flying_pig (1410) - SCOTLAND - MAY 18, 2015
500ml bottle at home, bought at Oak Tree Inn - Balmaha (£2.99):
Not a bad effort from the Loch Lomond brewery in the end, I didn’t think this one started particularly well but it started to grow on me as I worked my way down the glass. I doubt it’s one that will leave a lasting impression but it was enjoyable enough despite the fact I’m still not sure it is actually supposed to be a brown ale or not; I’ll list it as that anyway though.
