Old Contemptible – 4.8% – Caledonian

Brewed in partnership with the Imperial War Museum, Old Contemptible is a beer to mark the centenary of the First World War. It’s sweet on the nose with big bursts of vanilla and chocolate, and there’s a subtle maltiness at the back too. The taste is a more muted. The chocolate is there but it’s… Read more »

Stewart Brewing’s Radical Road promises to be a swaggering bitter brute. It’s hopped in the kettle, primary and secondary so the burst of tropical fruits and grapefruit on the nose comes as no surprise. A malty base and gentle orange notes complement the aromas from the hops to create a really interesting first impression. Radical… Read more »
