COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & Bottle conditioned; Regular.
Henley has long been known for the best pint of Ordinary. This 3.4% session ale is no exception. We use Maris Otter as a base malt with a special blend of roasted malts to give this bitter a complex malt profile.
Generous additions of 3 English hop varieties give this ale exceptional hop character.
Tasting notes: The amber coloured ale has a good balance of juicy malt and hop character on the nose. The flavour finishes with a balance of bitterness from roasted barley, leading to a long clean bitterness of English hops. Finishes dry.
Suggested food pairing: Excellent beer paired with roasted or grilled meats - chicken, pork or beef. Will also pair well with grilled vegetables.

3.1
Scopey (15683) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2013
Keg at the brewery. It pours clear amber with medium white head. The nose is earth, wood, brown bread and hay. The taste is wood, earth, brown bread, light bitterness, pithy citrus and touch of spice with a dry, bitter finish. Light-medium body and moderate carbonation. A solid session ale, but not their best.

CraftBeerNick (2808) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2012
Keg at Windsor castle hotel in Windsor, 10th October 2012. Pours amber, served too cold for my taste, the beer is nice and easy drinking, kind of caramel and undertones of strawberry on the flavour, not bad for the pathetic ABV
