This might split opinions but i know there will be some others on here with similar great taste that might be able to help me...

 

Anyone know where you can get Becks 5% in the UK?

 

I miss this stuff a lot.

Philips Perfect Draft machines do it in 6ltr kegs. I'm selling my machine if you're interested. The time you take discount codes off etc, it probably works out about £1.90 for a pub standard pint  🙂🙂

Sounds great but a seriously bad idea for me :lol:

 

Can you just break into those kegs and down the contents without one of those machines? I seriously miss the 5% original stuff.

Enjoying this lovely weather with another nice beer from Northumbria.

 

Oswald Whiteblade (3.9%) - Holy Island Brewery, Lindisfarne, Northumbria (Brewed by Alnwick Brewery, Alnwick)

A very nice session ale, hoppy, zesty and very refreshing on a hot day such as this.

Trig Point (4.5%) - Cheviot Brewery, Cornhill-on-Tweed, Northumbria

Very citrusy session IPA, tbh a bit too citrusy for my liking.

Do you use the “untapped” app? It can be good fun recording your different beers, especially if you link up with a few mates.

No, I just record them for myself and occasionally post the odd one or two on here.

Seismic Shift (4.2%) - Cheddar Ales, Cheddar, Somerset

New Zealand Pale Ale, brewed with 4 different New Zealand hops (Nelson, Sauvin, Waimea & Motueka)

As can be seen a nice golden colour with a good head, nice citrus taste but not overpowering or bitter, just enough to be refreshing.

Bought from Beers of Europe.

Northumberland County IPA (4.5%) - Hexhamshire Brewery, Hexham, Northumbria

Decent IPA, can't fault it.

This is now the 3rd beer I bought from this brewery in this batch, having also had Devil's Water & Wall Walker, all very good priced at £2.50 per 500ml bottle and all 3 were ok.  Bought from Northumbrian Gifts.

(Not my photo) Beer I have is quite lively with a good head.

Been drinking these small beers during the week to keep the units down, very nice, even the 1% dark lager is tasty. Ethical and sustainable brewer too. Tap room in the Bermondsey beer mile which I will be visiting next week.

from that picture they are all quite low on the abv. i think a few pages back people have been talking about alcohol free stuff and i have been trying some, some ok some not so. potentially those might be a worthwhile try as yes they are not alcohol free but what half compared to standard beers

Yeah not a big fan of no alcohol beers but these are great, termed small beers which have to be under 2.8% I think. the 2.1% lager is as good as any 5% lager I have had.

There seems to be a growing market for these low alcohol beers, even I've had a few of them, two in particular spring to mind.

Jacobs Ladder (2.7%) - Buxton Brewery, Buxton. (Light brown mild ale, stunning, really really good)

Taproom Craft Light Lager (2.8%) - Donkeystone Brewery, Oldham (bought from Home Bargins, I think it was 99p or something like that, absolutely wonderful craft lager)

 

Not tried any of the small beers yet.

Harbour Wall (4.2%) - Cheviot Brewery, Cornhill-on-Tweed, Northumbria.

A lovely light pale ale, floral with a light zesty flavour, really nice and refreshing, especially as it's nice today.

(Not my photo) The beer I have has a much nicer white head.

Bought from - Northumbrian Gifts, £3 for 500ml bottle.

Vocation Honeycomb & Chocolate Stout, without a shadow of a doubt the best stout I've EVER tasted.

If anyone is ever in Manchester I highly recommend you give The Society a try, brilliant beers, brilliant food and a great atmosphere, we had a great night there last night.

Not tried that yet, seen it in the shops, but not got around to it as yet.

 

Had a bottle of this the other night, and very nice it was as well.

Nothing, the site was cleared completely. Only brewing in Alloa nowadays is Stewarts down at the industrial estate near the water.

Williams Brothers, is it not?

 

Used to like MacLay's beer from Alloa, that's many moons ago now.

A few good ones I've ahem tested recently have been Raspberry Sour from Vault City and the same from Windswept in Lossiemouth plus they do a good Weizen. A good pub I've found since we bought a van near Dunbar is the Station Yard, full of interesting beers and within a 30 second stagger to get a train home.
