Cask handpull at The Crosse Keys Bishopsgate as ’Purser’s Pudding Ale’, brewed at Nelson, 4%. Cola black with a red hue, still with a creamy light brown head. Aroma is airy chocolate and liquorice, but not much going on. Body is quite light, smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is rounded and creamy, soft milk chocolate, light liquorice and plum, some ash, light hop bitterness with some clove-like spice. Is it a mild, a porter or an old ale? Could easily pass for a mild and would be a good one at that. A decent amount of flavour for the abv.

(cask @ Coopers, Rochester) Maybe I should have listed this as an ’Old Ale’ on reflection,its not dark enough to be a ’stout’ on complextion, but looked porter’esque -and tasted it . This pudding juice was a ’reward’ for withstanding a jaded everning of choir with Jesus in the house at the picturesque Rochester cathedral ; Rich and spicy ,chocolaty and warming . Somehow through shitloads of chocolate malt and spices this does give a decent pudding resemblance and has an overall texture that’s not generic -meaning this is not on the gimicky side of the street . !
