Currently a limited edition Friar's Ale Strong Bitter is one of 4 new editions to the Festival Premium Ales range of beers which aim to celebrate the best of British beer. 

Inspired by Greene King's famous Abbot Ale, this is a strong bitter to be savoured.

Deep amber in colour with a white head and an ABV of 4.6%, this beer displays masses of hop earthiness and citrus notes overlaid with malty biscuit aromas.

This is a medium bodied beer, distinctively flavoursome with a delicious mid palate malt complexity. The balanced but notable bitterness is levelled off with an abundance of hop flavour.
  • Size:  35 pint
  • Bitterness: 4 (0-Least to 5-most bitter)
  • Hop additions: Columbus 15g, Admiral 15g, Target 15g and Hallertau Brewer's Gold 15g
  • ABV: 4.6 %

The UK is steeped in brewing history and is home to its own unique style of beer that is now imitated the world over. Along with the original powerhouses of commercial brewing there has been a recent increase in the number of fantastic micro-breweries that are now carrying the torch of creative brewing. Festival Premium Ale kits pay homage to some great beers that in our opinion are truly outstanding examples of what the UK has to offer.
