( #staysafe)...We had a few pints of ale. Now we have to temporarily stay at home and review beers from our stash on the sofa & pass messages of hope
A near miss of a car crash of show but brought together by the cunning skill that is Rasko & Disco. Taking on global issues and playing pub games..

First up is  #DiscoHairOfTheDog

First up for Back Holiday Monday Cocktail Madness is this odd but oddly fantastic concoction, something akin to a Bloody Mary

Rhubarb & Ginger Vodka
Spicy Tomato/Soy Sauce Concoction(Home made as no Tabasco/Worcester sauce available)
Topped with @perivalebrewery 3.8%  #TomatoGose
Black Pepper

An odd mix perhaps and not quite all the right ingredients but I'm no expert and making this up as I go along. But, even if I do say so myself, and indeed, I do, this is. Off. The. Scale. Fantastic!!

Nicely spicy, peppery, balanced by fruity but sour bitterness of unripe tomatoes without a big tomato juice flavour from the Hose with a bit of salinity and savoury was. Despite the idiot pour(which I think adds to the experience/drama) the lovely bubbliness of the gose makes it very drinkable.. A Really tasty, delicious hair of the dog style triple.

I don't actually have a hangover today but if I did I think this would sorry me right out!

I had no idea beer cocktails were a thing until I saw a section on @beer52hq live stream this weekend.

This have me some ideas for some Bank Holiday Monday Madness. So I collected some ingredients together, whatever I had available. Including that mysterious unmarked bottle at the back.

I'm no cocktail expert, I don't drink spirits much. But as also not a big fan of sours I have some to use up.

Let's see how it gose?

"If it's good enough for Sunday Brunch it's good enough for me!"

Saw that this beer was featured on Channel 4's @sundaybrunchc4 this morning and having a can in the stash I though a Sunday afternoon roast without a roast in my glass had to be tried.

@yorkshirepuddingbeer / @c84brewco colab' 3.8%  #YorkshirePudAle 

Does it taste like a Yorkshire Pudding? Not really. Is it a nice pale ale anyway? Yeah, its tasty, drinkable and decent. It's a good pale ale, has all the right flavours with a slight salinity and maybe a batter thickness in the background. The hop flavour is fairly balanced and its a drinkable Sunday afternoon tipple, with or in my case without(no time and lack of ingredients to knock up some Yorkshires to go with it). Don't really need any actual Yorkshire to go with it anyway, maybe next time. The colours on the can represents the perfect Pudding fade, the colours a perfect Pudding should be. The beer looks a decent dark golden colour in the glass too.

I'm not usually so up with the popularity but as this was featured on tv this morning I thought I'd check it out. I brought this can on an order from @small_brewery_project / @thecrookedtapacomb

Continuing  #SaturdaySession with @turningpoint  #HickoryClanCaviar 6% Maple Pecan Danish Stout.

As a big fan of Turning Point beers I was excited to see this in the @beer52 Yorkshire themed box this month. I wasn't disapointed.

A strong coffee aroma on opening continues into the flavour but does not predominate. A noticeable booziness threatens to overpower but retreats, making way for the other flavours to pass over the taste buds. There is a little chocolate and a nice but not overpowering maple sweetness, with a touch of smokiness. Despite a smoothness of body there is a slight nutty roughness too and a pastry edgeyness. All the flavours combine, balanced, in the glass and make for a tasty, drinkable stout, as expected from the brilliant beer folk from Knaresborough.

Althiough this 330ml can is in the Beer52 box, luckily 440 cans are now available direct from TP's webshop, tempting me to put an order in which as always I am pleased to do.

"First one tonight and I'm already at Def Con One"!

Starting  #SaturdaySession as always in Yorkshire with Holmfirth's @threefiendsbrewhouse  #DefConOne 5.7% Oat Milk IPA

A nice tropical aroma leads into tropical fruit taste with an edge of citrus. A fairly smooth body, with a little hop roughness. The strangest foamy, light, white head I've ever seen that displays fairly fast but sticks all down the glass. Good flavour though and very drinkable. A be tasty drop.

Although I've had direct orders previously this one came from @small_brewery_project @crookedbrewing direct from Yorkshire.

@brewdogofficial  #ParadoxGrain 13% Barrel Aged Imperial Stout - On a trip down memory lane visiting Shepherds Bush, I popped by the Brewdog bar. And what I found was most impressive...... Without a shadow of a doubt. An amazing beer. Dark chocolate with little bits of smoke. Only fault I can find with it, no aroma?? I may have to have another one day to be sure. Lovely colour head, not too heavy to drink.

"Raising a glass and flagging A&H popping up over my side of town!"

Saw an email that @anspachhobday are opening a pop up in Wembley, so raising a glass of  #TheAmericanBrown to that!

What a tasty beer too. Strong in flavour and feels quite strong despite 5.2% abv. A very dark brown ale, porter like in the glass. Packs in a lot of flavour, roastiness, maltiness and balanced with background coffee/chocolate notes with maybe a little toasted coconut. A Nice hop balance too brings a balanced bitterness. Theres a clean finish to a very quaffable, tasty brown ale. Very enjoyable start to a  #FridaySession of the usual A&H quality that did not last long in the glass.

Looking forward to visiting their pop up a few stops down the line to me when I get back out and about. Opening next month apparently. Although this one was picked up from @beer_asylum in Pinner.

"Brew York hitting the target 52 weeks on!"

A year ago last week my first and probably only lockdown acheivement was getting the daart board up on the wall after 5 years in the cupboard! I marked that with a Brew York Beer and miraculously the board has stayed on the wall all year after 52 weeks of Zoom darts matches.

So I'm marking the year on with another 330ml can of @brewyorkbeer with  #RaspberryPie Raspberry Oat Milkshake Pale Ale

A refreshing fruity pale ale. Some sweetness balances the slight tartness of raspberry fruityness. A little thin in places but a refreshing and tasty enough pale ale. A pleasing find in the latest @beer52hq box.
