Thwaites - Strong Brown Ale (5%)
Taste: An over ripe fruityness that is reminiscent of homebrew, with a few lumps of copper chucked into the mix! Coconut milk or is it the foamy bit of haribo sweets ? There's something giving a (slightly unpleasant) sweetness. This is part of the Co Op ale range.
Appearance: Darker than piano wood. I am enjoying the name - so simple, so descriptive - but others may not.
Would you buy 2? In limited circumstances (Pyle Co Op) this may happen. You're not in Pyle? Don't worry then.
Would you buy 4? There's got to be another ale - hang on there's one!
Rating (out of 7): 3 * * * Not awful, I just don't fancy any more of it at the moment.
