More Beeer!

Three more nice beers to review, including a lovely newcomer: the Suffolk Springer.

Greene King Suffolk Springer Dark Ale
6% alcohol. A new beer from Greene King. Deep brown with an orange edge. Very rich toffee and malt nose with some fresh citrus notes. Richly textured palate is sweet, dark and fruity. A bold, full flavoured, warm ale. 8.5/10

Wells Waggle Dance
5% alcohol. Brewed with honey. Bronze colour. Fresh, a bit hoppy and with sweet subtly honeyed character. Nicely fresh, this is very drinkable, and the honey isn't too obtrusive. Pale ale style with added richness. 7.5/10

Young's Bitter Bottle Conditioned
4.5% alcohol. Lovely savoury, bitter ale with real presence and some complexity. Rich but fresh with food compatibility. 7.5/10
