Tasting Summary

These comments are the opinion of the individual reviewer and represent what they thought of the beer on a particular day in a particular pub. If a review is less favourable, it may be because the beer suffered somewhere in the supply chain between them and the brewery.

Stephen HarrisGood10 Sep 2013 Great to taste the Hackney Wick-brewed Trumanís at last (and the brewery launch party is this coming Saturday). Dark, fruity and tangy as when contract-brewed at Everards, but we all thought it was a significant improvement and in a traditional style that remains very popular.
