Drinkable beer but doesn’t inspire in any way, wouldn’t buy it again but you drink the beer without really noticing. Ok. If nothing else is available.

Marston’s Bombardier – Glorious English

Savour the distinct aroma, then surrender to the perfect balance of malty richness, tangy hops and sultana fruit on the palate.

Natural mineral water, the ripest English fuggles hops and crushed crystal malt deliver this experience of England in a glass. Brace yourself for a long soft spicy finish.

Greene King IPA

pump-clip-preview-imageGreene King IPA is  an easy drinking, session ale with a hoppy taste and aroma making it clean, crisp and moreish.

Carefully selected pale, crystal and black malts join with Pilgrim, Challenger and First Gold Hops to make a complex, refreshing ale.

What’s more it is brewed next door to Dave’s old primary school!

Wizard – Robinsons Brewery

Robinsons Wizard

This is the stuff of Cheshire legend (The Wizard of Alderley Edge), combined with 5 English hops, pale, wheat and magical crystal malts.

The result is Wizard, a mythical amber ale with a spell-binding fruity, zesty palate…and a tantalising hint of blackcurrant.
