OH MY GOD! Have you seen how many awesome beers are available these days. It's amazing. And don't even start thinking about how many different ciders on the shelves. Some beers are good, some beers are OK and some beers are just plain awful. Let's get the awful one out of the way first. Like Tasmanian Bitter, Hammer 'N' Tongs is an awful beer. When poured you get a nice creamy head for about one minute. Come back for a second sip and the heads dead, just like the beer. After two minutes the beer is completely flat. There is nothing really "beer" about Hammer 'N' Tongs. It's soft and soapy and also mostly tasteless. I'd rather drink Carlton before forced to drink this stuff. Stay away.
been enjoying the occasional White Rabbit for some years now. Like hammer 'N'
Tongs it is made in Australia (or is it, maybe more like San Miguel - James Boag and Sons - and a Thailand Brewing company. Could explain why it tastes like SHIT!) Unlike Hammer 'N' Tongs it is an exceptionally
good drink. This is a dark ale with a dry finish. Think stout (what some call
Guinness) dark, rich flavoured, bitter and full flavoured. I love this Beer for
its sheer depth of flavour it's dark creamy texture and satisfying pleasures.
Dundee may not be chasing a crock but he would be chasing after this beer
because, like White Rabbit, Dundee is a full bodied lushes drop.
is brewed on New York. Generally I don't like American beers. I think it's the
water, seriously. I have only ever liked a few. Budweiser, though not a big
favourite of mine, is good for something different, now and then. Dundee Indian
Pale Ale is not only a stunning tasting bitter beer but looks a million Dollars
straight out of the bottle. It's dark treacle in colour with a rich creamy fine
bubbled head. It has a bitter-sweet taste which sits at the back of the pallet
and stays there for ages.
I drink it icy cold (typical Ozzie) but I'll
bet this beer would taste even better just cool. There is so much flavour it has
to give and the depth of flavour just keeps unfolding. A shockingly good beer. A
really well crafted American ale. I didn't know they could do it. You must try
this beer even if you are not a big beer drinker, you may turn for this one.
