IPA 6.0%Anspach Bermondsey Bier-Traveller (7)

From the first sip, this was a winner, with full blown Flavours, and a not outrageous abv.

Containing Simcoe, Centennial & Columbus to Galaxy, Citra & Summit Hops, so their website says, this has all the American Hops that make Ale of this style a winner.

 

 

Sour Dry Hop 4.?%Anspach Bermondsey Bier-Traveller (14)

It was not possible to determine the abv, the Brewery Website does not have this Ale, perhaps it is one of the Experimentals.

This Ale was a version of the classic Lambic, the Flavours were full on in the Geuze style.  Thinner in body than the Belgian equivalent hence the guess at less than 5.0%.

With limited bench seating inside and no seats outside, this venue was never over-busy.  Perhaps being at the northern end of The Bermondsey Mile the majority work their way south and so by mid afternoon there is less pressure here.  With a single queue for the separate toilet for males and females, the was a friendly place to stand.

The Chap collecting the glasses was excellent, tolerant, great humour and most helpful

The Two Beers sampled were so impressive we had to alternate.  This Venue was a highlight of the first trip.
