Breakfast Beer Tasting: Dent Ramsbottom

Dent Brewery are a Yorkshire brewery based in Cumbria. Eh? Yes, they’re in a remote part of the Yorkshire Dales National Park that is actually in Cumbria. So now you know.

The basics: It’s 500ml and comes in at 4.5%. It poured chestnut with little or no carbonation and a soft, quickly disappearing head. There was a slight aroma of sweet malt and toffee.
Taste: Medium bodied. It had a sweet malt, caramel taste with a little dried fruit underneath. No discernable bitterness, just a layer of sweetness that lies on the tongue.

Finish: Short burst of sweet malt.

Conclusion: An unexciting venture into the premium Bitter category. More Ramsbum than Ramsbottom. One for your sister’s boyfriend.
