The word Premium is used too easily these days but this light amber beer deserves the accolade. Using our highest quality malts and a blend of Goldings and Fuggles, Daniel’s Hammer has an initial smooth slightly sweet taste finished off with a subtle dry malty finish.
This is golden in colour, with a distinctive, malty palate which is well balanced with a hoppy, tangy character and a slightly dry finish.
