Rudgate Battleaxe

2013-06-29 19.45.45

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.

Chiltern Brewery Battle of Britain Ale


Feeling quite patriotic after last night’s civic celebrations of the Diamond Jubilee, the Chiltern Brewery’s Battle of Britain Ale was the obvious beer to try tonight. It’s an extremely refined ale, with a big, rounded flavour reminiscent of toasted hazelnuts. It’s a beautiful deep amber colour with a head that really lasts, and an ABV of 5% (though it seems to pack a much stronger punch). I’ll be trying this again.
