Tinker's Damn English Strong Ale
You can hear the rattling of the tinsmith as he rolls his cart along the cobbles, and as the clinking of his wares fade in the distance, you hear the creaking of the pub's sign lollygagging in the wind. Could there be some mystical forces implying it's time for some lube? Indeed. So you step in the pub and park yourself at the bar, where the publican slides you a frothy pint of this alluring, tawny elixir promising a smooth flow down that squeaking hatch. And lube it does, with its warming 7.3% alcohol framing a bountiful body of luscious malt character so appropriately infused with caramel, toffee and just a wink of rum. Yes, and as you swirl that pint and admire the fine, floral and spicy hops tickling your nose, you'll think—damn! This is one fine, classic English strong ale to quench the palate and lubricate the soul!
