First Chop HOP

By   November 29, 2016

First Chop HOPFist Chop HOP is described as an Ultra Pale Ale. It is a bit bitter with lemon flavour hint. It has a pale gold colour and it builds up a nice head when poured.

Overall I like it. Tall Boys is supplying it in cans and as I mentioned before I not too sold on the concept. I may be just me but I swear I can smell the can in the beer.

It did go down well with my dinner (pork chops) and I’d like to have it again.

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.
