Three of my favourite people in beer. Working together. Making a beer that few thought twelve months ago was worth remaking. What is 1955 to you? In my family, it's the year of my parents' courting in Scotland. The year before the wedding. Mom is serious and twenty-one. Dad is 25 and bookkeeping in Hasties, a shipyard subcontracting specialty firm. Before they decided to roll the dice on each other and a few more before they decided to roll the dice on Canada.
Pretty Things 1955 Double Brown pours bright chestnut under mocha cream rim and foam. The aroma is subdued twig and brown bread crust. In the mouth, there is greater intensity. Ron discussed the beer just before Christmas in 2008. Two types of sugar in the Whitbread original but low 70s% attenuation leaves a lighter body but still nutty richness. A bit of an almond or black cherry note. Very attractive. Plenty of hedgerow bitter herb hops.
Solid BAer respect.
