This morning I took the children for a walk. It was crisp and cold but lovely and fresh.
We got home to a Sunday roast. Chicken, roast potatoes and vegetables, and a steamy gravy.
What better beer To go along with this lovely lunch than an English brewed dark lager.
I appear to be slowly falling for the charms of the Allendale Brewery.
The malting here is multi-layered, deep and intense.
Crammed full of dark chocolate and nuts, bitter and brittle toasted digestive biscuits, the flavours are strong and powerful but tempered by fruity hop loveliness, leaving you with a satisfyingly smooth rounded finish.
A perfect accompaniment to the cherry pie and custard I’ve just been handed (though my wife’s not overly happy with me writing this instead of having a conversation with the family).
