    Drank a few of the Pirate Life beers in SA. Well deserving of the high opinion folks have of them....

    Is there not anything new out there that our Intrepid beer fanciers out there that have tasted lately, I finally got hold of the Balter XPA today after reading great things but was unimpressed, while a very nice beer nothing especially stood out for me, I did see a Monteiths Extra Pale IPA in another establishment, anyone!.

    Yep I agree with you on balter..

    Interesting packaging design, but taste wise it's rather plain..

    I know mick fanning is a part owner, but this beer has pretty much undone any kudos he got for punching a shark.

    Balter xpa is full of flavour, and I am a big hop head. Maybe you guys got an older batch. For best flavour they should be drunk within 2-3 months max once out of the fermenter.

    Tecate. Tastes like Mexican beer, and not heavy, so will probably have a thousand tonight ...

    grabbed a stoke mixer on the way home last night, 6 different beers in the pack. Haven't tried the stout or the amber ale yet but the others were brilliant.

    When i opend up the first and sat down the very next news story on tv was about the history of the tiny pub in nelson that started brewing it lol
