Blue Monkey Primate Best Bitter
Amber & Bitter
Blue Monkey have gone back to traditional flavours with this perfectly balanced bitter. Using a wide range of malt to give this a rich depth and abundance of flavour. Offset this with a soft lingering bitterness leaving the drinker yearning for more.
Castle Rock - Preservation
Brown & Fruity
Brewed to the traditional East Midlands style. Mid-brown / reddish easy drinking full flavoured best bitter is well rounded with some residual sweetness which is balanced with a resinous hop character. A hugely popular beer that deserves to be savoured!
St Austell - Tribute
Amber & Fruity
"Tribute is a magnificent example of a bronze coloured English bitter, with a rich aroma of biscuity malt and tart citrus fruit from the Willamette hops. Juicy malt, hop resins and tangy fruit coat the tongue, while the finish is long and lingering, with a fine balance between malt, hops and fruit, finally becoming dry and bitter."
Timothy Taylor - Landlord 4.3%
Amber & Refreshing
A hoppy, increasingly bitter finish compliments the background malt and citrus character of the full-flavoured and well-balanced amber ale.
