another trip to BM. another SN to try.
life can be tough in the city but it has it's little perks...
the bottle says a mellow taste that slides across the palate with layers of subtle malt flavour balanced by a touch of delicate European hops.
i say it's bloody lovely.
6.4%....too easy to drink is the only problem.
life is tough.
...still not been brave enough to crack open the big boy yet. will keep you posted.

i would give you the link for the website of the fabulous utobeer stall at Borough Market but at last peek (30 seconds ago) it's the same "new website coming soon..." sign that was there last year when i first looked. if they ever get it going (and please please do mail order) then all of my beer woes may be over, they have an amazing selection of beers - and as far as i'm aware the wideset selection of SN this side of the pond.
a curry night meant i needed some beers and a trip to BM seemed the logical choice. after my usual 10 minute stare at the beer selection before i located the SN section (i'm sure they move it every bloody week) i was left with a rather prickly decision....
13th release harvest wet hop ale?
chico estate harvest?
all of the above?
a mix of pale and kellerweis seemed a good choice and just couldn't resist a big big bottle of 13th release harvest ale (£7).
as soon as i drink the beast (6.7%) i'll let you know what i think.
maybe back next week for the chico...
