Ruddles County Ale

Taverncast On Tap #4

Ruddles County Ale

Listen to the show:

We continue in the bitters category with Ruddles County Ale. Considered by many to be among the best examples of the Bitter style, Ruddles County Ale is produced by the Greene King/Morland Brewery in the UK.

We found it to be a very good, drinkable beer - with an overall rating of six from the crew.

Then we talked a bit about the best temperature to serve beer at - apparently we're typical Americans in that we prefer our beer quite cold - we've since heard that many of you (especially overseas) like your beer quite a bit warmer than that!
