Next beer from Rudgate Brewery is Battleaxe Bitter, a delightful 4.8% ABV copper brown ale. The aroma’s quite fruity, and the flavour is reminiscent of orange and hazelnuts, nicely dry without being overly so. This is another great example of a beer of its kind form Rudgate, this time the archetypical bitter. This could be a great session beer, but would go well with cheese too, or a ploughmans lunch, sitting outside the pub, on a warm Sunday afternoon.
Next up: Rudgate Jorvik Blonde.
