I've been savoring these boys for a post lockdown celebration, case of 100, but said Smeg it and decided to knock them back like an undiagnosed alcoholic. Fruity, zesty and more importantly, Scottish, like I like my men, preferably with a pony tail.

Grapefruit is the one out of those 3. Those Aldi beers are great for a quid, the Freak Aleworks IPA is particularly good.

Can you do a LFC and do decanters of fine wine. I've never been so impressed by a collection.

100% agree. aldi stocked craft/soppy beers have been shit for years but the grapefruit william bros and the freak aleworks IPA is great. unsure who brews the freak aleworks one for them though

edit: just did some googling and it looks like its brains brewery (cardiff)

The ´09 is better, worth the extra dough, this is nice but it’s not a million miles away from a typical Georgian dry white

Luckily I inherited broad shoulders. Helps distribute the wine tits in more flattering fashion.

What’s your go to atm.

Brought a bottle of Glenrothes the other day on the cheap - really easy to drink.

Also got a few others like Nikka Coffe Grain, Lagavulin 16 year old and an Aberlour batch 63. Had Lagavulin before but only a 12.
