Looking forward to 'baron rating' Brentwood Lumberjack very soon!

I received a selection of Brentwood ales a while back and have been very impressed with the quality of their bottled range. One ale that didn't make it was Lumberjack but fortunately I was down near Brentwood Brewery recently and so had the chance to pop in, take a quick look around and grab a bottle of it for review:

  • Brentwood Lumberjack - 5.2% strong, sweetish fully bodied bitter

Jim was very kind enough to supply me with a couple of bottles of Lumberjack as well as some more Chockwork Orange [baron rating 5/5] (we are going to do some food matching with it) as well as some 'direct from cask' samples of their PPA (Pacific Pale Ale) and Blonde. I got a quick tour and also managed to snap head brewer Sophie and Jim together.

It's a nice little setup they have going down there, and I sampled their Gold and BBC2 on tap the night before, the BBC2 is a lovely tasty quaffable beer and only 2.5%!

Thanks again to Jim & Sophie for the look around and the samples, I really enjoyed both the cask samples, the PPA had an amazing aroma and was very tasty and the Blonde was such a good session ale that I wish I'd had more than just the 1 pint container! :)
