Looking forward to baron rating Beer52 ales

I got sent a box of mixed ales from Beer52 as one of the perks of attending the European Beer Bloggers Conference in Dublin this year. Well I got contacted again recently to see if I would like to review another one of their packs, this time their Autumn pack:

  • Barcelona Cerdos Voladores -6% "Hi, this is #14" our rowdiest beer, made with the finest hops
  • Belhaven Scottish Oat Stout - 7% oat stout, dark, rich and layered with a wonderful silky texture and a lingering finish
  • Einstok Icelandic Toasted Porter [baron rating 5/5] - 6% toasted porter
  • Freigeist Abraxxxas - 6% smoked Lichtenhainer Weisse. Inspired by the easten German tart wheat beer style once known as "Lichtenhainer", Abraxxxas is sour and complex, with a balancing smoky maltiness

  • Medus Blonde - 5% blonde, a light beer which is refreshing while having a full body and a characteristic bitterness
  • Oppigards Golden Ale - 5.2% golden ale with a twist, American Cascade was used late in the boil to give a hint of flora & citrus
  • Mordue Ascendancy - 7.4% Belgian double IPA-weizen hybrid brewed with candy sugar. A head storm of tropical fruit, mango and banana with a hop-forward, resiny finish
  • Redwillow Wreckless [baron rating 5/5] - 4.8% pale ale, when you want a big hit of American hops and aroma, but don't want to fall off your seat

Savory popcorn and a beer mag too!
It also included some tasty-looking savoury popcorn (fiery worcester sauce & sun-dried tomato) from the Propercorn company and issue #4 of Beer52's Ferment mini-mag/newspaper (24 pages of articles about the beers in the box, and interviews/recipes with the beers from the box).

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