A Fine Pint

This is the entrance to Thomas's Bar in York. Currently they have my all time favourite Real Ale on tap. Sarah Hughes Dark Ruby Mild is brewed in Sedgley and rarely makes it's way up to this part of the world. Mild is a bit of a misnomer as it is a 6% ABV brew. Sarah Hughes was the grandmother of the current brewery owner and this is brewed to her original recipe, give that woman a medal! What is the beer like? Well it is a deep red colour as the name implies and is a complex mix of sweet syrup, dates, raisins, molasses and dark chocolate, it has a brief dry hoppy flavour but leaves a lasting sweet caramel taste in the mouth. Not to everyones taste thank goodness but very very drinkable.
