JorgeLee (1271) - Greater London, - JAN 25, 2013
Cask at the Cock Tavern E8. Reddish brown in colour. I’m a big fan of these hoppy red ales, and Howling Hops have smashed it with their versions. Luscious juicy fruit from the hops, berries with a hint of sweetness, cream, a bit of snap, long bitter finish. Splendid.
