  • Brewery’s description: Big, ballsy, barmy, and barrel aged. London Balling is not typical. It’s a skirmish of flavor. The barrel imparts oak and vanilla mixed with the caramel sweetness from a malt bill with brick, that’ll knock your bloody bollocks around. Hey Bloke? Fancy that and you’ll be gobsmacked.
