Stroud Brewery - NV
For the classic British bitter, look no further than this Amber brew. Made in Gloucestershire, England, this amber session beer has a brilliantly spicy aroma of citrus, and it’s a solid-bodied beer at great value considering its low ABV. You get just 3.8% ABV from this brew, making it the ideal choice for a ’session’. The award-winning beer is worth it if you’re a fan of bitters, and you get all the rich history behind the beer–the story of Tom Long the famous Stroud Highwayman!
10 Best Organic Beers – The Independent, ‘Stroud Brewery has one of the most impressive ranges of organic beers, which are consistently well-crafted. It has a few unusual numbers in its range, including the popular alederflower (yes, it’s infused with elderflowers) but we’ve chosen Tom Long for this list – an amber bitter, brewed at a sessionable strength and named after a mythical local highwayman. It’s a bitter that might seem a little simple on the first sip – slightly sweetened by caramel malts and with an unimposing bitterness – but stick with it and you soon begin to appreciate its uniqueness. As the malts develop a bit more richness, you should start to notice the emergence of subtle flavours of citrus and spice provided by the addition of orange and coriander. This is a Sunday afternoon kind of pint: it’ll help to ease you through the rest of the weekend and, at under 4 per cent, shouldn’t give you hungover regrets when Monday morning arrives.’ November 2017
