So, this thread is for me to talk about ale - specifically, the ales that I like. For the past few months I’ve been exploring different ales, to immerse myself in the drink (seeing as I’ve gotten bored of all the fruity ciders I was drinking) - and have even build up quite a collection of bottles:
But I’ve not been keeping track of what I’ve actually enjoyed, so I’m no better prepared to buy good drinks than I was when I started (with the exception that I vaguely like Hobgoblin).
The plan is that I am to keep this post updated with all of the ales that I try, along with a simple note regarding if I liked it or not. Nothing too fancy really. If i was in anyway poetic I’d offer up descriptions of flavour and other elements of the drink - but I’m not, so you’ll have to make do with a simple Yes, I’d drink that again, or a No, I didn’t like that.
Yes, I’d drink that again
- Hobgoblin (I’ve had this several times, and I’ve always enjoyed it, with the exception of the time I had it on draft at Drop Forge - but I blame that on dodgy pipes or something)
- Bah Humbug (I’m pretty upset that this is a seasonal drink, as I really enjoyed it, and the thought of having to wait until each Christmas before I can have it again disappoints me - but I guess they say that absence makes the heart grow fonder)
- Fursty Ferret
No, I didn’t like that
- Leffe (I don’t know if this qualifies as ale or not, but I didn’t like it much at all)
(PS, I realise this has nothing to do with tech, but I figured that if I used the word Database somewhere in the post it’ll qualify - so there it was).
