Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. This is a pale golden ale with bitter pine and caramel flavours, sweet toffee, biscuit and bitterness on the finish. Superb considering the low ABV.

I have really good friends. I like them lots. They give me different things. Some are generous to a fault (is that possible?), some don’t give much time or energy but offer so much heart, some are simply there. I wonder which type they see me as.
