The Golden Pheasant. I enjoyed several of these in Bratislava and Trnava 4 years ago. How much are Lidl selling it for?

Think it was £1.79 or something for a 500ml bottle.

Lidl have got a bunch of Scottish beers in this week (Thursdays are when they start their new promotions, which include the mad shit in the middle of the store and their drinks promotions).

Picked up these:

Wanted to get more but I'm poor and also don't want to buy too many beers.

As an aside, Lidl also sell the decent Innis and Gunn craft lager (green cans) in a 4 pack for a fiver.

You really can't beat Aldi and Lidl for their selections of beers, especially when they've got their Scottish Beer Festivals on the go.

Yup. Shame they don't sell the 'festival' beers all year.

Cheers. I was in yesterday and there range wasn't that great- I'll pop back in on my lunch break tomorrow.

I've tried these few tonight. All decent enough with the Glasgow Porter and the super drinkable Winter Sunshine from Spey Valley Brewery (pick of the bunch) being the stand-outs. The Neipa was the only one I was a wee bit disappointed in.20201024_005737.jpg

Spey Valley do some excellent beers. Their 'Sunshine on Keith' is excellent. It's sold in the bar in Inverness train station.

That Williams Brother Craft Lager is very good stuff too.

NEIPAs are more miss than hit in my experience/opinion.

Anyway, bottles of this were £1 in Morrisons. Obviously they're punting the stock.

Actually pretty decent stuff. Not as strong and definitely far less carbonated than a normal Strongbow is, and far less sweet, despite smelling exactly as you would imagine.

I'd highly recommend getting a bottle of the Ola Dubh from the current range to anyone who hasn't tried it yet.

That's a bargain, usually about £3.50.

Tried that in Brussels last year. You get a mini yard-of-ale style glass to drink it from.

I bought one but haven't tried it yet. Anyway last night I tried another one of my Lidl purchases. Wasn't sure what to expect from 71 Brewing's Valleys Between, described as a strawberry and passion fruit gose, but it was lovely - really refreshing. I'll be popping back for a few more of these and the Spey Valley Winter Sunshine. 20201025_181842.jpg

Just had a Drygate Double Disco there. No bad, certainly grew on me as it went on. Got a Salt NEIPA and a Drygate Chocolate Peanut Butter stout for later but, with no fucking modesty whatsoever, the highlight of the night is this. The best work of my short brewing career so far, a German Lager that would pass for shop bought every day of the week. Giving myself a pass on this arrogance, because I have worked like f**k to get to a point of making a good lager.

That one's waiting to be opened tomorrow night so good to hear.
