    Yes. This was like drinking a pint of cold tea, with absolutely no dimensions to it whatsoever.

    Not sure about that, had excellent best bitters from both Cloudwater and Siren before and this evening a stunningly good Marble Mild.

    Personally didn't notice any of that and my Twitter feed is quite beerified.

    Boring brown bitter now that's unusual.

    Looking back,I think Ed wray or perhaps Eddie Gadd posted a retweet about it.

    Yes, they were good. Think they got squeezed at the craft end of things - the danger of not having a good base of established outlets always taking one or two of your core beers (assuming you actually have any core beers...)

    Fallen Brewing have closed. I didn't see their beers that often where I live, but the ones that I did get to try were well made and enjoyable.
