White Rabbit Dark Ale

I’m not one that’s really up with all the new technology and whizz-bangery that’s out there now days. But I do know enough abbreviating for SMS to realise that OMG was in order when I first washed down the White Rabbit Dark Ale, this is a little beauty.

My final test of a beer is simple; I want to...
