Essex Craft Beer Review: Green and Pleasant Land from Nethergate Brewery

Welcome to the Shed. I am even-star and this is The Beer in Review. Today's Essex craft beer review is for Green and Pleasant Land from Nethergate Brewery.

Share It!

Green and Pleasant Land was a gold bitter. Very sweet, malty, juicy, hints of apple, aniseed, and quite a lot of dill. I didn't get a lot of the flavours advertised on the pump clip there. And it was a very sweet beer which isn't my bag in most circumstances. It had interesting flavours though and was very apt to the name of the beer and the scene pictured on the clip.

For those of you who might be visiting from abroad and are confused by the dood on the horse: That will be St. George the patron saint of England, whose saint day we do not officially celebrate in England with a day off, but unofficially celebrate with many a special beer and beer festival at the end of April. England, according to William Blake, is the green and pleasant land in question.
