So this week I yet again have brought in a British beer aged in oak casks. This one is by J.W. Lees brewery in Manchester, the very same one that brought us the Harvest Ale aged in Sherry that I raved about a while back. This time, it's the 2007 Harvest Ale aged in Calvados casks. Calvados is a region in Normandy that makes apple brandy. You can really taste the apple brandy flavor in the beer, too. As always with J.W. Lees
Next is a Bohemian Pilsner, the Czech Rebel. Some of you may recall that we used to carry Czechvar as our flagship bohemian pilsner, but unfortunately there is a dispute between the distributor and Anheuser-Busch, who recently bought the import rights to it. Luckily we found this nice little pilsner for fans of Czech lagers.
