Brian Turner is best known as one of the quick fingered chefs creating culinary masterpieces in next to no time at all on TVís Ready Steady Cook. But heís really taken some time to create his own range of beers, all designed to coplement some very traditional British recipes. This wonderful amber ale is great with our Steak and Ale Pie. But with its subtle honey and caramel flavours and smooth rye toast finish, itís sure to go down just as well on its own too.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2010
A Mes rate. Cask at the Falcon in Battersea.
Darkish gold, very clean and like everything else in here, in very good condition. Light peach and earthy malt on the nose. Faint wheat and straw in the mouth, excellent balance as always from thornbridge and a very pleasing earthy malt finish. About as straight down the line as a beer could possibly be. Innocent and loveable. Slight fruity hints late on. I want to describe this as run of the mill, but itís thornbridge and obviously itís better than that. Itís just so bloody agreeable. A typical English pint but done very well indeed.
