We went to Naked City last night and tried some great stuff out:
- Pike Brewing - Auld Acquaintance: It was cask night so of course we had to try the firkin! I have had this before but not as a "Real Ale." It was quite tasty... but true to my American heritage I felt it could have been improved by being colder and slightly more carbonated. Oh well.
- Silver City - Kellerbier: This was a lager (apparently) but it tasted like an ale to me... more specifically it tasted like a Belgian ale to me. It was good though... nutty and biscuity... I didn't order another one, but I was glad to have had it.
- Naked City - Islay Special Bitter: This beer was delicious! I haven't had anything from Naked City which had really impressed me yet (anyone can dump twenty pounds of American hops in a beer and call it good) but this one was definitely the winner of the night. Once I had ordered it and it had gone 'round the table for everyone to try everyone knew what to order next. :) It was just well balanced and digestible... something I have been looking for, and appreciating more lately.
- Naked City - Islay Special Bitter: Because I wasn't driving. :)
So if you are nearby, pop into Naked City and give Islay Special Bitter a go. I think you'll like it.
Pour one for me,
