636: Warwickshire Beer Co. | Yer’ Bard

20200118_152330The Brewery: “At the Warwickshire Beer Co. we brew and bottle real ale from a former village bakery in Cubbington. Production started in 1998 using a six-barrel plant.”

The Beer: “Our newest ale brewed to celebrate Shakespeare’s 400th anniversary. A rich copper ale, aromas of toffee & fudge malts with raspberry & nuttiness. Flavours: sweet fudge with a citrus & hoppy finish.”

Rasberry, citrus, hoppy? Had I read that prior it might have put me off a tad. However what passed my lips was very tasty indeed. I didn’t find it too hoppy or fruit at all, a very welcome pint, even to my awkward palate. 4.3% A.B.V.
