“Central Chilterns Champion, The Chiltern Society Craft Beer Awards 2017”
Brewed in the style of a harvest ale, this beer has an impeccable pedigree. Premium quality malt, with the aromatic fruitiness of only a single famous English hop for balance, results in a beer of the finest classical style. Floral on the nose, beautiful hop and full-mash malt characteristics on the palate, combine in a memorable finish.
First mashed-in and subsequently launched by the Earl of Buckinghamshire, a direct descendant of the beer’s patriotic namesake. Brewed commemorating the brewery’s 15th anniversary.

This beer managed to draw me in by having the best aroma of all the finalists – although not the hoppiest. Dried, fruity flavours are not normally associated with IPAs but here they led to a dry, spicy and peppery hoppy finish – in a pleasantly astringent beer. Most importantly I wanted to drink more!
