Looking forward to baron rating these Beer 52 ales

Beer52 were one of the companies involved in this years European Beer Bloggers Conference offering a sample box to all attendees (awesome!). The offer a Craft Beer Discovery Club, sending you a selection (8 bottles) of quality ales every month. My box arrived well-packed today, here is what was inside:

  • Black Wolf Coulls - 4.2% smooth, contemporary, premium craft lager. Chill for a while and savour the crisp, fresh and peachy flavours
  • Brewers & Union Steph Weiss - 5% weissbier
  • Cumberland Corby Fox - 4.7% full bodied deep reddish brown ale. Smooth with lots of soft fruit flavours
  • Einstok Icelandic Pale Ale - 5.6% pale ale, three kinds of hops combine with pure Icelandic water to create our version of the Pale Ale, where robust flavour meets smooth malt. Cascade hops give it the American character, while Northern Brewer and Hallertau Tradition add just enough bitterness to make this ale refreshingly Icelandic
  • Einstok Icelandic White Ale - 5.2% white ale
  • Hillside Centurion - 7% American IPA
  • Killer Cat Manga - 5% 
  • Highland Orkney IPA - 4.8% IPA, two malts and six different hops compliment each other to create a flavour that is greater than the sum of its parts. Unlike most modern IPAs this has actually been on a sea voyage, albeit only across the Pentland Firth from Orkney
There was also an excellent info pack in the box, giving lots of details about the beers (more than was on some of the labels - see above).

Look out for 'baron ratings' of these beers soon, and a big thank you to Siobhan from Beer52 for sending them through to me!
