Craft Beer Review: Cheers John from Brentwood Brewing

Welcome to the Shed. I am even-star and this is a special historical Beer in Review. Today's craft beer review is for Cheers John from Brentwood Brewing.

Share It!

Cheers John, like many British beers, is a special edition to commemorate an historical event. In this case the 800th anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta.

A very light gold session ale. Hoppy and an astringency that was more like rose hips than citrus. It was pleasant and refreshing.

This is what the Magna Carta has to say about beer: There shall be standard measures of wine, ale, and corn (the London quarter), throughout the kingdom.

This is why you get a PINT or a HALF PINT. And now you can even get THIRD PINTS. But it is all pints which happens some how to be the perfect amount of any one beer to drink all in one go.

You may have noticed this week that I am not my usual chatty self. I'm putting it down to mental exhaustion from work and relationship. There is a bit of a break scheduled soon so hopefully will be able to recharge.

Also, a break means NEW BEERS! So that is exciting for EVERYONE!

The Beer in Review is a blog about beer. Mostly British beer because that is where I live. I post a review every week day. Make sure you check in on Friday which is when I reveal BEER. OF THE. WEEK! You can contact me with comments and questions on twitter or facebook.
