Hoppy Gilmore I expect more flavour from an IPA at this strength – but this supermarket offering is simplistic and dull. Look for Sierra Nevada or Goose Island pale ales instead.
Hoppy Gilmore Morrisons Titanic Brewery American Red Ale? If you like your red ales malty and rich, the heavy hops of this very average own-brand beer aren’t for you. Scan one from the branded beer shelves!
Hoppy Gilmore Morrisons Special Selection Black Sheep Brewery Golden Ale. If you want a bland beer that’s short on character, this watery ale with its over-soured bitterness… will fit the bill.
By Martin Isark Labelled Gordon’s with a spot of elderflower and that is exactly what this Gin delvers. End of.
Hoppy Gilmore The bitterness of an IPA rounded out with malty, puddingy darkness. Delicious.
By Martin Isark Yes, the grape is chardonnay, but white burgundy from the Burgundy region in France takes the ubiquitous chardonnay to another level.
By Martin Isark Want a change from the up-front grassy gooseberry sauvignon blancs from New Zealand? Then try this Pouilly Fumé from the Loire, it adds mineral and chalky flavours to its S.B. grape’s herbaceous, grassy and gooseberry notes
By Martin Isark Not cheap, but this pink English sparkler will give any fifty quid champagne a run for its grapes!
Hoppy Gilmore This bottle conditioned ale is an object lesson in heavy hopping. It’s won awards, and that’s no surprise.
Hoppy Gilmore Brewed to a 1938 recipe, this lovely strong ale has flavours of raisin and tobacco and a lasting bitterness.
