Bottle from Mr Lawrence Wine Merchants, Brockley. Dark amber pour with a beige head. Disappointing nose. A little caramel and toffee in there but no much else. Caramel, nuts and butterscotch flavours. Sharp hoppy finish. Pleasant enough.

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2010
A Mes rate. Cask at the Bree Louise.
Slightly hazy amber colour with a good off white head and plenty of lace. A very pleasant bitter indeed. Slight straw, hay and pig farm. Excellent earthy malt with some hints of burnt sugar. Just the right amount of floral hoppage to balance it all out really well. Finish is so well balanced it almost feels a little dull but it lasts long enough to regain my interest. Good stuff.

BBF 2010 dark Amber in colour. With a musky leathery malt nose. Sweet strong grassy taste. Very good beer and a massive improvement on the wandle. Finally a good local beer.
