Northern Powerhouse Brew Series - "His 'n Hers"



Disclaimer & caveat(s) incoming.......
These were bought on a whim from Honest Brew utilising The Beer O'Clock Show discount, my thoughts on the beers were not impacted by this, however, the first 5 beers were consumed during the World Cup Quarter Final between England and Sweden, so, I most definitely wasn't 100% focussed on the beers. 
Grateful thanks to Michelle for choosing the order, taking the pictures and pouring the beers so I barely had to move during the match (yep, she's a keeper).

Northern Powerhouse Brew Series 006 Wylam x Hawkshead
DDH PALE WITH CITRA BBC, CHINOOK BBC, AMARILLO.
Hers: Refreshing start to the series, tropical fruits on the nose and a slight bitterness at the end. Lovely for a 5%
Untappd rating - 3.25 / 5
His: Juicy session pale ale, slightly oniony bready quality to it
Untappd rating - 3.5 / 5

Northern Powerhouse Brew Series 002 Wylam x Cloudwater
STRONG BROWN ALE.
Hers: This is absolutely delicious, coffee and chocolate in the aroma which I wasn’t expecting and a wonderful chocolatey taste
Untappd rating - 4 / 5
His: Initial chocolatey toasty notes, lovely smooth mouth feel too, well balanced
Untappd rating - 3.75 / 5

Northern Powerhouse Brew Series 004 Wylam x Thornbridge
AMERICAN WHEAT WITH JASMINE FLOWERS, ORANGE PEEL.
Hers: Beautiful wheat beer, lovely orange aroma and taste
Untappd rating - 3.75 / 5
His: Finely balanced pale ale which is just as well, with the addition of wheat and Jasmin
Untappd rating - 3.5 / 5

Northern Powerhouse Brew Series 007 Wylam x Northern Monk
INDIA PALE ALE WITH CITRA BBC, MOSAIC BBC, VIC SECRET, GALAXY.
Hers: All the fruit on the nose with a very odd colour to it. But bags of flavour and very drinkable
Untappd rating - 3.25 / 5
His: Visually, it's very unappealing, like a cold milky cup of tea. On the nose, fruity and savoury.....lighter mouthfeel than expected and it's a bit fruity
Untappd rating - 3 / 5

Northern Powerhouse Brew Series 005 Wylam x Magic Rock
FOREST FRUIT KETTLE SOUR WITH BLACKBERRY, BLACKCURRANT, RASPBERRY.
Hers: Absolutely delicious bags of flavour with all the cherries and raspberries. Simply amazing. I need more.
Untappd rating - 4.25 / 5
His: They should make a Slush Puppie out this, it would be bloody fantastic! As it is, it is just a very nice fruity sour, really well balanced too, gateway?
Untappd rating - 3.75 / 5

Northern Powerhouse Brew Series 003 Wylam x Black Lodge
MIXED FERMENTATION FARMHOUSE WITH APRICOT, PEACH, MANGO.
Hers: Awesome, delicious and amazing
Untappd rating - 3.25 / 5
His: Definitely Belgiany notes for me, got the farmhouse thing going on.
Untappd rating - 3.5 / 5

Northern Powerhouse Brew Series 008 Wylam x Box Social
DIPA WITH CITRA CRYO, AMARILLO CRYO, BRU 1, GALAXY.
Hers: All the juice, all the bitterness
Untappd rating - 3.75 / 5
His: I didn't have much to say on this one, simply not a style that ticks my box, but, it was well made.
Untappd rating - 3.25 / 5

Northern Powerhouse Brew Series 001 Wylam x Buxton
CHOCOLATE CHIP VANILLA IMPERIAL STOUT.
Hers: Beautifully smooth, vanilla ice cream and all the chocolate with that wonderful alcohol burn at the end.
Untappd rating - 4.25 / 5
His: By far and away the best of the Powerhouse selection. Chocolate vanilla ice cream with a touch of alcohol added (well 10.5% of it)!
Untappd rating - 4.25 / 5

Well, that's what we thought about them, hope you enjoyed our reviews. All in all, a nice little series brought to us by Wylam & friends, stunning artwork on the cans and it was great to share the 440ml pours with Michelle. Cheers guys!
