788: Cumbria | Cumbrian Ales | Esthwaite Bitter

20220717_163925The brewery: “Cumbrian Ales is a craft brewery lying on the shores of Esthwaite Water at the southern edge of Hawkshead village in the English Lake District. Established in 2003 our beers are all produced with care and pride using the wonderful Lake District Fell water.”

The beer: “Delicious amber bitter with a distinctive flavour from the combination of malts and American Cascade hops.”

After all the big dark guns on my trip to the North Lakes this initially seemed a little lifeless but I rapidly grew to like it. It’s this sort of beer that brought me back to ale after years of drinking lager after all. A very pleasant good honest bitter.
