Chiltern Pale Ale 3.7%

“Excellent quaffing ale – light and refreshing.”

Designed as an aperitif or as a drink on its own. Relatively light in colour, with a creamy smoothness, it has a good definition on the palate and a refreshing, cleansing finish.

When this beer was launched in 1980 it was the first commercially brewed new beer in Buckinghamshire since the war. The beer takes its name from the brewery.

See what Giles du Boulay, CAMRA BLO (brewery liaison officer) had to say about this beer:

“I have had the pleasure of enjoying draught Chiltern Ale (now called more accurately Chiltern Pale Ale) for over 35 years, in fact almost from the time it was first brewed commercially.  I call this beautifully balanced ale an “unsung hero” as whilst its character is modest and its flavours are subtle on the palate, it is consistently satisfying in its refreshing finish at whatever time of year one drinks it. In short it is a proper beer.”
