One woman's ale journey

A beery boozy journey with delightful snacks along the way and a book in my hand.

Springhead Roaring Meg


From the glowing sun on the label, I wouldn't have expected anything other than the deep golden ale that burst out of this bottle.  It has a slightly floral aroma but the overall smell is of sweet golden honey.  There's a reasonably thick bright white head which shows no sign of dispersing.

Roaring Meg is a rather splendid golden ale.  It has a refreshingly crisp dry taste with only a hint of slightly bitter citrus aftertaste; it's so very pleasant and easy to drink which makes it disappear out of the glass very quickly.  It is well carbonated without being overly fizzy and the head leaves thick lacing on the side of the glass.

A lovely golden ale for a day in the sun or an evening in front of the fire reminiscing about the day that summer came to the North East.

Brewed by Springhead Brewery, Retford, Notts
5.5% ABV
