I’ve been looking forward to this. A beer from a brewery a short walk from my home in Blackburn. (Or, as as we may say in my dulcet tones “Ey’ up cockers, let’s try this one ‘eh? A good ol’ bomber!”)
Thwaites will always hold a certain place in my ale loving heart. But for now, I shall try to be unbiased. I Promise.
It is a very balanced ale. Nothing too overwhelming. Although it is not without character. Smooth and creamy as it goes down, with a rich toffeeness to it. It’s the kind of drink you want as a night cap. Malty and easy to drink, not boozy enough to blow you away. It’ll keep you feeling warm with a fruity kind of taste on the tongue.
A proud taste of home for me, a decent enough brew for most
