The Wild Beer tasting on GF terrace is fantastic. I love beers, and BA is always behind on that front... Lets hope great beers are there to stay, but I suspect not :-(

Just tried the spicier one. Taste wise, ok. Can't tell what it smells of though even though the card mentions things. Seems familiar.
The slightly stronger one wasn't present.
May have had a glass if i weren't going anywhere else than home.

Thanks Karfa.
Even CCR seems to have taken a dive judging by that menu.

Very impressed with the selection this evening at GF LHR.

The rose champagne is Tattinger Prestige Rose NV ( a temporary supply issue so only for a couple of days).

The best of the reds is Rex Hill Willamette Pintot Noir 2013 and the whites is Bouchard Pere et Fils Pouilly Fuse Vignes Romanes blanc 2014.

Was the same at the weekend - I only had the Rosé but thought it was much nicer than the Henriot.

The Duval is in T3 GF now as well. I like the dryness. Not bad.
The bdb is the 2006 vintage and the rose is NV. Both tasty

Yes, Duval-Leroy 2006 is a treat, smooth and crisp dry. I will probably finish a bottle before boarding

In the FLounge now and it's Duval and Henriot. The Duval is looking popular!
