Good quality, slightly sweetish lager, drinking in the mould of a Belgian blonde beer. Voted World''''s Best Standard Premium Lager at the World beer awards in London, 2009.
A strong, bottle-fermented dry cider, made from the produce of Ampleforth Abbeys own orchards.
Roger Protz, editor of the Good Beer Guide, describes this beer as "A russet-brown beer with a lively head of foam. The aroma and palate are rich with creamy, biscuity malt, dark raisin and sultana fruit and a good peppery hop note. The finish has great length and is dominated by creamy malt, dark...
Deliciously hoppy ale, good citrussy bite, slight malt sweetness, and a long hoppy finish
Carafa III - check. Loads of hops - check. Black IPA - check, check and check again.
The self-proclaimed bad-boy of Anglo-American IPAs, containing what can only be described as "quite a lot" of hops.
Top quality abbey ale, smooth and surprisingly easy to drink. Fairly dry, with subtle spice notes.
Flavoured with honey, but fermented to be dry rather than sweet, this golden blonde ale has noticeable floral honey edge
Darker version of the honey ale, slightly sweet, with hints of dried fruit in the finish
Featuring a great combination of sweet Carapils and spicy Rye malts, and dry hopped for days with American hops, this beer derives its name from the pool balls used to weigh down the hop sack in the beer during said dry hopping.
Black Betty's strong malt backbone and slight roasty character hold up the strong bouquet of the Columbus, Chinook and Citra hops present in abundance.
Packs a big tropical fruit and citrus (unsurprisingly!) character, but, despite these strong flavours, retains a remarkable balance and quaffability.
Excellent strong dark ale. "Riggwelted" is the word used to describe an unfortunate sheep who cannot get back to its feet. A few of these, and you'll get the idea!
Multigrain wheat beer, with hints of spice, tropical fruit and citrus notes. The use of oats and barley give a fuller body to this beer.
Complex, winey gueuze, quite dry with a refreshingly tart finish
A top-notch interpretation of a German bock beer. Sweet maltiness prevails, with some gentle bitterness keeping things tidy in the finish. Luscious and classy.
IPA is dead showcases 4 hop varieties from 4 different continents. The result is 4 radically different single hop IPAs. This year's hops are: Goldings (UK), Waimea (New Zealand), HBC (USA), and Motueka (New Zealand)
A big, very bitter IPA featuring zippy citrus flavours from Centennial and Columbus hop varieties.
This heavy weight of the beer world is strikingly delicate with a white gold appearance. The light fruity aroma dominates the initial confrontation; lychee, kiwi and passionfruit all prevail with subtle nuances of cherry and strawberry.
Medium-bodied IPA, just straddling the territory between pale ale and IPA, Orange and citrus, sweetish palate, finishing with a nice bitter flourish
Big IPA, lots of ripe fruity aromas, starts sweet on the palate, then becomes bitter and pithy in the finish. Great!
