The Cock Tavern, Hackney, Greater London

Stephen HarrisExcellent05 Feb 2016 I find it hard to ignore this lush, strong beer when it is on the bar and finished up for the evening with an enjoyable pint.
Stephen HarrisAcceptable19 Jan 2016 I’m very ambivalent about anything ‘red’. If it has a strong hop flavour I usually love it, dominated by sweetness and I hate it. Usually love this one, but not tonight when the dominant flavour seemed to be caramel.
