2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours cloudy orange with two fingers of off-white head. Aroma of garlic, bread, light citrus, malt. Taste is mild sweet with a lingering bitter finish that’s got a sweet touch to it. The garlic? Mouth feels like garlic after a sip... Body is light and smooth with soft carbonation. Not too shabby actually, at least not with food heavy on garlic.

Good palate and appearance. Somewhere in there is a crisp, dry beer which is at worst drinkable. The garlic aroma is at first interesting but soon becomes overwhelming and nauseating.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the Garlic Farm on the Isle of Wight. Pours out in a hazy amber-golden colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of .....well, garlic. Garlic with some sour bready hints. Taste of garlic, garlic paste, acid, wheat and bread. Finishes off like sour garlic. Little bit thin. Little bit "shaking the body through". Very special. Wouldn’t buy it again and didn’t really enjoy it, but it is was it is called. Well-made.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Got that one at the Garlic Farm where the garlic seems to be from. Well, that beer is...garlic. The nose is crazily garlic and nothing else. The taste is more compliacted and versatile with fine sour moments of berries and a bit of lambic. Tough to rate that one. But it is definitely something special.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
500ml bottle @ the Fourth Shrewsbury Bottle Share April 2014, courtesy of Luc. Sounds wrong, looks wrong, tastes wrong. This is basically liquid garlic bread. As soon as the pouring began the aroma was quite overpowering. I like garlic as much as the next man, but this is too much. Good for a novelty but that’s it.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle bought by Luc to the fourth Shrewsbury bottle swap on 28th April 2014: my beer of the night. There was even a garlic bulb in the bottle, as if you couldn’t tell it was a garlic flavoured beer! Mid-brown with no real head to mention, it smells and tastes of garlic: I like garlic. Not sure I could have had a whole bottle without some sort of food (chips would have been fine), but my large pour enabled me to know it does what it says on the label: it’s a garlic beer.

Bottle from Fenwick, Newcastle. Cloudy orange-amber coloured with a strong aroma of garlic. It has a sour spicy fruity flavour with malt notes, biscuit and pretty strong garlic on the finish.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nov 2012 - bottle. Garlic smell. Definite garlic taste followed by mild malty beer. A bit like drinking the water from broth or a thin stock. Not terrible, but not in any way enjoyable either. I’m a fan of garlic and so I could drink a fair bit, but gave up due to boredom.

very good for cooking or for drink with hot curries or even steaks. I drank part in a glass and the rest went to the pan with angus burguers and was awesome!
