Here at the brewery, we are celebrating after two of our beers won stars at the Guild of Fine Food’s Great Taste Awards.
Our Marmalade Porter has added a prestigious two star award to the host of commendations that it has received this year, including success in the World Gluten Free Beer Awards and a bronze award in the SIBA (Society of Independent Brewers) regional Independent Keg Beer Awards.
The judges’ feedback on Marmalade Porter was: “This delivers its promised aromas on the nose and they follow through pleasingly on the palate. The malty base is definitely there and overall the flavour is well balanced and rounded. A really good porter.”
In addition, Wold Top Bitter, our first and flagship beer that was first brewed 15 years ago, was awarded one star. The judges remarked: “There is good malt character, almost hinting at caramel, but it is well balanced with the bitterness on the finish. There is a refreshing mouth feel and that freshness stays right through.”
Brewery manager Alex Balchin said: “It’s fantastic news that Marmalade Porter has won yet another award and good to see that Wold Top Bitter is considered as good now as it was when we first started brewing it
“It’s a great result for the hard working team at the brewery.”
Marmalade Porter, 5% ABV, is a rich, dark porter with a sweet malty base and overtones of bitter orange and hints of coffee and chocolate whilst Wold Top Bitter, 3.7% ABV, is an amber coloured, crisp, clean session bitter. Home grown barley malt and Northdown hops give it a full flavour and a long hoppy finish.
