How did we decide on reviewing this beer? Because New English Brewing Company was fresh off a bronze medal win with Brewers Special Brown Ale at World Beer Cup for English-Style Brown Ale, and we had never tried it before. Congratulations once again to New English on their big win!
Whether this ale won an award or not, we were excited to try it since our experience with their dark ales like Zumbar and Adams Avenue have been nothing short of spectacular. Many in our local beer community feel that New English is one of the most underrated breweries in San Diego, and after having yet another awesome beer from them, we would have to agree.
