I’ll tell you this for nothing, there was never beer like this available when I lived in Brixton.
In fact, looking back the beer was pretty shocking.
Mainly I frequented the Trinity Arms and The Prince Albert, occasionally visiting The Duke Of Edinburgh, though I didn’t like über coolness of the pot smokers in the back garden talking loudly about drugs and stuff.
Reliance is brewed a stones throw from my old flat and it’s really rather good, pouring a bright gold and smelling of passion fruit and apricots.
There’s a lovely soft and gentle caramel wafer malt, and the hops are snappy herbal leaves and zingy lemon zest surrounded by garden flowers.
This is a delicate beer, an easy to drink beer, a very refreshing beer with a crisp bitter kick in the finish.
And it’s making me miss Brixton.
