    First blow out - Nottingham

    No.8 NickR's Aconcagua Ale Opens well and pours pale straw, a white rocky foam stand atop the slightly hazy body. Aroma is quite unusual, sweet and spicy, hints of melon and persimmon.

    No.5 Barls' honey mild Just finishing mine off now and echo the earlier sentiments, the honey has a great complexity to it which takes this beer some place else, the floral aroma and flavours coming through a very distinct and enjoyable. top beer.
