3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Really pleasantly surprised to find this slightly malty strongish beer. IPA is the rage but this isn't following a trend. Nice, well balanced and great with a curry.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Zeera in South Shields. I ate alone. They put me in the centre of the room like an exhibit. The meal was really delicious. Naga chillies but used correctly so that it had all the flavour without a totally dominant spice. It’s been a while since I had a curry that good. The beer was alright too. Acted as a good foil to the curry.
