Don’t be fooled by it’s name, this American-style pale ale doesn’t come from Boston but from Sydney. Named after Australia’s first brewer, ‘John Boston’, the beer boasts some dubious heritage on the brewery website. However, the proof of the pudding is in the eating.
I christened my rejuvenated front deck with this fine pale ale. Boston’s Mill is a beautiful honey coloured beer, with a good malty nose and plenty of fizz. It’s nicely hooped, with caramel undertones and hints of passionfruit and nectarine. It holds its head well and finishes with a balanced bitterness. A class act, It goes well with roast Tawny Frogmouth or seafood.
Taking their name from the Boston Strangler, here’s the ‘Men in Black’ with a fabulous cover of the Burt Bacharach classic, ‘Walk On By’ ……. ‘just go for a stroll in the trees’
