Night Mission

By   April 14, 2016

The best thing about this beer is the history behind the name which is worth knowing:

During World War II a Mosquito aircraft crashed into the fields at Glebe Farm whilst attempting to land at its base, RAF Wyton. The aircraft was one of the RAF’s Pathfinder Force whose headquarters were at RAF Wyton. The Pathfinder Force consisted of Mosquitos and Lancasters, flown by the most experienced aircrew who dropped flairs with great accuracy on that night’s target as markers for the following bomber stream. The Pathfinder Force won several Victoria Crosses but suffered many losses. Its contribution to the war effort significantly shortened WWII. During World War II a Mosquito aircraft crashed into the fields at Glebe Farm whilst attempting to land at its base, RAF Wyton.

It’s too carbonated and in words of my girlfriends it is an acquired taste fanciful words to say she didn’t like it either.

I bought it from Skipton’s Keelhan Farms market but I believe it possible to purchase it from Ocado as well

First thing you’ll notice if the smell. It has a great citrus aroma. It also has a beatifilul amber colour and good body.

My first sip wasn’t the greatest. There was something in there I didn’t like initially but it disappeared straight away and from there it was a pleasure.

£5 from the Tall Boys shop in Leeds. Expensive.

Belgian Golden Ale

M&S Belgian AleThis is a M&S branded Belgian Golden Ale. The colour was fantastic and I expected much but unfortunately I was a little bit disappointing. It lacked the deep flavour I was waiting for and perhaps a body as well. On the bright side my girlfriend liked it because this ale is carbonated something that she often enjoys.

Readily available in the gluten free aisle at M&S for just £2 which is a bargain when you compare to brands like Mongozo.

Mongozo Wheat Beer

By   April 2, 2016

First thing I thought when I saw this beer was gluten free and wheat! Are they nuts! But not, they aren’t. Itfles7_bigv2‘s not made from wheat but from buckwheat (which as you may not it’s not actually a grain but a fruit seed). I used buckwheat on backing a number of times and whilst I don’t dislike it (and buckwheat pancakes are fantastic) it has a very strong flavour which I’m surprise to find out is not present on this beer.

In fact I had to do a double take to ensure this was not a regular wheat beer. It tasted very much like an Erdinger or any other good quality wheat beer. It was very refreshing and went very well with the nuts curry I had for dinner. As it’s common from me my only problem was the 4.8% which is at the top end of what I like but nothing wrong with a couple of bottles!

I bought it from the Little Leeds Beer House and it’s also available from Amazon. Enjoy!
