderfully amazing.

Howling Hops – Running Beer Brown Ale – 4.7%

From the Howling Hops Brewery comes Running Beer Brown Ale at 4.0%. De-capping the bottle gives an aroma not too dissimilar to a black IPA, but with more toffee notes. Good presence of citrus orange aroma and malty goodness. The head foams and quickly disperses before the eyes. Carbonation is slightly above average and the body of the beer is nothing spectacular for a brown ale. The beer finish ends up being slightly tart and lacks the sweetness to carry it through. Nice idea, but it doesn’t quite work for me.
