In ancient times “Chequers” berries were used to flavour ale, which is thought to be the origin of the Chequers as a pub name.
Local Chequers berries from Brampton wood, spelt wheat and autumn honey give this beer its autumn red colour and smooth, rich, fruity flavour. Enjoy a taste of “Chequers Past” Exclusively available at the Chequers for £9.50 a bottle, whilst stock last.

Very hazy dark pink - purple - brown beer! Good pale tan head. Light airy palate, semi dry. Creamy malt. Minerally and fairly dry. Light fruity flavour which is presumably the chequer berries. Whisper of black fruits as well - it’s all quite sublte. Frothy minerally finish. Was hoping for something a bit more special from a beer so expensive but it’s all right.

yngwie (16518) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 16, 2011
Bottle, courtesy of fonefan. It pours a ruby body, quite clear, and with just some bubbles on top, soon disappearing. Strange, fruity aroma that I really can’t point out what is. Some caramel breadyness too. The flavor is pretty much the same, a strange fruityness or berry flavor, quite bitter and with some bready, toffee malts. Quite earthy. Bitter finish. Medium to full body, dry. A strange one that I can’t say I appreciate. 110416
