Bavaria 0.0 Original 2.1  
Bavaria Brouwerij (Netherlands) Lieshout, Netherlands
Canned, 330ml from Tesco in Banbury, Oxon. Gold with fizzed head. Unfortunately driving all day so this was the only option. Of the zero alcohol beers I have tried this is possibly as good as it gets, malty, reasonably dry. Wouldn't be an obvious choice but if needs must.

Eight Arch Layer Cake 3.8  
Eight Arch Wimborne, Dorset
On tap at Craft Beer Co, Brighton on our birthday week, Saturday 18th November 2017 just prior to gig by Lost Horizons at The Rialto Theatre. Pours murky dark brown with a slim filmy beige head. Juicy with a mid bitterness a touch of cocoa powder and a steady roasty touch throughout. Aroma is a little tame or muted perhaps but not detracting from what is a very decent beer. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8

Wylam Jakehead IPA 3.8  
Wylam Newcastle upon Tyne , Tyne & Wear
Bottle at The Curry Leaf Café, Brighton, Saturday 18th November 2017 on our Birthday week. Pours mid to dark amber with a large off white head. A most beautiful enjoyable IPA and works perfectly with my Tandoori, fruity with some orange peel, a little pithy but then resin and pine also. Excellent beer. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8

Founders Green Zebra 2.6

Smell of some watermelon. Citrus in flavor. Sour aftertaste that fills the upper and front part of the mouth to a weak moment. Drinkable beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Firestone Walker / Beavertown West Side Beavo 4.0  
Incredibly good fruity fragrance. Celestial good taste of sweetness, fruity and a little bloom. Really good bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth for a long time. Good beer but losing tastes towards the end. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Austin Eastciders Hopped Cider 2.9  
Austin Eastciders Austin, Texas
Crisp, ever so slightly hazy golden coloured body with a peach-ish glow and a very thin, super-fast-dying pure white head. Aroma of funk, skunk, resin, grain and a dash of pure caster sugar - interesting throughout. Light-bodied; Strong skunky flavour at first with a touch of resinous and very herbal hop notes along with some grasses, weeds and a touch of spices. Aftertaste is still thin, but showing even more of the herbs and resin along with a light hop bitterness, some apple flavours (finally) and a dose of funk at the end that is very drying. Overall, a nice-ish cider with some hop flavours, but not showing enough complexity and depth from the apples alone nor from the hops to make it stand out in this category. Nice to try, given that i've liked their other products, and even though I do enjoy hops, this one wasn't one of my favourites. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Total Wine in Fairfax, Virginia on 10-September-2017 for US$2,29 sampled at home in Washington on 18-November-2017.

West Sixth Snakes In A Barrel 4.0  
West Sixth Brewing Company Lexington , Kentucky
Pitch black color. Tons of vanilla, oak, coconut, bourbon, dark chocolate, rich succulent nose. Low carbonation, tons of oak, vanilla and bourbon across the palate. Alcohol really well hidden for 13%, but not overly complex. Rounded. Very enjoyable

Surly Damien 3.6  
Surly Brewing Company Minneapolis, Minnesota
Bottle. Dark brown pour with a big, quickly dissipating tan head. Aroma is rich roasty chocolate with hints of resiny hops. Taste is lighter than expected, again roasty chocolate with just a little hoppiness. A tasty beer, but not what I'm expecting from a Black IPA, especially from Surly.

Brassneck Concentration Face 3.6  
Brassneck Brewery Vancouver, British Columbia
Can - Nice citrus and apricot. Cloudy gold with a small white head. Citrus and mango with a dry pithy bitterness. Nice.

New Belgium Voodoo Ranger Imperial IPA 4.0  
New Belgium Brewing Company Fort Collins, Colorado
Bottle from Beer Cartel 19 November 2017. Big beer in every way. Long resinous finish that is a bit dry. Hoppy aroma and flavour with mostly pine coming through. This is a beer that needs to be sipped. Great looking label on the bottle.
