COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.
Our bitterest beer for the more discerning drinker. Malty flavoured and dark in colour, we believe it will be a favourite for years to come.
Proper Ansome starts as it means to go on, with a gentle opening of the bottle that gives way to fresh, immediate hoppy aromas, a relatively calm overall pouring nature, and a caramel colour.
The layering in ones first taste is a pleasant combination, very smooth feel to the mouth, an eddying honeyed sweetness to the taste-buds, and - to the nose - a lightly earthy scent.
The aromas continue to swell accordingly, lengthening in the glass to reveal a herbal edge which brings to mind the fundamental quality of ale.
And here we find Proper Ansome, resting in the fields at sunset, mellow, rustic, and perfectly in tune with the pastoral rhythms of the South West.
