East Anglian Golden Pints for 2015

East Anglian Golden Pints for 2015

I have decided to keep this exclusively local as these are the beers I have had more than once, meaning that they have been consistently impressive to me.

Best Cask beers

Mild – Nightlight Mild from Elmtree (some argue this isn’t technically a Mild at 5% odd, so for those seeking a more traditional entry, I give you Micawber’s Mild from Mauldons)

Porter – Grain Slate

Stout – Panther Black Panther

IPA – Grain Lignum Vitae,

Best Bitter – Barrell and Sellers Best Bitter

Lager – Redwell Steam Lager

Old Ale – Adnams Old Ale (Although my favourite was Elmtree Winter Solstice but I only had it once!)

Golden Ale – Greene King St Edmunds (that’s right! You read that correctly!)

Barley Wine – Red Admiral from Old Chimneys

Speciality – Elderflower Power from Green Jack

Best Festival – Maris Otter 50

Best Pub – Kings Head Norwich

Best Brewery – Grain


Let me know what you think!

    Why no Essex beers?

      Hi Justin,

      Thanks for reading. Two main reasons really:
      1) I didn’t drink that much Essex beer (especially on cask – although I had some great pints last year courtesy of Nethergate, Colchester, Mighty Oak and Red Fox. I am also hoping to drink more Round Tower next year .)
      2. I am a bit of a staunch traditionalist when it comes to my definition of East Anglia!
