Fresh and feisty, our twist on an American Amber Ale is aromatic and uplifting. Five malts mingle for a rich, complex flavor. Named after the Effra river, which now flows beneath urban Brixton, this ale is perfect for deep thirsts.

BlackHaddock (6974) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2017
Cask half-pint in The Brixton Craft on 22nd Jan 2017. Deep amber body, white head that lasted. Malts all the way here, well until the slightly bitter hop finish anyway. Toffee like esters in the nose and initial taste, a bag of mixed fruits within the aroma and flavours also. More going on than meets the eye in this brew. Liked it.

magda174a (17) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2016 Di invitante colore ambrato, al palato non rispetta le aspettative risultando troppo aromatica e alcolica. Difficile da bere.
