Arkell's Bee's Organic Ale
Tastingbeers.com Editors Choice - Winner

Arkell's Bee's Organic Ale
80A very pleasant, unpasteurised, golden/orange beer with clean, fresh flavours.

Artois Bock
Tastingbeers.com Recommended - Winner

Artois Bock
83An interesting recreation of a beer from the Artois archives: a hybrid of the bock and Vienna lager styles. All too drinkable for its strength, hence only sold in small bottles or, on draught, in half...

Brasserie de Saverne  Kasteel Cru

Brasserie de Saverne Kasteel Cru
78An interesting, very pale lager fermented with a Champagne yeast. Spritzy and refreshing but may have more appeal for wine drinkers than beer fans.

Cusquena Premium

Cusquena Premium
68A shallow Peruvian thirst quencher. There's not much to savour, but no doubt it comes into its own under the baking South American sun.

Hampshire The Bee's Knees

Hampshire The Bee's Knees
50A hazy yellow beer that keeps the honey in check. The sharpness indicates that this particular sample was probably not at its best.

Hoegaarden Grand Cru
Tastingbeers.com Editors Choice - Winner

Hoegaarden Grand Cru
80A hazy yellow ‘triple', laced with coriander and bitter orange peel. Unlike the increasingly ubiquitous Hoegaarden itself, this big brother is not a wheat beer. Now a touch weaker than a year ago (w...

Morrisons The Best
Tastingbeers.com Editors Choice - Winner

Morrisons The Best
85Excellent value, strong, amber bitter, an ‘own label' beer produced by the Freeminer Brewery in Gloucestershire.

Wells & Youngs Waggle Dance

Wells & Youngs Waggle Dance
75Refreshingly, a quaffable bitter with a firm hoppiness and a honey accent, rather than a thick, sweet honey ale.

Williams Brothers Alba Scots Pine Ale

Williams Brothers Alba Scots Pine Ale
78A fine, fresh-tasting, interesting creation (described as a ‘triple' on the label).

Williams Brothers Fraoch Heather Ale

Williams Brothers Fraoch Heather Ale
78A well-balanced, intriguing, dark golden beer based on a 16th century recipe. The hot wort is infused with heather flowers and bog myrtle, which presumably is responsible for the spicy flavours.

Williams Brothers Kelpie Seaweed Ale

Williams Brothers Kelpie Seaweed Ale
75A deep ruby ale designed to replicate the old Scottish practice of fertilising barley fields with seaweed. This seaweed goes into the mash tun instead.
