Lunchtime session for six of us - tried hard but we couldn’t drain the Summer Lore. First ones in, last out. Good session, in the rain we weren’t moving.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Gritchie - Summer Lore3.60ExcellentGood citrus notes and very moorish.
Potton - Lowlands French Ale4.00GoodUnlined but reasonably clear, dry but rather thin taste.
Tiny Rebel - Strawberry Milkshake4.20AcceptableHad a taster of this but too like an alcopop for my taste.
