Marks and Spencer is doing beer now? Oh well, let's try it. 

Ok, in keeping with my “bugger it, I’ll try any beer once” credo, I decided to have a crack at Marks and Spencer’s home brand Bock.

Why well I was in Hong Kong, far from home and beers I knew and the choices were limited.

(Not that limited, there are actually some great beers in Hong Kong, I just didn't know that at the time... there will be some reviews of good local brews later).

Anyway, it was either this or Tsing Tao so into the shopping bag it went.

And you know what? I don’t mind this!

Bitter, dark and with an aftertaste like burned treacle toffee. Made by someone called Butcombe Brewery in Bristol (which sounds a bit old school but is probably a giant factory) it’s a bit thin but I’ve got to admit it reminds me of a lot of dark beers I’ve been served in English pubs.

Would I buy it again? Most probably. Quite a nice surprise!
