Dunham Massey - Chocolate Cherry Mild3.80ExcellentEvery sample is different, this time it's cherry that is the dominant flavour, with the chocolate malt taking a back seat. Still a superb flavoursome beer. My score 17/20.
Great Newsome - Haymaker's Tipple3.70ExcellentPale bitter full of flavour for its strength. Sweet toffee malt flavours along with a bit of fruity hop. My score 16/20.
