Organic Raspberry
on 03 Aug 2010

Fruit beers, ideal for summer - served nationwide in pint glasses brimmignwith ice cubes. Not this one. Over chilling would hide the surprisingly delicate and fulsome berry flavours that make this a real mouth filler.
Brewed 'by hand' in Stamford at Melbourn Bros carefully (one would hope) transported to deepest, darkest Tadcaster to be blended with more beer and the organic rasp juice, this is a Sammy Smith gem. The label states it is suitable for vegans, which must cheer them up no end given their dietary restrictions.
I only bought one bottle at a farm shop near Halifax - I should have bought a half dozen as this is a real summer evening stunner.
Suffolk Strong Vintage Ale
on 24 Jan 2010

Nutty, oaky, dark and absolutely great for winter - this is an intense flavour. Greene King makes this ale by blended freshly brewed beer with a barrel-materured ale (at least two years in the maturing). Actually 6% when bought but the barrel-matured ale is originally made at 12%.

Drinkable and inoffensive. Used to be 30p a bottle in Belgian cafes so still recoil from the UK bar prices.

Sambrooks seems to be taking over the small pubs of southwest London, served alongside TT's Landlord in the group of pubs including Abbeville/Stonhouse.

It's a fuss-free pint for pubgoers. Light and with an enticing aroma and colour. Nothing very special but certainly drinkable and a welcome preference to nasty, fizzy lagers.

Flavoursome but not over powering. Refreshing when served at room temperature. And good with a curry.
