Three Hundreds Old Ale 4.9%

“A robust, full-flavoured, dark old ale with real depth of flavour and a long finish.”

A classic in the true tradition of old ales. Satisfyingly dark but not impenetrable, good body but not overpowering, with a long pleasing finish. Exceptional balance of premium malt and choice English hops, carrying the unmistakable Chiltern ‘stamp’.

The beer’s idiosyncratic name is taken from the area immediately surrounding the brewery, known as the Three Hundreds of Aylesbury, not to be confused with the Chiltern Hundreds, which extend across the Chiltern Hills at the back of the brewery.
