Cask & bottled; Regular.

A drinkable, tawny coloured ale, with a light hoppiness in the aroma. It has a good balance of malt and bitterness in the mouth, underscored by fruitiness, with a clean, hoppy aftertaste.
First brewed in 1994, ‘Jouster’ has twice been a finalist at CAMRA’s Great British Beer Festival and voted as one of CAMRA’s “Champion Beers of the Year.”
In 1999 it was also recognised as ‘Gloucestershire’s Champion Best Bitter’ as well as winning several other CAMRA regional beer festivals.
