New Forest Ale is a copper coloured tradional beer best bitter. Brewed with 100% English hops, it has a well balanced malty body and a highly quaffable hoppy bitterness. A blend of Pioneer, East Kent Goldings and Fuggles hops provide a floral grassy aroma matched by cleansing citrus notes in the aftertaste.

Bottle. Massive head on poring that took a long time to dissipate. When it did what was left was a golden body.Taste was quite bitter but alround this was very disappointing.
