610: Truman’s | Swift London Gold

20190820_123845The Brewery: “Brewed in the heart of East London, Truman's is all about crafting great beer with skill, belief and passion. One of the greatest names in British brewing, Truman’s has been a part of London life for almost 350 years. Closed in 1989 during dark days for the brewing industry, Truman's was reborn with the opening of our new brewery, The Eyrie, in Hackney Wick in 2013.”

The Beer: “Lip-smackingly drinkable, Swift is brewed with both lager (Saaz) and ale (Cascade) hops for the perfect blend of flavour and refreshment. Juicy, gently hoppy and mellow it is a firm favourite of the brewery team after a hard day’s work.”

It went down well, but then I had been working up a bit of a thirst. Not my favourite but ok. Didn’t offend but neither did it excite. 3.9%. A.B.V
