Pretty quiet sunday late afternoon.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Dark Star - Seville4.00ExcellentRust orange in colour. Big wafts of burnt orange. Fascinating beer which is relatively light even with massive flavours. Mellows from huge initial fruit kick.
Yorkshire Dales - The Strid3.80GoodGolden bitter with floral nose. Malty and smooth after initial bitterness. Thick creamy head.
