Otter – Otter Ale

WP_20141129_002 What they say: “…..

Otter Ale is a very well balanced beer that
delivers the flavours of quality floor malted barley and finishes with a combination of fruit and some bitterness. Its nose is a
balance of malt and fruit
.”

The latest guest in our local The Rottingdean Club and my 99th new beer this year. The malt seemed to edge it taste wise and the strength of the beer was clear from the taste. Enjoyable but  a couple was enough, although the occasion dictated that I had three! 4.3% A.B.V.

The club always has Harveys Sussex Bitter on and it is always excellent so litmus test for any guest beer at the club is whether I would stick with the  guest or go back to the Harvey’s. This time around the Harvey’s wins – but not by much.
