So normally I would list a beer and some notes about it but this week I have been working my way through a box set I was give on my birthday. They’re all the rage! This time the box set is a box set of beer and they are all excellent. They fit my criteria of being not too strong and great tasting. Some of them are reviewed elsewhere on the site but I want to mention some which were more unusual or anyway unknown to me.
Banks’s Bitter, this one from Wolverhampton, slightly darker and strangely slightly less strong at 3.8%. I ready on the back that “A bitter that resonates with tangy and refreshing flavours that only Fuggles and Goldings – the twin masterpieces of the English hopgrower’s artn can deliver”. Well I don’t know about that but the it makes a wonderful accompaniment to a BBQ (I don’t mean the eating bit I mean the blokes standing around burning things), something else with the eating maybe. Excellent.
Next, Jennings Cumberland from the Castle Brewery. It is called a Deep Golden Ale, I don’t know if the water from the lake district or what but I found this a really refreshingly different beer – maybe a perfect summer drink at just 4%. Definitely recommended.
Anyway they are all good and I’m off to find any other box for the weekend barbie!
