Cask, Regular;
Crispin’s Ommer was developed to meet the tastes of the regular patrons of The Jolly Crispin. There they like their beers pale, with a slight citrus flavour and bitter, this is by far the bitterest ale we make. The name comes from the regulars as well who felt that Frost Hammer should be Frost Ommer to fit in with the local dialect. And so Crispin’s Ommer was born. This ale is only available at our brewery tap, The Jolly Crispin.

Cask at the Jolly Crispin, Upper Gornal. Light gold, almost clear. Crown of white head. Soft lemon drop, candy floss and marmalade in the bouquet... Taste is sweet and fruity while maintaining a malty backbone. Leading to a balanced bitter finish. Not the most exciting of beers but certainly solid and well-made.

Tap at the Jolly Crispin, Gornal. Poured a clear light amber with a thin white head. The aroma is weak malt. The flavour is medium bitter, malty, with a little citrus zest on the palate. A super ale.
