Adnams by White Lies

Emma H. is drinking a White Lies by Adnams at The Red Lion

Lies indeed. Thin pale ale that tastes of grapefruit. Sorry Adnams however you market it, this is generic and not remotely stout-like.

Colchester Brewery Ltd. by Brazilian

Emma H. is drinking a Brazilian by Colchester Brewery Ltd. at The Red Lion

Yep, still good. Everything a good porter should be. Creamy, coffee and vanilla: pudding in a glass.

Adnams by Old Ale

Emma H. is drinking an Old Ale by Adnams at The Red Lion

It's winter so Old Ale on the menu. Dark and malty, always welcome.

St. Peter’s Brewery Co. by Honey Porter

Emma H. is drinking a Honey Porter by St. Peter’s Brewery Co. at Carlton

Rich, full flavoured with bitterness tempered by very pronounced honey. Being 8 years out of date hasn't done it any harm.

Ilkley Brewery Co. by Mary Christmas

Emma H. is drinking a Mary Christmas by Ilkley Brewery Co. at Wapentake

Subtly spiced amber ale. Just enough of a hint of Christmas without it tasting like a crazy thing. Happy Friday people.

Siren Craft Brew by Broken Dream Breakfast Stout

Emma H. is drinking a Broken Dream Breakfast Stout by Siren Craft Brew at Chequers Micro Pub

Everything it should be (rich, coffeeish) and drunk in convivial company in the ever lovely Chequers micropub.

Titanic Brewery by Plum Porter Grand Reserve

Emma H. is drinking a Plum Porter Grand Reserve by Titanic Brewery at Pivní

Rich and indeed plummy. More rounded than the standard version, sweet fruitiness gently surrendering to a lingering bitterness.

North Riding Brewery by Christmas Pudding Porter

Emma H. is drinking a Christmas Pudding Porter by North Riding Brewery at Brew York Craft Brewery & Tap Room

Clove-infused Christmas in a glass. Bitter plum spice possibly. Drunk at a brewery but not the one who brewed it.

Wold Top Brewery  by Against The Grain

Emma H. is drinking an Against The Grain by Wold Top Brewery at The Phoenix

Incongruously light and summery for a very cold day. A subtle floral apricot collision and a bit too drinkable.
