I think I've had Aventinus befor ebut I'm not sure. I've definitely had Schneider Weisse from the same brewery. Good stuff.

I had a bottle of this stuff a few nights ago:
Paradox - Award winning Scottish whisky cask beer | BrewDog

It's an astonishing beer. Quite unlike anything I've tasted before - I've tasted other beers that have been matured in whisky casks, but not an imperial stout. This was a Speyside one, but I'd really love to try the Islay version...

Their Punk IPA is also rather special - viciously hoppy, more like an American "double IPA" than a traditional British IPA.

This is good information. I'm often shy of beers with, er, non-traditional labelling. There's so much choice in our wonderful local beer shop that I rarely wonder what I might be missing.

Tried that Punk IPA stuff and was underwhelmed.  I like Brains SA Gold - now that's hoppy.  And Fullers Honeydew, either on draught or in bottle is a pleasant pint.  As is St Austell Tribute.

Ooh, shame! Now, I'll admit that it's no Sierra Nevada Pale Ale but I like it a lot - it's like grapefruit-flavoured lager!

Paradox is the one I'd really want to try again though.

Honeydew is too sweet for my taste, but I've only had it from a bottle. They had St Austell Tribute as a guest ale in my local recently and I enjoyed it very much indeed. I might have a word with the landlord and see if he'll get some of the Brains in if it's as good as all that.

If you can get it, the Walsall-brewed Highgate Old Ember is worth a try. 6.5% though, so not a session beer.
