Looking forward to 'baron rating' Hesket Newmarket ales very soon!

A box of ales showed up this week from Hesket Newmarket Brewery. Based in Cumbria in the more northern part and they sent 5 different beers down for baron ratings:

You might wonder why there are only four in the photo? The fifth arrived as a pile of glass and stale beer smell as it had broken in transit. It was a bottle of "Doris's 90th Birthday Ale" but judging by the label & name I'm not that bothered that it was broken, an old lady is not the type of thing that gets me thirsty...

Hesket Newmarket Brewery
  • Catbells - 5% premium pale ale, light & deliciously smooth
  • Haystacks - 3.7% refreshing ale for Fellwanderers, light zesty beer
  • High Pike - 4.2% deep amber, full of malty (as well as nutty & hoppy) flavours
  • Scafell Blonde - 4.3% full of hop flavours, slight lager character
Look out for 'baron ratings' for these Hesket Newmarket beers soon, and a big thank you to Greg from Hesket Newmarket Brewery for sending these through to me!

seriously do you ever buy your own beer?

You bet I do, Source Deli in Ormskirk stocks some great beers and I keep my eyes out on the supermarket deals too.

I've recently bought lots of canned & bottled Punk IPA, Stringers IPA & Dry Stout as well as some Marston's Old Empire & Fuller's ESB during Tesco's excellent '4 for £5' deal.

A lot of the samples are waiting for audio 'baron ratings' with Chris so it's not like I can just down the lot on my own.

Since starting this blog in July 2009 I've been amazed and humbled by just how generous brewers are in sharing their hard-crafted beer - thank you everyone for the chance to try all these great ales!
