What they say: Hogshead Bitter is a very traditional style of beer using the finest Maris Otter malt, combined with luscious cane sugars complimented by delicious, fruity Bramling cross hops to give a malty, crisp and hoppy flavoured ale. It is one of our more popular seasonal ales and goes superbly with ham and light cheeses. Less well known than the widely available ‘Old Peculier’ and those that know me will read the blurb and know that this is my sort of beer. 4.1% so a nice balance of flavour and strength. Made the mistake of serving it to cold – couldn’t wait for it to warm up after it being outside in the awning – but very tasty nonetheless!
