COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Brewery conditioned (filtered)
A refreshing "thirst quenching bitter", with an exceptional taste, light amber in colour with a rounded malty/hoppy pallet. Brewed to be enjoyed by gardeners or gentry alike. First brewed as an exclusive celebration beer for the Royal Horticultural Society garden at Wisley for their 100 year Centenary, Gardener’s Tipple proved to be a great success. We brew a rounded malty base from finest English malted barley in the mash tun and combine it with fresh local Fuggles and Goldings whole hop flowers in the copper to achieve a long lasting finish. Light amber in colour, it is a refreshing and thirst quenching bitter, perfect for relaxing after a hard day in the garden.

500ml dark bottle, filtered, from Tesco. 4%. A clean and pleasant enough bottled bitter. Chocolate notes, and some dusty, twiggy hops. OK, but this doesn’t really rock my boat.
