Added: Friday, June 1st 2018
Bath Ales Lansdown West Coast IPA, 5%
This addition to the Bath Ales portfolio is available in cask and bottle and is massively hopped in the American West Coast style. It’s brewed with the finest Maris Otter malted barley, wheat, oats and crystal rye and hopped with Denali, Mosaic, Simcoe and Styrian Wolf. The beer, along with the all the Bath Ales' range, comes from the new plant installed by St Austells Brewery in Cornwall, which bought Bath in 2016: http://protzonbeer.co.uk/news/2018/05/17/cask-is-king-at-new-bath-ales-brewery
Lansdown has a bright gold colour and a spicy hop aroma with lemon and lime fruit and biscuit malt. Peppery hops, elderflower and lime fruit dominate the palate, balanced by honeyed malt. The finish is long and quenching with a fine balance of honeyed malt, peppery hops and tart fruit.
The cask version is available in Bath Ales’ pubs and free trade outlets. The bottled version, which is filtered but not pasteurised, is on sales nationally in Tesco stores: https://www.tesco.com/groceries/en-GB/products/300483677
