Beer Review: Charlie’s BBC British Ale

Beer: Charlie’s BBC British Ale
Brewer: Berkshire Brewing Company for Charlie’s Kitchen

Rating: *** (7.1 of 10)

Comments: This is a special beer on tap at Charlie’s Kitchen at Harvard Square and I may not have the name right, so please correct me if you know better than I.  This is a chestnut brown and surprisingly highly-carbonated ale with a malty aroma.  The taste is mellow and nutty and very dry with no aftertaste.  I had this beer in the beer garden with Craig who noted that it would make a better mid-autumn beer.

Beer Review: Southampton Keller Pils

Rating: *** (7 of 10)

Comments: Pilsener is not my favorite type of beer but this one emphasizes the pilsener’s strengths.  A golden-straw colored beer with a  earthy aroma.  The taste is crisp, fruity and grassy.  Makes for a good, refreshing summer beer.
