Early evening with Robert S. The whole Mercato is crammed with people tonight Ė indeed I think some of my own work colleagues are tucked away in a corner somewhere eating their Christmas lunch, although I do not see them.
German Kraft - White Bock6.80ExcellentA great, slightly sweet, strong wheat beer. For some reason Boris Johnson appears on the pumpclip, which is initially off-putting.
German Kraft - Smoko5.50GoodA pleasantly smoky beer in the Bamberg style.

There are quite a few Oktoberfest events going on in London just now and, although Iím about two weeks late for the party here, there are some special beers still available from Anspach & Hobday and Mondo breweries as well as those brewed on site.
German Kraft - Fritz Taube5.90ExcellentA murky, amber-coloured, authentic Weissbier. Bananas and cloves, creamy and strong.
Mondo - India Pale Weizen6.50ExcellentA soft, wheaty, strong and hoppy beer. Interesting.
German Kraft - O5.60GoodAmber in colour, this is a classic German Festbier. Malty sweetness.

The Mercato is thronged on a Thursday evening and this brewery seems to be popular and growing.
German Kraft - Hopfen Kiss5.40ExcellentExcellent. Strong and smooth and creamy with a great hop balance. Anglo-German Pale Ale - a whole new category perhaps.

My 52nd London Brewery/Tap Room visited this year and probably my last new one. Given that there are in excess of 100 breweries in London, Iím going to have to make this a two year project.
German Kraft - Heidi Blonde5.20GoodA good, crisp, golden, Helles-type beer.
German Kraft - Dinkel Bock7.50GoodA golden, malty, strong beer.
