Cain's Dragon Heart Brown Ale

Headed into my 4th week on tour with Paul Brady, the opportunities to blog about beer have been slim because it has been Guiness auto-pilot. Comparing Guinesses between cities could have worked, but the bottom line is that Guinness is best in Ireland and that's it.

During a day off in Liverpool I am taking a little time for myself at a restaurant adjacent to our hotel. I was pleased to find that they had several locally Liverpool- brewed beers although I would have prefered them on draft as opposed to in a bottle.

However I was intrigued when they brought it out at room temperature.

I don't usually like American nut brown ales but this English brown ale was far from that... It was very full with a strong caramel/brown sugar tint. It still had a bit of a hoppy start despite how smooth and mellow the finish was. Loved it.
