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.

Fin (10380) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2011
Bottle that Loz picked up from the brewery & shop for me 31.12.10 consumed 02.01.11 Pours mid amber with a touch of haze. Really soapy hops on the nose. There is some fruitiness and a reasonable bitter bite but yet I find the soapy hops present on the nose come through and dominate the mouth as well, its ok but its a bit too fairy liquidy for me at times.
