Boutilliers - Every State4.70ExcellentOne of the few really good pints that I have had today. A superb pale ale.

Basically a loo stop between buses. A good welcome from the staff who informed that Hop Stuff should be brewing soon and the beers in pubs in about three to four weeks time.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Howling Hops (Brewed at Hackney Wick) - Tropical Deluxe3.80GoodUnfined, troucal and definitely not my style.
