Ruddles County Ale


County is a deep, amber-coloured ale from Ruddles Brewing (actually part of the Greene-King group) with a creamy-coloured head. It has a very pleasant, hoppy nose, with quite an estery character backed up by a nutty, malty weight. On the palate it has a broad, grainy nettle and herbal quality, with quite a full-bodied richness. There’s a real bitter-edge to this beer, said by Ruddles to come from the Bramling Cross hops. This is a really good for a big production ale.
