Looking forward to baron rating these Ales By Mail beers

The start of new month this time meant a new box of tasty ales to review thanks to the very kind people over at Ales By Mail.They gave me discount voucher to spend in their wide and varied 'pick & mix' range and here's what I picked to review:



The cans look small but hold the same as the bottle - 330ml
  • BrewDog Jack Hammer - 7.2% west coast india pale ale. This IPA is bitter. Very bitter. (continue usual BrewDog bottle speil)
  • Beavertown 8 Ball Rye IPA - 6.2% (that's all from the label)
  • Beavertown Neck Oil Session IPA - 4.3% (that's all from the label)
  • Bristol Beer Factory Saison - 6.5% classic Belgian summer ale, bursting with flavour. The Saison yeast gives smooth fruity notes and it is rounded off with spicy European hops
  • Bristol Beer Factory Ultimate Stout - 7.5%, strong black, unctuous and delicous. Hints of coffee, chocolate & dark fruits, made using a Belgian yeast & roasted malts
  • De Molen Vuur & Vlam - 6.2% IPA-ish strong beer, hopped with premiant, galena, cascade, chinook, simcoe & amarillo hops
  • Kernel London Sour - 2.5% contains wheat (that's all from the label)
A stack of craft cans

  • Amber Ale - 5.1% amber ale inspired by Colorado, USA (that's all from the label)
  • IPA - 6.5% IPA inspired by Oregon, USA (that's all from the label)
  • Pale Ale - 5% pale ale inspired by California, USA (that's all from the label)
  • Pils - 4.7% Pils inspired by Munich Germany (that's all from the label)

Look out for 'baron ratings' of these beers soon, and a big thank you to Chrissie Saunders (Blogger Outreach & Online Communities) from Ales By Mail for sending these through to me!

I'm a big fan of these craft cans, here are a few 'arty' shots that I took :-/
