Cask at The Windsor and Eton brewery. Rye beers give a solid chewy base when done well and this fits the bill. Red fruit coming through too.

Cask conditioned handpump Harp London 20/03/13. A reddy brown coloured beer with an off-white wisp of head. Sweet and hoppy with pronounced rye flavours. Well balanced and with a good body. Really well put together and tasty. I sometimes shy away from rye beers but this was one I’m glad not to have missed.
