Robert Peel

Two guest beers to try here today. After avoiding the stampede at the bar, I settled down to savour their delights. The Allgates Hannibal's Nectar (4.8%) was slightly better than the usual offerings from this brewery. Their dark beers can be ok (at a push), but their attempts at lighter beers usually fail. This was quite pleasant, with a good mouthfeel, but was let down by the finish which lacked crispness and had a touch of malt in the aftertaste.

The other beer was Blakemere (them again), Big Duke. Apparently named after a dog (and not Mr Wayne), it was another 4.8%. Unfortunately, it was pure vinegar and had to be returned.

So, still waiting for a good beer in here.
