Friday night and with the last school bus run of the week successfully executed it’s time again for some research. No Cinema tonight so after an adequate meal and pint in the White Horse we headed across the road to the Queen Vic, an establishment that’s rapidly becoming one of our favourite evening watering holes. They generally keep two regular ales and three more ever changing ones. First up this week was this offering from the Welsh brewer Brains. I’ve had this in the bottle – Lidl’s had it on offer – and enjoyed it very much and was not disappointed by the draught version. A dark bitter, slightly sweet with a rich dark almost smokey flavour. 4.5% so full bodied but not over the top. Very nice.
