Another day, another assessment of some local beers from the Co-op.
Adnam's Ghost Ship (4.5%) malty and refreshing with bitter almond and grapefruit flavours
Greene King Old Crafty Hen (6.5%) like the citrus-hoppy-caramel Old Speckled Hen, but richer, fuller, maltier and sweeter.
Will stand up to a turkey with all the trimmings.
Adnam's Broadside (6.3%) a complex beer with dark fruitcake, aromatic grapefruit hoppiness, bitter-sweet roasted spices, citrus and savouriness. Very Good.
Match with a rich steak and ale pie or a home-made marmalade ham.
