In the latest of our look at Marks & Spencer’s branded beers made by British brewers, we’re looking at the Cheshire Brown Ale crafted by Frederic Robinson of Stockport. It’s another old fashioned English ale made with British malt and Goldings hops, which is refreshing when almost every beer nowadays seems to be obsessed with IPAs.
It’s a wonderful deep brown colour with a woody nose and a delicately frothy head. The taste is slick, smooth, caramel and nutty in taste. All in all an excellent session ale but a strong one at a premium zone 4.7%.
Look: Deep brown, chestnut
Taste: Smooth, caramel and nuts.
Our verdict: Goes down all too easily. An excellent session ale.Tweet
