I was invited to a Ladies Ale Night with guest speaker, beer expert Melissa Cole. She spent the evening talking us through each tasting and teaching us how to properly taste ale. The difference between sipping the ale before and after eating the food was incredible. To properly taste beer you cover the top of the glass and swill it, then remove your hand just before you take a big sniff. Amazing how many notes you can actually smell - citrus, passionfruit, etc.
We received Camden Hells Lager on arrival and a bag to takeaway with our choice of ale, a mini spirit bottle, and some other goodies!
