Marks & Spencer Cornish Red Ale (4.9%)

Brewed by St Austell Brewery for M&S, this is eminently drinkable.
There’s certainly plenty of flavours to work your way through, starting with a rich tamarind fruitiness and moving into toffee and honey, waffles, brown bread and vanilla ice cream.
There’s a nice warm a comforting roasted nut thing going on too, peanut brittle and just the subtlest hint of coffee before the hops jump in with a sharp and very English slap of hedgerow greenery, nettle tea and aniseed balls.
And as you drink and the beer warms in your glass, a very nice Demerara sugar and glacé cherry aroma drifts up at you.
I like this a lot.
