Lately I have been rather inconsistent in publishing blog posts, so here’s a rather short beer review to tide you over until the meatier posts reappear.
In my continued quest to visit as many Samuel Smith’s pubs as possible, I wandered over to the Crystal Palace in south York today for a pint. Being a rather warm day I fancied a lager, and so I ordered the best they have to offer, the Pure Brewed Organic Lager!
Appearance: lively bubbles and head, pale gold
Nose: floral yeast, hint of ripe banana
Palate: crisp, refreshing, no cheap nasty lager taste
Finish: touch of dry hop bitterness
Rating: 3/5 Good
Afterwards I headed over to the Sea Horse Hotel, another Sam Smith’s first for me. There I had a Double Four Lager, not as good, but still serviceable. I also consumed a packet of beef crisps and delved deeper into my latest novel, Behold The Man by Michael Moorcock. A rather enjoyable day indeed!
