Fox hunting in Barnes !!

My favourite seasonal ale is currently available here at the moment in the form of "Red Fox" it is 4.8% abv & stunning in both appearance & taste with it's tawny red colour, & delicious malty flavours. It is brewed with toasted oats to give a deliciously distinctive biscuity note and rich mellow aftertaste. I would like to think that it's solely down to my moaning that Fuller's have decided to make it available for a touch longer than previous years, so I won't disappoint and I promise to keep it on as long as I can get hold of it because the poor beast is being pursued & hunted down by the current "teachers pet" of the brewery, in the shape of "Bengal Lancer" at 5% abv it is pale amber in colour & full-bodied with a distinctive hoppiness that marks it out as a true India Pale Ale. It is brewed using the finest English malt and Goldings hops to evoke memories of the first versions of this beer. It has a superb refreshing style & if you haven't tried it yet it will be here towards late October so make a mental note & don't miss out. There are also  some brand  new Ales on their way from the brewery very soon, watch this space to find out what they are & when you can sink a few pints !
