This was actually sent to me in a trade...I can't find them around here, either.
It is FANTASTIC in these cans, whereas I pretty much hate drinking it out of the bottles. I don't know why every UK brewery thinks it's a good idea to export their beers in clear glass bottles.

I wrote Belhaven and they claim that it somehow is more ecological, saving some 20,000 tons of glass a year. I don't see how, they never got into that.

They could save even more glass if they just used cans...

Right? The most widely recycled material on earth, and as a bonus your beer doesn't taste like booty.

I think that they think it's fancy... just like the German's and green bottles. Bellhaven used to bottle their Twisted Thistle IPA in brown, amazing. Switched to clear recently, arse.

Found a few goodies trying to hide in the kegerator. Weirdboy, I believe the Caldera came from you, thanks. It's a really nice IPA.

This is also a really nice IPA. I'm a sucker for the English style, so this one's right up my alley. Lots of American hops character, but the balance is perfect. Nice malt and fruit-y yeast flavors blend really well with floral/fruit-y hops. Awesome beer.

Since my wife is gluten intolerant, I had a Belgian gluten-free beer called Green's...horrible, horrible. Had to pour it down the drain bad!

That's an awesome IPA! I brewed a clone and its one of my favorites. I've never had the original, but if its as good as the clone I brewed, then it's a winner.

This beer tastes what I hope my American Red I brewed last weekend tastes like. Another excellent beer from NordeastBrewer77. The brewery is Lakefront if anyone wants to try and find it.
