Boot Bitter 4.3% ABV
Balance is all about ‘not too much but just enough’.
In our Best Bitter we are looking for the perfectly balanced traditional English ale. Floor malted Maris Otter Pale Ale and Crystal malts with just a hint of Roasted Barley set up the malty palate.
Two varieties of English hops – Challenger and Goldings give us clean, crisp bitterness.
Late hopping with an exciting blend of specially selected English aroma hops (the varieties have to remain secret) gives the fresh Citrus/spicy aroma that completes the balancing act.
Malt and Hops in perfect balance.
Clod Hopper 3.9% ABV
Our Gold is an unashamedly hoppy beer.
Maris Otter Pale Ale and Caragold Malts create the golden canvas for this enchanting Pale Ale.
Judicious late, very late and dry hop additions give a citrus dominated beer; its immediate impression is soft and smooth yet builds to a climax of hoppiness hints of caramel and an enduring, bitter finish.
Tuffer’s Old 4.6% ABV
Boot Porter’s exciting use of Malts and Cereals (Maris Otter Pale Ale, Amber, Munich, Dark Crystal, Black, Roasted Barley, Oats), Roasted Barley and specially selected English Hops (Challenger, Goldings, Bramling Cross,) produce a truly unique beer. Satisfying but not satiating.
Its aromas are cappuccino, chocolate, dark fruits and vibrant fresh peel. The mouthfeel is velvety and rich, with notes of coffee, chocolate and hazelnuts with warming alcohol and cocoa in the finish.
Repton Cross 3.7% ABV
Maris Otter Pale Ale and Crystal Malts give a beer with a smooth mouth feel and hints of nutty roasted character.
Goldings and Challenger early hop and Cascade late give a well balanced yet robust bitterness.
Smooth in the mouth with hints of roasted malt characters and a nice dry finish and hint of bitter.
The perfect session bitter here to help the rebirth of the Repton Cross.
