Surprisingly crisp

This is another beer from the excellent Meantime Brewery just down the road from me in Greenwich. It is sold in larger branches of the supermarket Sainsburys under their ‘Taste the difference’ label.

Franconian style dark lager, 5%

This is the colour of porter. It has a malty nose with hints of caramel. It does not smell heavy or thick, though, it seems fresh and full of life. The palate is really rather crisp and refreshing, very nice. There are some rich malt and caramel flavours there, but the overall impression is of a fresh, lively drink that is both refreshing and flavoursome.
