Cresset Ale

A sweet, mellow amber ale 4.0% ABV

The cresset, a fire basket, used by our cooper to set the bent oak casks into the traditional barrel shape, has always been a focal point for our coopers and brewery workforce, especially on colder days around which they would stand for rather longer than perhaps they ought to keep warm! Cresset Ale is brewed using local Barley, Wheat, Oats and Rye blended with a subtle Fuggle dry hop to give a beautifully subtle, fruity and mellow ale.

Tasting notes

A traditional sweet mellow ale. A rich malty sweetness blended with soft bitterness hop to give a delightfully mellow ale!

Unofficial Tasting notes

Subtle overtones of orange and lemon zest with a hint of mango gives a refreshing fruity flavour complemented by apple crispness! Colour : Honeycomb
