Charnwood Brewery Old School (5%)

Old SchoolDescribed as a Winter Warmer, what this shouts to me is Best Bitter.
And I love a good Best Bitter.
Charnwood’s Old School pours a rich conker red and smells of garden flowers and stone fruits.
There’s a big round chewy malt that’s crammed full of toffee and sponge pudding, a little chocolate and a big spoon of gloopy honey.
Then there’s the green pithy snap of the English hops, in which you’ll also find liquorice and tobacco, lemon zest and hedgerow greenery.
All this makes for a satisfying beer with a bitter sweet sticky finish.
Lovely stuff.
