Three Boys - Pils    A pilsner styled beer but made with NZ hops so a bit fruity. Good drop but not as bitter as I would like from a pilsner.

Epic - Flying Nun 30 Year Ale (Pale Ale). Flying Nun Records is a local NZ music label that has been part of the music scene for the past, well, 30yrs. Epic decided to make a beer in honour of that and this is what we get. A lovely little pale ale to sip away during a warm summer night while listening to Chris Knox - "Love Not Given Lightly".

Renaissance - Stonecutter (Scotch Ale). Who knew that the Scottish did ales as well as whiskies?! Anyways, this is a fine fine fine scotch ale. The first time I had it I thought it was average, but then had another a few weeks ago which I had left age for a few months and WOW! A great beer to have on a slightly cool afternoon (or morning if you are so inclined).

Epic - Barrel Aged IPA. Ok, so, I haven't had this in a while but I was more fond of the Armageddon IPA compared to this when I had it. Still, this is still a very fine beer which many people would prefer to drink over the regular IPA.

Renaissance - Elemental (Porter). Had this beer (not this exact one in the picture) on new years eve. My attempt at pouring this failed as I got 1 inch beer and 8 inches head and had to wait what seemed an age for the head to go down. A great drop to see in 2012!

8 Wired - The Big Smoke (Smoked Porter). To be honest, it will take me a while to get into smoked beers. This was the first (and currently only) smoked beer I've had. The nose was great, don't get me wrong, but there was something about the smokiness that put me off slightly. Will definitely need to try it again, if just to get used to the flavour.

8 Wired - iStout (Imperial Stout). What you are looking at in the glass is part vanilla ice cream and part iStout, which is otherwise known as an imperial float (I think, haven't tried doing that yet but worth a go sometime). This beer was my first foray into imperial stouts (or stouts in general). Nice and rich, sweet, lovely silky feel in the mouth. Google the history on how imperial stouts came about, very interesting reading (ps. it has to do with Russians!).

Renaissance - Paradox (Blonde/Golden Ale). Mmmmmmm om nom nom. Lovely wee drop with a bit of smoked fish and fresh salad for dinner.

Three Boys - Wheat. Sorry, couldn't find an image with the bottle as well. But, this is my favourite of any beer I've had. They add lemon zest and coriander to the process giving a nice fruity nose and slightly tangy flavour. A must try for you wheat beer fans, or just beer fans in general.

8 Wired - Tall Poppy (India Red Ale). Awesome dark red colour. Been a while since I've had one so can't really comment on the flavour too much. Malty though, is what I remember. If you want to check out any beer reviews head over to YouTube and search for 'Master of Hoppets'. Has a great review on this brew.
