Lately I have developed the habit of viewing all televised English football matches at the Rose & Crown pub in Newcastle. A mere 354 feet from the door of my hostel, I can safely say that the Rose & Crown is my new local in terms of both distance and frequency of visits. Strangely, I have also picked up the habit of exclusively drinking Worthington’s Creamflow at this pub.
I know that the stereotypical ‘local’ at his pub always drinks the same thing, but I didn’t know that I would get there so soon in life.. I hope you enjoy this post, because it’s going to be the last beer that I ever review!
Just kidding. I still drink other beers, just not when I’m at the Rose & Crown.
Worthington’s Creamflow Ale
Appearance: copper, thick white creamy head, 3.6%
Nose: hint of caramel malt, raisins
Palate: soft, mineral water, sweet malt
Finish: gentle bitterness, dry
Rating: 3/5 Good
P.S. The price of £1.85 per pint probably has something to do with it!
