The Ton 100 – NT Draught – Darwin Stubbie

 Darwin Stubbie NT Draught NT Draught “Darwin Stubbie”  Northern Territory 2litres 4.9%

Well the 100th beer in the Ton Challenge has to have something to mark the occasion,  is it the most expensive beer in the world, the most obscure ingredients, the hightest alcohol percentage or could it be size, well thanks to Chicka who sourced me a Darwin  Stubbie it was the latter with a 2 litre bottle.The beer it self is not much to write home about, it’s a mild draught that doesn’t offer a great deal other than that you can share it with mates.

Rating 69/100

The Ton 99 – Murray’s Angry Man

 Murray's Angry Man Murray’s Angry Man Pale Ale , Port Stephens 330ml 5%

The penultimate beer in the challenge, and it’s another beer from the folks up at Port Stephens’ Murray’s Craft Brewing Co, it’s not the best pale ale on the market, but it’s pleasant with a a slight caramelization and your traditional citrusy pale ale flavour. Well suited ice cold with fresh prawns on a hot summers day.

Rating 77/100

The Ton 98 – Sagres

Sagres Portugal 330ml 5.0%

Well the portugese beers were popular this week with Super Bock a number of days ago, this is an easy drinking slightly malted beer with a bit of an earthy aroma, won’t interupt your char grilled steak as it’s boardering on watery but just sticks in there.

Rating 72/100

The Ton 97 – Wicked Elf Witbier

Wicked Elf Witbier Port Macquarie Australia 5.0% 330ml

Well I had the sister earlier and was hoping this was going to be the prettier sister, but alas it was a bit of a Paris and Nikki Hilton affair, both not to bad looking but not much going on inside and you just wouldn’t know which was the lesser of two evils. I was expecting an Australian version of Hoegaarden, boy was I a little disappointed,it was just flat with little wheat and a short and abrupt tang. To say that, there is nothing to dislike but I was expecting something better.

Rating 76/100
