Hmmmmm dinnae really like this one.

Freigeist Abraxas
Smoked Lichtenhainer Weisse 6%

Some German Austrian White beer brewed in accordance with the Ye Olde purity laws that dictate a lot about ingredients but not about taste. Thought it tasted like sour watery Savlon. Still drank it though. Bit more than that going on, to be fair. Apricot sweetness, soft bitterness. Bit of smoke though less than I was expecting given the name. But I couldn't get past the Savlon.

Honey Spice IPA by Sharp's Brewery

Honey Spice IPA by Sharp's Brewery. A twistedmouth beer review

Honey Spice IPA by Sharp's Brewery (6.5%)
Bit unusual this one, but worth seeking out. 
The honey isn't too overpowering, and tags along nicely with the big hitting hops. Somewheer there's a warm spicy hint but you'd be forgiven for not noticing as there's already a lot going on, including a rather zesty bitterness. Full bodied and rich, with a rounded finish.

Rough Justice by Anarchy Brew Co

Rough Justice twistedmouth beer review
Rough Justice
Rough Justice bitter amber rye ale from Anarchy Brew Co

Dry, sweet malts with a big treacle hit. Lovely caramel biscuity aroma, and a long first taste that stretched out to a medium bitter finish, with pine and citrus and a sweet caramel kick-back.

Would hoppily have again.
