A pale golden ale with grapefruit and malt aroma. It has a hop bitterness and hints of grapefruit.
This ale is brewed with American Endeavour hops, which impart the grapefruit notes to aroma and taste.
This is a anniversary ale from RCH Brewery, celebrating 35 years of brewing from its inception at the Royal Clarence Hotel in Burnham-on-Sea to its present home in Hewish, near Weston-Super-Mare. The ale was on tap at the May 2015 Burnham Food and Drink Festival, along with other excellent ales from RCH.
A light amber coloured ale with rich fruit and grapefruit aromas, with hints of tropical fruit. It has a smooth, initially malt taste, followed by grapefruit bitterness from the American hops, with a hint of biscuit.
Whilst grapefruit can be a dominant flavour from American hops, it is not excessive in this ale and it has subtle fruit notes.
This is a special brew by The Brewing Crew of Balast Point in California brewed at the Hook Norton Brewery for the Wetherspoon chain.
This is a golden ale with a good strong aroma of malty hops with hints of pineapple and tropical fruit leading on to rich plum notes. It has a good warming taste of roasted light malts and fruit with a sweet beginning and middle leading to a crisp light hop bitter finish.
This is a great IPA, which is another of my top ales and well worth finding and sampling. 5*
Produced by this Scottish commercial, ginger based, alcoholic drinks company. This is a seasonal variation on their normal alcoholic, ginger based beer. It is a sweet golden beer with pleasant spiced ginger, cinnamon and orange-zest aromas. The taste has cinnamon and orange notes of Christmas pudding with a good ginger bite.
If your into alcoholic ginger beers this is a good seasonal version for winter and particularly Christmas.
