    Just enjoying a bottle of Badger – Golden Glory. It has a very distinctive peach flavour which shouldn’t work but I find very good indeed.

    Any other distinctively flavoured beers that shouldn’t work but do?

    Seconded. That and Golden Glory are excellent.

    I’m also a fan of Blandford Fly – the ginger kick works very well

    Meantime over in Greenwich do some flavored Wheat Beers, some are really good… But I drink their Ale so I can’t tell you which ones they are πŸ˜€

    Blandford Fly and Golden Glory could both turn me into an alchoholic, if I could afford it.

    Speaking of seasonal beer, I tried the Wychwood – Bah Humbug Xmas Ale last week. Spiced cinnamon and dried fruits apparently. It had a pleasant enough taste but a strange plasticky aftertaste. Close but no cigar imo.

    Edit – apologies for the xmas ref in mid November!

    +1 Banana Bread

    Also Saltaire Brewery’s Raspberry Blonde and Triple Chocoholic were both more quaffable than I anticipated.

    Mongozo Banana Beer is insanely bananery but tastes rather nice.

    It tastes the same where ever you buy it, only brewed from 4 ingredients, yet can raise a supercilious sneer from denizens of STW anywhere in the country.

    I love beer but this is truly awful, smoked.

    De Molen Rook & Vuur

    There’s a fair few craft beer or ale cocktails out there, can’t remember them though funny enough.

    Edit: here you go link, white beer with lemon and honey is pleasant, chocolate and porter too

    Not a huge fan of Golden Glory, too much peach for my taste.

    This was nice, though:

    Saltaire Raspberry Blonde is indeed very nice. I have one in the fridge chilling right now

    Their Triple Chocoholic is also very nice.

    Hall and Woodhouse did one called Summer Days two years ago, which had a hint of Raspberry in it, which was rather pleasant indeed. I don’t think I could have drunk many in a sitting, but just one was rather nice indeed.
    I had a Fullers Christmas Ale from a few years back which had some sort of Cherry Flavouring in it, didn’t work for me though.
