Northern Ales

Submitted by DM on Sun, 09/03/2008 - 23:07

The following beers are typical examples of beers from the North of England;

 

Timothy Taylor Landlord - a pale ale with much hoppiness and bitterness.

 

Black Sheep Black Sheep Ale - A bitter brown beer.   This is what represents the stereotypical Northern bitter for me.

 

Coniston Bluebird - A pale ale with a floral hoppiness.

 

Moorehouses Black Cat - A dark, malty mild ale.

 

Sam Smith's Old Brewery Pale Ale - a light brown bitter.

 

I'm choosing them as good examples in that they are widely available and are widely enjoyed.   This is not intended as a review of them necessarily.
