Albion Ale is a bottled beer created by Harveys to celebrate the launch of The Brighton and Hove Albion football Stadium - The Amex. It is sold exclusively at the stadium and in Harveys Lewes Shop, and now online, with 5p from every bottle donated to Macmillan Cancer Support.

This well-hopped beer is derived from our Sussex Best Bitter. Bottled for ’The Albion’, a blend of four different ’aroma’ hop varieties imparts a delicate bitterness which is balanced by the residual sweetness of malt sugars.

Contains: Barley

thepatrickman (1502) - Lewes, East Sussex, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2017
Bottle from the brewery shop. Considering that this is a beer marketed for a football stadium, I probably shouldn't get my expectations too high. It's a fine, bland, and generally forgettable low ABV bitter that has a bit of malt and a bit of hop but doesn't really stand out in any particular way.

EdKing (2648) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2017
Bottle from the brewery shop. Pours dark chestnut brown, clear and with a medium slightly off white foam head. Nose is a fairly standard smelling bitter, caramel, toasted grains, fruity and earthy English style hops, slight brown sugar. Taste is toasted cereal grains, caramel, slight bitterness and slight earthy hop.

Scopey (15663) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle from Harvey’s bottle shop. It pours clear amber with a small white head. The nose is toasty, grain, light caramel sweetness, cake and cereal. The taste is bitter, toasted grain, earth, brown bread, touch of caramel, cereal, light spice and leaves with a dry finish. Light-medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Nice bitterness to it. A quaffable bitter.

Bottle shared with McTapps. Hops and straw with some leaves and earthy moments. Easily drinkable, dry finish, medium bitterness. Not bad.
