Beese (12344) - Tooting, London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2020 Cask at The Moon Under Water (JDW), Watford on 11/05/2006. My my my. I really did like this one, back in the day. The kind of beer you found on in a JDW and spent the whole evening going through five or six pints. Bloody smooth, full bodied and just that bit smokey. It’s the kind of beer that made you want to blow off your friend’s 21st birthday party for.

massingasetta (974) - München, GERMANY - NOV 22, 2015
This is a Porter that perfects the art of a bitter stout type smoked sweet and hoppy beer. A beer that is heavy and smooth all in one. A real good beer from the Isle of Man.
