Seattle and the surrounding area prides itself on “micro-brews” and, although I find most of them to be a little too much on the bitter side, this Roslyn Dark Lager seemed to come as close to English “real ale” as I’ve come.
It’s also one of the first bottles I’ve come across that shouts out the alcohol volume on the label. In the UK it’s law I think, but over here I often don’t know how much I’m drinking which would be a pain if I ever passed my US driving test!
Seriously the more I eat out in America, the more I realise how stingy UK eateries can be with their portions, especially when it comes to meat and seafood.
Thoroughly recommend going there. Don’t expect to be able to get the draft beer the beer garden patrons are sipping though, because they don’t serve it in the restaurant……which was the only shame about the place!
