Grumbo (3493) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2017
Bottle from my local Tesco. Poured dark ruby brown with a nice sized creamy off-white head. Aroma of dark fruit, malt, toasting, nut, fruit cake and a touch of chocolate. Moderate sweetness and medium bitterness. Full body, oily texture, average to soft carbonation. First rating of the bottled version despite having it a number of times over previous years - first time for a while now and it is still a decent brew.

legendary british ruby beer; a dark yet direct brew with a lovely malt base and warming mild bite, much more so than it’s casked counterpart. another go-to british brew.
