After trying Jack d’or by the Pretty Things beer and ale project and hearing Mike sing the praises of Pretty Things in general, I decided to pick up a bottle of St. Botolph’s Town at the Whole Foods Beer Room a couple of weeks ago. The bottle describes the brew as a rustic dark ale but their website describes it as a “Yorkshire-inspired … big malty brown ale.” The beer pours a deep dark brown with a light tan head. The aroma is toasty. The beer is very easy to drink with a smooth mouthfeel and medium body. The malt character dominates the taste with toasted, sweet and slightly burnt flavors. If you see the beer here in New York City it is definitely worth picking up as it is not always easy to find.
