Our Quarr Abbey Ale has gained another accolade this month, having been awarded 3 stars at the Great Taste Awards 2019!
Great Taste, organised by the Guild of Fine Food, is the acknowledged benchmark for fine food and drink. It has been described as the ‘Oscars’ of the food world and the ‘epicurean equivalent of the Booker prize’. The Great Taste logo is regarded as the sign you can trust when buying food and drink.
So what did the judges say… ‘a taste of history’, ‘the flavour delivers on all the promise, coming in delicious layers, with a perfect balance of sweet and bitter’ and ‘the mouthfeel is rich, smooth, fragrant which develops into a hint of sharpness, a rich sweet smoothness finishing with a wonderful warmth of pepper in the throat’.
We may need to update our tasting notes now!
Quarr Abbey Ale is a traditional abbey ale, which is a full bodied, top fermented ale with a dark amber colour. It offers a complex palate with a sweet hoppy aroma.
