Sleeping Giant Indian Pale Ale 5.4% Western Australia 330ml
This is a very good IPA beer. Has a strong sense of what it is. From Gates
Road brewery in WA, a mild caramel flavour with a light palate that doesn’t
sit heavy and is well suited to any meal with chilli whether Indian or Thai.
Chang Thailand 5%
Not a bad little drop has a little sweet side to it. Maybe it’s got some of
the Mekong River running through it. Can be enjoyed on a hot day with
plenty of salt in the air.
Kingfisher Lager India 4.8%
Strong odour of malt with a little bitterness, a lot of head / carbonation,
it has to be drunk with Indian food to balance the smell and flavours of the
curry with the beer to get a balanced sense of it.
Perla Export Poland 500ml 5.6%
Is it a “Pearla”? well not exactly. Is it export quality? well if people are
prepared to import it, but it’s drinkable a slight pungent odour of
Bee Sting Honey Wheat Beer 5.0%
With what seems like a poorly blended beer, weak at the top with a strong
honey flavour in the bottom third. It should probably be poured into a glass
for drinking to allow the flavours to blend. I drank straight from the
bottle and this didn’t work well for me. Having that mix makes it difficult
to give an accurate rating but seen as this is how it was packaged this is
how it will be rated.
