Description of the Ales is as follows
Banks's Bitter 3.8% - deep gold in colour, a classic easy drinking ale with a distinctive crisp bitter flavour.
Brakspear Bitter 3.4% - amber in colour, the initial taste of malt and well hopped bitterness dissolves into a bitter sweet and fruity flavour.
Wychwood Hobgoblin 5.2% - a full bodied, ruby beer with chocolate and toffee malt flavours balanced by a bitter and overall fruity, mischievous character.
Jennings Cumberland Ale 4.0% - a supreme and refreshing golden ale with unique character and slightly citrus aftertaste.
Marston's Pedigree 4.5% - a fascinating aroma and palate of biscuity malt, spicy hops and gentle fruitiness, all overlain with the light sulphory note that comes from the natural Burton spting water.
Ringwood Boondoggle 4.2% - a delicious blonde fruity ale with a hop and citrus aroma.
All the beers are brewed in the UK, with Brakspear and Wychwood being brewed in Witney near Oxford, Ringwood in the New Forest, Marston's in Burton on Trent, and Jennings in Cockermouth which is in the Lake District.
I usually avoid these mixed cases as they don't always represent particularly good value when quite often it is cheaper to buy individual bottles but at £1.23 per bottle and for a reasonable selection of ales seems good value.
Even cheaper than a similar offer in LIDL 2 years ago!
This particular 12 bottle assortment is £16 at Amazon; £16 in Waitrose and £15 at Iceland
