Beer52 – July 2016


After a half day at work, I was surprised to find an email in my inbox explaining that my latest Beer52 box was on its way. Even more surprised was I when the postman knocked on my door to offer the beers on the same day.
To celebrate the delivery, I though I would have a go at the #Beer52photocomp and try to earn myself a free case of beer. You can see my entry above.

I’ve made use of my large quantity of beercaps yet again in a competition and followed them up with a selection of the beers from my box aswell as a few glasses I’ve collected over the past couple of years.
A little gutted that my entry contains those odd fallen caps at the top and that pesky Rev James one at the bottom tried to take pride of place but overall, I felt it was a really good effort and with the exception of the vignetting, the image is au naturel.
Fingers crossed ey?

As usual, here is the lowdown on what my box contains thanks to the peeps at Beer52
Next month I have reached my 6th box in a row as part of their new reward scheme and earn myself two exclusive beers too!
Take a look

Rogue (Newport, Oregon USA) – American Amber – Amber Ale

Tawny amber in color with a toffee aroma, tight head, and a delicate roasted malt accent. Generous use of hops and a smooth finish.

Fourpure (Bermondsey, England) – American Pale – American Pale Ale

From Chicago to San Diego, for us California is the home of the classic American Pale Ale. Cascade in our hopback combined with balanced malts makes this a true West Coast sessionable style beer.

Fourpure (Bermondsey, England) – Skyliner Wheat – Wheat Ale

American Wheat Ale – Simples.

Five Points Brewing Company (London, England) – Railway Porter – Porter

Porter in the classic London style with our own twist. Aromas of chocolate and coffee with hints of caramel, brewed with British East Kent Goldings hops.

Portobello Brewing Company (North Kensington, England) – Westway Pale – Golden Ale

A traditional golden ale, Brewed the West Way. We carefully blend three malts, including premium Propino Pale, for a buttery biscuit quality and a full, smooth texture.
This richness is offset against aromas of grape & citrus and the end result is cool, slightly spicy & very refreshing.

Roosters (Knaresborough, England) – Fort Smith – American Pale Ale

Big and bold IPA, brewed using Citra and Chinook hops from the USA to create tropical and passion fruit aromas and a lasting, bitter finish.

Gosnells (London, England) – Hopped Mead – Mead

Inspired by our our time working with friends at local breweries, Gosnells Hopped Mead pairs the citrus notes of our signature mead with a blend of floral aroma hops to create a bold new mead

North Brewing Co (Leeds, England) – Transmission – IPA

West Coast IPA 6.9% – Another keeping it simples.

Buxton Brewery (Buxton, England) – Jacob’s Ladder – Session Beer

A big hoppy little session beer
10p per sale goes to Buxton mountain rescue.

Evil Twin Brewing (Brooklyn, New York USA) – Bikini Beer – Session Beer

Lets be frank – this is a sissy beer. 2.7 % alcohol, attractively light bodied, and annoyingly well-balanced hops. Put on your best bikini and enjoy this very, very drinkable beer in the sun, at this summers festivals, or even better use it to slowly seduce your nagging friends with an anxiety for craft beer.
