Late evening visit, so easy off one bus to catch another. Hoping to find the Bad Seed beer and it was on.

Bad Seed - Become the Legend (collaboration with Wild Weather)3.90GoodThe infamous rhubarb and hibiscus grisette. Any grisette sourness balanced with the rhubarb fruitiness

Brief bus change visit late evening. One of the coming soons is Bad Seed's collaboration with Wild Weather for a rhubarb & hibiscus grisette, on mid-week probably and an intriguing beer description. Where do these concoctions all end?

BeerABVScoreNotes
Wylam - Cascade4.10ExcellentWylam puts degrees Plato on its pumpclips, must look up what it means. Well I have now and "Plato gravity scale is a measurement of the concentration of dissolved solids in a brewery wort. Degrees Plato (°P) is used to quantify the concentration of extract (mainly sugars derived from malt but also including other soluble material in wort) as a percentage by weight."

BeerABVScoreNotes
Arbor Ales - Dunning-Kruger4.80ExcellentIn the field of psychology, the Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias wherein people of low ability suffer from illusory superiority, mistakenly assessing their cognitive ability as greater than it is. Me perhaps after that 7.4% at The Long Pond earlier?
