Quantock Brewery Quantock Ale

As i build up towards their award wining stout, i rounded upon the Quantock Brewery Ale, the first beer they brewed in Somerset. Its an amber bitter, 3.8% abv bottled conditioned 500mls, using a blend of Maris Otter pale malt, crystal malt and wheat malt.
 A golden colour with a small white head, a small ring that lasted down the pint. Aroma of earthy hops, roasted malt is the dominant element. Well balanced and a good weight in the mouth, this is a good example of a session bitter, its weighs in with all you expect from one, the lower abv with the full flavour, hops malt and that 'another one please' quality. The bitterness sits at the front and upper part of my mouth, whilst a dryness follows on alongside, begging to relieved by another mouthful.
Alongside the Royal Stag, this bitter is my favorite so far.
You can buy Quantock beers from local farmers markets, or from myBrewerytap, or West Country Ales.
Again, thank you to Rob from Quantock.
