    And not bloody awful either, if a tad pricey.

    Because of the solera system, the brew changes from year to year; solera beer was new to me. I knew it had been used for sherry and certain vinegars, but not beer; McAllan whisky is matured in sherry barrels which I imagine is something similar.

    No. Amazing stuff, but in moderation.

    The whole point of the solera system is to keep the product consistent over the years. What comes out of the bottom each is a blend of what's gone in the top over many years. The brew may change from year to year, what is sold should be identical.

    Indeed Though there's a more fitting anagram.

    Kill The Headlights - Black Lodge. A truly awful maple and pecan porter on in The Ship And Mitre, Liverpool. It just doesn't work.
