Breakfast Beer Tasting: Ramsbottom Craft Brewery-A Letter To Belgium

This morning sees me go local (the brewery is about 4 miles away) with this offering from the new Ramsbottom Craft Brewery. It’s described as a Belgium Abbey Single style and the bottle tells me it’s 5.8% and comes in bottle-conditioned 500ml form.

It poured hazy amber with reasonable carbonation and a thin beige head that quickly dissipates. The aroma was sweet malt with a tinge of spice. Wheat came through in the taste with a slight bubblegum undercurrent to the malt base. This leads to a short, sweetish finish.

The alcohol was well hidden in this by the malt sweetness and it drank like a lower strength, slightly spiced Best Bitter. An interesting first foray into RCB’s beers and I’m looking forward to trying some more.
