Beer list was so 'impressive' that my ale drinking friend chose Tennents!
BeerABVScoreNotes
Stewart - 80/-4.40AcceptableGood example of the the style. Deep red, limited hopping but full of fruit. Spoiled by poor carbonation.
Greene King - Double Hop Monster IPA7.20PoorSearing alcohol, some graininess and limited musty hops. Work still needed I think.
