I <3 Belgian beer - some of the very best in the world ... and AVL has just the place to indulge that ... the great Belgian Beer Bar in the Thirsty Monk (lower level - downtown location on Patton Avenue)
Russell Blood Alley Bitter (Premium Bitter/ESB) Pours a clear copper colour with nice tan head. Aroma is earthy and orangey hops. Taste is earthy fruity hops with a touch of malt. Smooth bitterness. Great beer.
