The brewery: “Monty’s Brewery is based just a short distance from the ancient castle town of Montgomery, on the Powys - Shropshire border……….It was in January 2009 when the first casks were produced. It was only the third brew before Monty’s Sunshine started to get the recognition it still enjoys today, winning the “Darlington Spring Thing CAMRA Beer Festival”. It has since won numerous prizes, including Finalist Champion Beer of Britain.”
The beer: “Our golden strong British IPA, refreshing and easily quaffable for a 5% ale.Brewed with a great balance of malts and hops this beer is an easy drinking brew with a slight sweetness in the finish.”
It certainly was very drinkable and most welcome after a long drive up from the south coast after work. The sweetness was very subtle. As often with these type of beers it would go down particularly well on a warm summers night, served a little colder.
