Southwark's Bermondsey Brew 1885
My friend MB bought me a bottle of this beer a few months back when he visited on of the UK's great beer festivals. It has languished on a shelf since then.
However, on Saturday night, after a scrumptious roast gammon dinner prepared by my good wife, I decided to try it. I refrigerated it to get it noce and cool and then savoured it in a large wine glass.
It was very hoppy (which I like) and had a long after taste. It came across as a rather strong ale, but it is only really of a medium strength. I really enjoyed the ale, sipping it slowly whilst surfing the net. The only downside was that as it is a brew in the bottle style beer, there was a wee bit of sediment which led to me losing out on one final mouthful.
